The NYC photographer filled his year with black metal and Devin the Dude.

Who was the best artist of 2008?

For me it's a tie between Devin the Dude and TV on the Radio, both of whom continue to release classic albums.

Who was the worst music artist of 2008?

Soulja Boy, who I believe is responsible for dumbing down rap music to a whole new level. Trying to take on Ice-T was the final nail in his coffin.

What was the best album of 2008?

I am currently stuck between Watain's Sworn to the Dark and The Tallest Man on Earth's Shallow Graves. Two great albums for very different moods.

What was the worst style trend of 2008?

The return of the Slick Rick look, which is nowhere near as cool on these youngsters.
