Her songs are similarly sparse and fragile, with some astonishingly mature lyrics framed by beautifully pretty melodies.

5. Portishead - Third

April 28, 2008
Critic Score
87
25 reviews

This is a record substantially more alive than its eponymous predecessor. Portishead still sound like no-one else, but more importantly they aren’t just sounding like themselves, either: this is an album that occupies its own space, untethered to any of the musical trapping and quagmires of genre that snare so many other artists.

4. Fleet Foxes - Fleet Foxes

June 3, 2008
Critic Score
84
22 reviews

This could be the closest this generation gets to its own Pet Sounds. A stunning debut then, and one that will make Fleet Foxes one of the most sought after bands of the year.

3. Bon Iver - For Emma, Forever Ago

July 8, 2007
Critic Score
84
20 reviews

Lyrically, Vernon is revealed as something of a poet. These are words that are destined to be poured over and analysed
