1st Annual Awards Psychic Music Awards: Nominees

This year, I have decided that instead of just listing my top albums of the year, I would do my own version of awards for the best music of the year. In this case, I am going to stick with the Grammy's eligibility period, although I still think that by the time the Grammys actually roll around in February, are sadly behind the times.
