music Mojo's Best Albums of 2008

2.2k views 50 items Embed
The best albums of 2008 as chosen by Mojo magazine. Cover art and track listings for each of these top albums of 2008 are included. This Albums of the Year 2008 list is ranked with the best records at the top. Mojo magazine is just about the best authority for quality music in the world, and although their main focus is rock music, they also do other genres like jazz and world music. Still, as great as Mojo is, it's easy to see albums on their lists that haven't aged well, as well as great records that didn't make their list - but this is often the problem with year-end music lists, it takes time for good records to grow on you!
