Honorable mentions are always very welcome, I will check these albums out because I haven't heard any of them.

Keeping just to what is in the PA database, and removing any albums which feature in your poll, what’s left on my iPod from 2008 (in alphabetical order) is:

(NB it’s perhaps not the most reliable or accurate of methods, but what’s on my iPod from years past are likely to be my favourites from that year, simply because I can fit everything in there. Also, it’s assuming all the years are correctly entered in the metadata.)

Afenginn 
Amaseffer
Anathema
Anima Mundi
Il Bacio della Medusa
Cast
Causa Sui
Combination Head
Dark Suns
D.F.A.
Diagonal
Disen Gage
Elephant9
Guapo
Höstsonaten
Ihsahn
Jardin de la Croix
Lunatic Soul
Medeski Martin & Wood
My Sleeping Karma
Nine Inch Nails
No-Man
Nosound 
Ph.Lost
RC2
Retrospective
Simon Says
Universal Totem Orchestra
Votum

The obvious choice of Steven Wilson for me. His first 3 albums are all masterpieces imo.

Moon Safari. Beautiful album.

I'm surprised 'Watershed' has just 2 votes so far. It's one of the really exciting Opeth albums.

Blomljud, it's just so beautiful....

But, where is The Tall Ships by It Bites? Fabulous album from a band who hadn't released one in nearly 20 years. Would be a struggle to pick between these 2....
