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 our favorite pop/rock reissues of 2008. (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.)
