2008: The Year in Reviews


Regular readers might be interested in noting the top ten most-read reviews of 2008:

1. Fleet Foxes, Fleet Foxes [by a landslide]
2. Peter Gabriel & Friends, Big Blue Ball
3. The Fireman, Electric Arguments
4. Weezer, Weezer [The Red Album]
5. U2, Zooropa [part of the “Lost Classics” series]
6. Garage Rock Round-Up: King Khan and the Shrines; Foxboro Hot Tubs
7. The Tallest Man on Earth, Shallow Grave
8. Wovenhand, Ten Stones
9. Susan Tedeschi, Back to the River
10. Beck, Modern Guilt

And, the five least-read reviews of the year:

1. The Black Keys, Attack & Release
2. Sheryl Crow, Detours
3. Panic at the Disco, Pretty. Odd
4. Islands, Arm’s Way
5. Los Campesinos!, Hold On Now, Youngster…

And on a more personal note, I offer my sincere thanks to all of those faithful readers, old and new alike, who made the first year of this little experiment such a success. The Hurst Review has been rewarding to my beyond all expectations; I can only hope that a few of you feel the same way. And now we go upward and onward, for a new year of music coverage and reviews. Cheers!

    Thank you for your hard work, Josh. Even though we don’t always agree, you faithfully bring your critical abilities to bear, often on artists that I have never heard of! This has helped me to expand my musical horizons. Blessings to you and Kati this new year, and keep up the good work, sir!
