I've finally taken the time to go through my collection and see what the top tunes of 2009 are IMHO. It took some google searches to ensure that the albums were all this year - but alas I have a great list here to share. I'm sure that I am missing a few - but for now these are the one's that acted as a soundtrack to my year and thus becoming 'My Top Tunes of 2009'.
