On this blog (for a reason none other than indecisiveness) I've made it a tradition to list my top fifteen records of the year (2007 is here, 2008 here and 2009 here) instead of a more typical top ten. I also don't say anything about why I've selected them (at least at first). Deal with it.
For more words on why I chose the top ten of these fifteen, stay tuned. Also, keep on the lookout for some Pazz & Jop action in January.
