A Brief Possibility of my Favorite Albums of 2008(update)

So the year is winding down and magazines and such are making their year-end lists which got me thinking about what albums I have liked this year. Here is a list of albums in contention that I could remember with help from wikikipedia. They are in "qwerty" order (seriously) because I started off the narrowing process by typing letters into strereogum's "gummy" nomination page. Please let me know if you think there is anything I missed, by omission, or that I may not have given a chance.

Wale - A Mixtape About Nothing
Wolf Parade - At Mount Zoomer
Radiohead - In Rainbows
The Hold Steady - Stay Positive
The Game - L.A.X.
The Gaslight Anthem - '59 Sound
T.I. - Paper Trail
TV On the Radio - Dear Science
Islands - Arm's Way
Of Montreal - Skeletal Lamping
She & Him - Volume 1
Sun Kil Moon - April
Destroyer - Trouble in Dreams
Fleet Foxes - Fleet Foxes
Girl Talk - Feed the Animals
Guns N' Roses - Chinese Democracy
GZA - Pro Tools
Kanye West - 808's & Heartbreak
Land of Talk - Some Are Lakes
Lil Wayne - Tha Carter III
Conor Oberst - Conor Oberst
Vampire Weekend - Vampire Weekend
Back Milk - Tronic
Back Mountain - In the Future
N.E.R.D. - Seeing Sounds

And here are a few albums yet to come out that I don't want to knock out of contention:

EPMD - We Mean Business
Justice - A Cross the Universe

of the albums I listened to A Kid Named Cudi beats out Mixtape About Nothing as the best 10 Deep Collab mixtape, In Rainbows is the best rock album, C3 edges Tronic as the best rap album, and 808's and Heartbreak is the best of the Pop Art genre
