Best Album Covers of 2008

Best Album Covers of 2008
The BTR DJs pick their favorite album covers of 2008
November 26, 2008

Well, there is not much to explain here! The title and description of the feature says it all. But, just for the sake of clarity, these are some of our favorite album covers of 2008. Instead of compiling a massive list of favorites and then ranking them, we decided it would be better to show each BTR DJ’s individual pick instead. It keeps with one of our most important themes here at BTR, and that is that each  of our DJs controls their own playlist, with no oversight from anyone save themselves.

That said, if we did have to pick an overall winner, Of Montreal’s Skeletal Lamping would be the victor, because it’s the only one that made the list twice.

Check it!
