Hello everyone, and Merry Christmas! I have compiled (and it was startlingly easy) my top 20 albums of 2009 (if you know me, you know it'll be an R&B female-dominated affair as usual!). Unlike last year, when I listed 10 and did mini reviews, this time I've got 20 (since my shortlist came to 20 albums, I thought it would just be easier to rank 11-20, than pick out some for Honourable Mentions). No mini-reviews, or I would be here forever, and I think my blog posts are long enough without breaking the 5000 word barrier! So I've just put the best and worst tracks from each album with the album cover, and hopefully you'll be intrigued to download my favourite songs of 2009. And while you're at it, you can download my own album, Quiet Storm, here too! So without further ado...

She's consistently walked the fine line between critical and commercial success, effectively having her cake and eating it since 2002. Alicia Keys plays the piano like a professional, but is not an entertainer who hides behind her instrument - she takes risks, sings and dances on stage, and has always commanded respect with an element of political and social awareness to boot. …
