While looking at many Best Albums Of 2009 lists, I noticed deserving albums that received some minor attention and
other worthy albums that had no recognition at all.  Below is a general collection of 60 albums that I think are worth
mention. Although this list excludes some of  my personal favorite albums from 2009, this is a list of albums that could
have or might be included with some of my most liked albums of 2009. The albums are listed in no particular order.

Drive carefully. Watch for slush and black ice.  

Plato, "Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and charm and
gaiety to life and to everything." "Music and rhythm find their way into the secret places of the soul."

Friedrich Nietzsche, "Without music, life would be an error."  "In music the passions enjoy themselves."

Confucius, "Music produces a kind of pleasure which human nature cannot do without."

Berthold Auerbach, "Music washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life."

Maya Angelou, "Music was my refuge. I could crawl into the space between the notes and curl my back to loneliness."

Ralph Waldo Emerson, "I think sometimes could I only have music on my own terms, could I live in a great city, and
know where I could go whenever I wished the ablution and inundation of musical waves, that were a bath and a medicine."
