  Best Albums of 2008
The “top albums of 2008” is obviously a matter of opinion. I am not a well-regarded and highly-heralded music critic. I really don’t care what kind of music you listen to either. Therefore, I have decided to rate the music I listened to in 2008 on the Jason Awesomeness Meter. I took the top 8 albums ranked by how much they *JAM*.

Metallica caught me by surprise with one of their best albums of their career. For those that care I would rank the Metallica albums in this order:
Girl Talk is actually a Biomedical Engineer named Greg Gillis from my Alma Mater (Case Western Reserve University). At first listen it sounds like a mash-up record...and maybe it is. If so he is the best at it. In much the same way you might have a 13 year old cousin named Jared that is a "guitar player" but I'm sure he's no Jimmy Hendrix. That's the rift between Girl Talk and any other mash-up artists.

Biggest Disappointment
Rise Against - Appeal To Reason.
Not that I didn’t like it - it was actually pretty good. I just had such high hopes after the wonderful “Sufferer and the Witness”.

EP of the Year
It's a tie between State Fair - Change and Emery - While Broken Hearts Prevail
State Fair is a local band (to Cleveland) but they deserve national attention because they are truly that good.
