I’ve been slacking like no other. I admit it. But, in my mind, as long as I eventually make up for it, I’m not doing a terrible job. Today, newcomer Dave Schneider gives us his Top 10 Albums of 2009. He’s also graciously provided everydaymusic with four other top 10 lists, so that’s pretty much what the next few weeks will be based around. All together now… Thank you, Dave!
A lot happened in the 2000s. This is a cultural/artistic review of the decade and the year 2009.
2009 was a particularly bad year for the arts but I put together lists anyway, often with numbers 10 through 4 being begrudging fillers. Some of these lists don’t have explanations because I either didn’t care enough to justify the list or I had already written an expanded list elsewhere.
Happy New Years, everyone! Onward to the 2010s! God bless!
