Top 20 Albums of The First Quarter: WYDU & Poisonous Paragraph Style

by Travis on April 24, 2009

Top Twenty Albums of the First Quarter, 2009

The top twenty albums of the first quarter, for your viewing pleasure. Now remember, these are strictly legit (or mostly…I think) releases, all the EPs, Instrumental jammies, and mixtapes can be seen on yesterday’s post. If I added those to the mix, it would obviously change things up significantly. I also stuck pretty close to the April 1st deadline. Therefore, you probably won’t see a few albums (Diz Gibran’s “Soon You’ll Understand” is the one that jumps to mind immediately)

thanks goes out to El Gringo Colombino for his instigation of all of this….(He has two albums, Diamond District and Diz Gibran that probably would have been in the top 1o, if not top 5 on mine if I didn’t cut it off at April 1st)
