Music For The Film Behind Closed Eyelids

The first installment of Headphone Commute’s Best of 2009 begins with Music For The Film Behind Closed Eyelids. This is a playlist of my favorite albums of the year, consisting of music that simply makes you feel. This is music that moves you from reality into daydreams then into nightmares and back into reality. The albums in this category should be classified as the soundtracks to your life. No other genres are required.
