Merry Christmas -PPO Top 10 for 2008

I am sitting here up to my ass in snow thinking about the great music that has been presented to us this year and I am finding it difficult to come up with just 10!!
So many talented artists and groups, It is hard to make a decision! I am basing my list on the fact that most of these discs were in heavy rotation at home, work and in my car.
Well, here you are...
10. The Pop Project - Stars of Stage and Screen
9. The Explorers Club - Freedom Wind
8. The Pickpockets - Underworld
7. The Pillbugs - Everybody Wants a Way Out
6. Jordan Zevon - Insides Out
5. The Favorites - Bright Nights, Bright Lights
4. The Gurus - Now
3. One Lone Car - North, South, East And The Rest
2. The Parties - Can't Come Down
1. Telepathic Butterflies - Breakfast in Suburbia
Now that's my list, give me yours! I would like to see them. Just leave them in the comments section, maybe there will be something that we missed this year!

Thanks for everything and have a great holiday season. One album/band I haven't seen hardly any mention of online is Attic Lights. I first read about them in Mojo back around Aug. or Sept. and from what I read they sound like prime PPO material.
