My Favourite Albums of 2008

It has really gotten so far into the next year that it’s about time I either forgot about bothering to mention my favourite albums of last year, or just got it out of the way. I really enjoyed the countdown episode I did last year, but honestly, making it was kind of a pain in the ass because of the work involved. Especially because in lists like this things are always changing all over the place. I know some commentary on these albums would be nice, but I just don’t have the time to bother getting into that and I’d just second guess my selections again, and I want to be done living in last year. If you are shocked, apalled or curious please leave a comment and I’ll explain myself. So here, unadorned, are my 20 favourite albums of 2008:

20. Gang Gang Dance – Saint Dymphna
19. Plants and Animals – Park Avenue
