I do have a short list of albums I didn't get around to buying or listening to in 2008. Hopefully, I'll get them with my gift certificates :) Here's that list.
Girl Talk - "Feed the Animals"
I somehow still haven't gotten this, despite being able to pay what you want for it.
Hold Steady - "Stay Positive"
The songs I heard on the radio from this album sounded interesting and not annoying like every other Hold Steady song I've heard.
Portishead - "Third"
I swear I have picked up this album 10x at the store and put it back every time. I love Portishead and don't know why I didn't get it!
I also wanted the new Sigur Ros album, but I'm too lazy to look for a picture of it (or the album's name...)
