THE BEST OF 2009.... Who did we rate? 
Top 50 album that came the way of team Organ in 2009, here, after a day of debates, are our favourite fifty of another inspiring year of music. New York's Extra Life win, it did come ot this year in Europe, ahead of a magic set of live dates, close run thing betwee nthose top four though and so good to hear Peter Hammill making albums that are as good as he ever has. bit thin on the metal frontthis year, been some good metal albums but good isn't enough to make the 50.... Enough of list, this is the 1st Jan, start of a new decade, on with the new...
