Top Music of 2009

Okay, I ran out of time and could not post a review to every CD I listened to this year. I have been keeping a running tab on all my top CD’s though and thought I would share. I will update again before the end of the year. Anything in the top ten is a winner and the whole top 25 is worth checking out. My taste may not be the same as yours, but I am sure you will find some nuggets in this list.
