Welcome to the 3rd Annual Golden Asterisks Awards Thread!

2009 GWJ Album of the Year Nominations
This year, I'm doing things a little differently. Rather than make one humongous post, I'm going to do individual posts on albums, one every day or two, until I run out of albums.
Also, I'm embedding YouTube vids into the posts where possible, to make it easier to sample the music.
Note: Because of the GWJ site's continued refusal to embed YouTube videos with underscores and hyphens in the ID, sometimes I have to pick videos other than the obvious choice - like "mash-up" videos with the song and some unrelated video sequence - in order to embed that song into the post.
My hope is that this will generate a neat thread of music to sample, and a conversation that goes with it, rather than one giant impenetrable post. Although it's quite likely that no one cares. I accept this.
I'll edit this post each time to show the running list of winners.
