The GNC Top 25 of 2008

It's been a wonderful year for music here at Grand National Championships. We've compiled a list of the recordings that have made the biggest impact on us in the last solar cycle. Please bear in mind, some of these selections represent the entire album from which they were culled. In other cases, single outstanding tracks earned their way on alone.

Anyways, here they are:

24 Born Ruffians - I Need a Life (Four Tet remix)
23 Tobacco - Hairy Candy
