If you’re looking to spend some Christmas money, you might want to check out the top 50 albums of 2008 for $5 each on Amazon. I really couldn’t recommend anything on the list because I’m musically inept. But Tim has a nice list of top albums for 2008, including a list of other top lists.
While I really like the iTunes store, I think Amazon is returning music to the realm of the impulse buy. For more impulse goodness, check out Amazon on Twitter for daily deals.
