From the 8th through the 19th, the AllMusic Blog will be publishing our editors' favorite albums of 2008. We'll be covering well over a dozen genres and styles, from rap to reggae, R&B to electronic, country to Latin, blues to metal, folk to soundtracks, and several points in-between. Right now, on the AllMusic Blog, we take a look at M-Z of our favorite indie rock and pop albums of 2008, with A-L covered earlier in part one. (Be sure to check our overall feature of new albums, reissues, and classical releases, as well as our editors' individualized lists of favorite albums and songs.)
