Vince: The Best of 2009 - Albums and EPs + Track of the Year

Yes. It is that time of year again. Most of our weekend was devoted to Christmas parties and completing our Best of 2009, end-of-year lists. Happy holiday's everyone! To be honest, this list was a extremely easy to put together! Didn't take me long, there weren't many edits and or deletions -- it happened organically and I think that is due to the pure volume of quality music released this year.

Nice assortment. I respect the wide range of your picks. Hate it when folks ascribe to pleasing the masses. Well done.
