Waior & '09

good year for music, top 20 albums - argue, insult and agree.
1The Decemberists
The Hazards of Love


Fully encapsulating, what on earth is this album. Colin Meloy is a deity of sorts and you know it.
2 The Noah and the Whale
The First Days of Spring


No consanguineous respect for Noah and the Whale here... thankfully, this sounds nothing like '5 Years Time'. Amazing album.
3Silversun Pickups
Swoon


So dense. Denser than Ulcerate. How does that even work for an indie record?
4August Burns Red
Constellations


Manages to still be perhaps the catchiest thing I've heard this year.
5Between the Buried and Me
The Great Misdirect


Colors was a mess. A fun mess, albeit, but a mess. This is slightly more organized and therefore slightly better.
6 As Tall As Lions
You Can't Take It With You


The artwork never works on this one, I called it.
7Anchor & Braille
Felt


Stephen Christian minus Anberlin is better than I'd hoped (and I had high hopes).
8As Cities Burn
Hell or High Water


Made Too Pretty is still fantastic.
9Miike Snow
Miike Snow


klap4musik - with condolences to the lost k
10Isis
Wavering Radiant


Welcome to post-metal.
11Imogen Heap
Ellipse


It's too bad you look so damn ridiculous in your covers, Imogen.
12Closure in Moscow
First Temple


Poppy The Mars Volta is better than the Mars Volta in 2009. Don't get me wrong, Octahedron is probably #21 on my top 20.
13City of Ships
Look What God Did To Us


HEY BRENT HOW ABOUT A REVIEW, HEY ADAM THANKS A LOT FOR THIS, HEY SPUTNIK LISTEN TO THIS
14Ulcerate
Everything Is Fire


oomphh
15Thrice
Beggars


Just because it's Thrice.
16St. Vincent
Actor


robinsmithrobinsmithrobinsmith
17Regina Spektor
Far


And we made our own computer out of macaroni pieces
18The Red Chord
Fed Through the Teeth Machine


go figure
19Converge
Axe to Fall


Hey look, it's not #1, what do you know.
20Do Make Say Think
Other Truths


mmmm.
