IMP's Top 10 Albums and Singles of 2008
IMP's real value has always been the inherent diversity of its members' choices. Unlike other music-related websites who strive to be arbiters of taste, IMP's primary mission is to fuel the fire of subjectivity. Accordingly, the annual IMP top ten lists are scattershot and surprising, ranging from Brooklyn indie rock to Bangladeshi folk to Balearic house. So, publishing the cumulative year-end list ends up as a sort of disservice to that subjectivity, muffling the beautiful noise of each member's preferences. Meaning, accept these two lists at face-value, but seek out the individual lists of IMP members—on their blogs, in Facebook positings, and in their monthly mixes. Now, here's a snapshot of the year that was 2008, courtesy of IMP.
