AllMusic Review by

Essential Hits '08 collects 20 tracks from 2008, many of which reflect the compilation's U.K. origins. There are more than a handful of international smashes here like Alicia Keys' "No One," MGMT's "Time to Pretend," and Britney Spears' "Womanizer," but the inclusion of cuts by British reality star-turned-pop songstress Leona Lewis, venerable British bad boys Oasis, and heavy metal string quartet Apocalyptica might perplex some American audiences.
