It looks like the same 100 in their "CD" and "MP3" list, so nothing that wasn't available on only one format made it. It looked like a few positions were swapped (typos?) but this was pretty much the exact same list both times. I don't expect anyone to want to buy physical CDs from a referral link, so I've spared you the duplication - if I'm wrong, you probably know how to order a CD to get us the referral anyway. (Or at least I HOPE) Naturally, I DO see some releases missing that should be here...but that will have to be another thread. And probably well into next month. Amazon's Best Albums of 2009 1.

It seems they either went with the stereotypical hated bands (Bolten, Kenny G), easy targets for people of today (Vanilla), random 80's bands (Oingo), bands they know will piss people off (Doors), or music acts they dont like/understand (Primus). The W message board ZimBoard ©2001-2015 Brothers Zim
