Perhaps inspired by the fact that we're in the process of putting together our annual year-end lists and thus reflecting on our favorite releases from the past twelve months, we've been going through all the albums we reviewed in 2009 in an effort to stir our memories just in case a worthy release or two happened to slip our minds -- not much of a stretch, considering our fading, unreliable memories and given the sheer number of discs released this year.

Anyhow, we thought we might as well put our time to good use, and so we created a compendium of sorts for you, like we did with our features and Rough Mixes, to give you a chance to catch up on any releases you might've missed or forgotten about. After the jump, you'll find a link to every album reviewed in 2009 (nearly 200 in all), organized alphabetically -- because doing it chronologically just seemed tedious and, well, didn't make much sense.
