It's that special time of the year i.e. the end of the year when everybody goes even more list mad than normal. Always the ones to follow fashion (well, sort of…), the occupants of Bluesbunny Towers decided to do some lists of our own and we thought we would start off with the obvious one. Obvious to us anyway so here is the list of our album of the months from the year 2008 with our choice for Album of the Year right at the end. If you don't have the patience, you can scroll down now.

And the Album of the Year…
After much deliberation and serious drinking, we chose Brigid Kaelin's "West 28th Street". An album that simply charmed us with its mix of top quality musicianship and sentimental songwriting, it seemed like the logical decision.
