    The X-Ray Top 50 for 2009  View Printable Version 
    Wednesday, January 27 2010 @ 06:38 AM CST
    Contributed by: Dave

    Sorry for the delay, but I'm supposed to be on vacation & relaxing. haha. Same as always these should be viewed as in no particular order. Minutes, days, weeks after I post this I realize I've missed something great, but here it goes anyway. I hope you find it to be of interest. This list does not represent what was popular in terms of sales at X-Ray (even though many were), simply what I listened to a lot in 2009. Comments welcome & I'd be happy to see your list if you made one.

    My Favourite 50 of 2007  View Printable Version 
    Friday, January 04 2008 @ 10:35 AM CST
    Contributed by: Dave

    Here's a list of my top 50 albums that were released this year (in no particular order). It's based solely on what I was listening to & enjoying, and nothing to do with sales here at the store. Of course there were plenty of detours through other decades along the way, but you get my drift. As always, I'll remember something that should've been included weeks from now, but for the time being, this is how it stands.
