Default 2008 Highlights

Right,with 2009 fast approaching I was just wondering what are people's opinions on the following in 2008...

1) What is your favourite album of 2008?
2) Which was your favourite gig of 2008?

I've a good idea which gig will be voted favourite so I'm excluding that one from my vote and I'm going to vote for -:

Best album - Wake The Sleeper by Uriah Heep
Best gig - Alter Bridge at Manchester Apollo

Tesla's Forever More was a very close 2nd as was the Heep gig at Holmfirth last night!

Album of 2008: Julian Cope-Black Sheep
Gig of 2008: Merzbow-Leicester

The only reason i have put Merzbow above Saxon at Holmfirth and their awesome set with Motorhead is because i never thought i would see this Japanese composer,nevermind in my own back yard.If was not for that reason Holmfirth with you lot would win by miles.

1) What is your favourite album of 2008?

I'd say Chinese Democracy, OK call it a cliche or whatever, and yeah it took forever to come out, and yeah, no Slash or Izzy or Duff, but it's fuckin' good music.

2) Which was your favourite gig of 2008?

Saxon, Holmfirth Picturedrome, well, holy hell was it a good show, I mean, I was just fucking amazed by how good it was, seriously.

(Second and third best best shows: Saxon at Download and Saxon in Manchester).
