Chase Jackson’s Top 25 Albums of 2008, Pt. 1

Here is the first in what we hope will be a series of end of the year guest lists.  This one comes from Chase Jackson, talented soul responsible for the Silence in Architecture-approved Death Knelly.  There are already a few best-of-’08 lists floating out there in cyberspace, but this is probably the best I’ve seen so far. 

Be sure to check out Death Knelly’s air-tight, fly-as-a-kite cover of Fleetwood Mac’s “Over and Over“.  

Editor’s Note: The picks are by Chase…the extra videos were chosen by me, so keep in mind they don’t necessarily reflect Mr. Jackson’s favorite songs off of the accompanying album.
