Some comments on that list:

1. My ass Outkast releases an album together this year; we’d be lucky if we got both solo albums in 2008.2. I can’t tell whether Edgar Allen Floe is just about the dumbest or hottest name I’ve ever heard.3. I can tell that When Life Gives You Lemons, You Paint That Shit Gold is just about the funniest name for an album I’ve ever heard.4. Detox/Carter III? I’ll believe it when I see it…
