Do You Like Rock & Roll Music?

Forgive me ... I'm a little behind on this blog thing. Anyhow, the annual Village Voice Pazz & Jop Critics Poll came out last week. Here's what ruled my ears in 2008.

The year in music is already shaping up nicely for 2009. Franz Ferdinand's third LP, Tonight, dropped today, while Morrissey's Years of Refusal follows February 17th and U2's long-awaited studio effort, No Line on the Horizon, is released March 3rd. More good stuff from M. Ward, Neko Case ... the list goes on and on.

BUT! Can someone please explain Animal Collective to me?

I want a new Doves album. It's been nearly four years since Some Cities. But word on the street is that their fourth album is finished. New tracks will be debuted in their native UK in mid-March, and first single "Kingdom of Rust" is slated for a March 30th release.
