2009 is over. A new musical year has already started. However, the previous year left some albums that either surprised me and gain me directly or they grew inside me gradually and through time. So, I decided to prepare again a top-20 with these albums, as I was doing till 2007. This list is based on my own opinion and taste. It has also been influenced by the last year's statistics of Last.Fm, especially for albums that were fighting for the same position. So, feel free to comment on my choices or discover albums that you might have not noticed.
1. Blut aus Nord - Memoria Vetusta II: Dialogue With The Stars
2. Amesoeurs - Amesoeurs
3. Paradise Lost - Faith Divides Us - Death Unites Us
