The Top 10 Albums Of 2009, From 'World Cafe'

Long ago, I abandoned the pretense that my year-end Top 10 list held the weight of either objectivity or universality. There are critics and taste-makers who apply their scope of knowledge to a broad-based list that attempts to encompass the absolute best in every genre. Instead, I've learned to go with the music that moved me most.

At any given point in 2009, my Top 10 list would inevitably look different, so consider this a snapshot — and otherwise subject to change at any time. Some picks won't be new to most readers, but here's hoping you find something that might have passed you by otherwise.
