Shout And Twist's Albums Of 2008 - No. 131 to No. 118

Right then. Here we go. Over the next few weeks I'll be posting up my albums of the year, in order, all one-hundred-and-thirty-one, from the most dreadful to the very best...

131. One Night Only ‘Started A Fire’ (Vertigo) – Worst Album Of The Year. Don’t let em fool you.

130. The King Blues ‘Save The World. Get The Girl’ (Island) – Shameful cockney trollop.

129. Katy Perry ‘One Of The Boys’ (Capitol) – Single good. Album shocking.

128. The Fratellis ‘Here We Stand’ (Interscope) – Soulless and bigotry-enducing.

127. Stephen Malkmus With The Jicks ‘Real Emotional Trash’ (Matado) – Bring. Back. Pave. Ment.

126. The Metros ‘More Money Less Grief’ (1965) – Shameful cockney trollop take two.

125. The Automatic ‘This Is A Fix’ (Polydor) – Ahhh what could have been.

124. Youthmovies ‘Good Nature’ (DiS) – Disappointing debut. Vocals sucks bad.

123. Guillemots ‘Red’ (Fiction) – Get over it.

122. Sam Sparro ‘Sam Sparro’ (Island) – One or two dance anthems. Ten-odd scumbuckets.

121. Black Mountain ‘In The Future’ (Jagjaguwar) – Overwrought and motionless psych-rock.

120. Figurines ‘When The Deer Wore Blue’ (Paper Bag) – Melodic Danish pop that too many do better.

119. You Me At Six ‘Take Off Your Colours’ (Slam Dunk) – Semi-Taking Back Sunday blather from Surrey.

118. Secret Machines ‘Secret Machines’ (Reprise) – Like every Secret Machines record, one killer tune out of eight.
