In our upcoming issue—out on the frozen streets of Portland sometime tomorrow (Godspeed, you brave distribution drivers!)—we ask dozens and dozens of members of this city's local music community to list their top five albums of 2008.

Now it's your turn.

Comment below on your top five, and feel free to include your favorite single (mine is this song, but only because my obsession with this video) of 2008 as well. Once everyone has posted their top albums, we'll all go through the list and silently judge you on your taste in music.
