At the close of a year, it's natural to look back. This feature gives those of our writers so inclined an opportunity to consider their many encounters with hardware and music throughout 2008 and pick up to five components and 10 recordings to highlight in a retrospective page or two. Click on the writers below to access each chapter. That will close at the end by following the close window prompt to automatically return you to this nav bar for the next page.
