#45. Be Your Own Pet - Get Awkward
#44. The Raconteurs - Consolers of the Lonely
#20. Kings of Leon - Only by the Night

Of course, this isn't to imply Rolling Stone is the slightest bit relevant these days. Which, actually I guess is the only thing that winds up making this list kind of interesting. It's like having those couple of radio-friendly bands you always wind up talking about with your semi-cool uncle while visiting the family because those are the only bands you like that he's heard of.

So, in an only slightly relevant segue, I think I actually care more about what Cream readers found to be tops in '08 than the fogies at Rolling Stone. There's been a lot of squabbling, bitching, moaning, groaning, praise and condemnation this year over what's good and what isn't. Who's got a Top 10 they want to share? Mine's after the cut to be scrutinized at your leisure.

1. Kanye West - 808s and Heartbreak
2. Crystal Castles - Crystal Castles
3. Girl Talk - Feed the Animals
4. Ghostfinger - The Feeler
5. Santogold - Santogold
6. Lil Wayne - Tha Carter III
7. Common - Universal Mind Control
8. Jay Reatard - Matador Singles '08
9. Jasmin Kaset - Jasmin Kaset
10. Cheap Time - Cheap Time
