Top Album Releases : December 2008

Nick’s Top

None.  Per usual, not much released this month but reissues.  Pretty psyched about Van Morrison’s Moondance vinyl reissue, however.  I’ll go ahead and call Animal Collective’s new album my top January release.  

Cory’s Top

  1. Lucksmiths: First Frost (even though I think this might have actually have been November and I just missed it)

For a more complete list of December 2008 Releases, see below the break…
