LOOKING BACK - Albert's list, best albums of 2000-2009

by Albert Rodriguez - SGN A&E Writer

Bidding adieu to 2009 also means kissing an entire decade goodbye. In my almost 10 years at Seattle Gay News, I've spent countless hours listening to CDs and digital downloads, and I'm beyond amazed and satisfied by the quality of music put out between January 2000 through December 2009. Given the difficult task of compiling the finest albums of the past 10 years, here are 50 that stood out from the thousands - take note, some of these recordings didn't even appear in my yearly top-10 lists, but like a good bottle of wine, an album can mature with age and improve in taste the longer it stays around. Many of these albums may already reside in your CD collection or MP3 player, but if not, you've got some catching up to do.
