Top Albums of 2009: 21-30

December is the worst. I hate that it’s dark when I get to work and dark when I get home. I despise wearing socks. Digging my car out from its icy tomb makes me want to take hostages. And if Silent Night were a person I’d punch him in his glasses.

But there is one thing that makes me giddy for this time of year – top album lists! They’re such a great way to be a lazy researcher.. just let everyone else sift through the crap and present the gems. With that said, here’s some of what I was left with after my yearly sift. Starting at 30 and working backwards…

Also I’d love to hear what albums you were crazy for this year!
