A Belated Best of 2009 List

Well, I am a bit late with this. I had really hoped to take care of this in January or February, but grading papers and raising children always gets in the way of a fun time.

Here is my list of albums that I purchased in 2009 that I really enjoyed. If you disagree, feel free to send me a 100% legal copy of the album(s) that I missed. I would be more than happy to listen and add to the list, provided your taste in music does not suck and the album is as good as the ones listed below.

So here we go. In no particular order.
