MUSIC 2008

I have decided to refrain from listing my picks for the 20 best (by which I mean my favorite) albums of 2008 in any order. They don't necessarily compare via style or substance but tin that each is their own unique achievement or grandiose return to form (in one case)  so here are 20 records you should own... now!

Side note : for me there is one clear record, that belonging to Martha Wainwright, who deserve best album title of the year : I know You're Married, But I have Feelings Too. 

Also Cat Power- Jukebox should be on the list but is not because its all covers, but it is one of the best records this year.

I'm having trouble narrowing my best of 2008 down to a winner. maybe i'll just make it a 3 way tie.
