List Mania

I cannot believe that 2009 is almost over. This has got to be one of the fastest moving years of my life. Anyway, as 2010 approaches, I am preparing to make my year end list of favorite records. I tend to alternate the number of albums on the list every year, but this year is looking like it will be a Top 25. I don't know exactly how many new albums came out this year (although I'm sure it is an outrageously high number), but my list will be based on the 98 albums I acquired over the course of the year, all of which are listed below in alphabetical order:
