My Favorite Music, Movies & Books of '09!

Albums
1. Nirvana, Live at Reading
2. Black Lips, 200 Million Thousand
3. Kiss, Sonic Boom
4. Sonic Youth, The Eternal
5. Reigning Sound, Love and Curses
6. Bruce Springsteen, Working on a Dream
7. Yeah Yeah Yeahs, It's Blitz!
8. Dead Weather, Horehound
9. The King Khan & BBQ Show, Invisible Girl
10. New York Dolls, 'Cause I Sez So
Notes: A live recording of a 17-year-old concert by a long-defunct band shouldn't even qualify for such a list, but I listened to Live at Reading far more than any other CD this year... The reissue of '09 is easily The Beatles Stereo Box Set.

Good lists. Hard to argue/dislike any picks.
