2008: Top 25 Album Covers of 2008
Amneziak returns for this year’s top 25 album covers

After having only contributed to last year's top album covers, I had an especially great time returning to the task in full force this year. And now, after all the hours spent online, sifting through all the artwork that would eventually become this list, my journey has finally come to an end. Interestingly, roughly 85% of the covers depict either an animal or human figure, and only one of the covers in the top 10 (Music for Spaceships and Forests) doesn't contain either. Still, there is a lot of variety here, so I hope you enjoy the final list.

Of course, as soon as this list is published, I'm sure I will have found another worthy cover to add to this list. But that's hardly something to complain about.
