BEST OF 2009

2009

As the decade comes to a close, it ends with quite a bang. 2009 was an exceptional year for music, from the biggest bands to the smallest bands. I loved making this list because it brought me back to each album, and the reasons why I absolutely loved it. Hopefully a few of these made you happy, and maybe you’ll find some you missed. On a side note, this will indefinitely be my last post for the next week or so. I have finals this entire week that I have to focus on, and then important family stuff. Nonetheless, enjoy the best of 2009!
