Top Ten Best Records of 2009

January 7th, 2010 8:00am EST
Isis
2009 saw the release of a number of great records, but it wasn't that hard to nail down a solid list of the ten best. The year saw a number of musical comebacks as well, none more awe-inspiring and utterly impressive than Alice in Chains. Coincidentally their latest release and first since the death of Layne Staley, Black Gives Way to Blue, tops this very list as my album of the year, although my best album of the year choice changed a handful of times as 2009 progressed.

At one point in time my album of the year was the Prodigy's Invaders Must Die, then that quickly changed once Julien...
