9 Close To Best Albums Of '09

Applaud or disagree with me.
1La Roux
La Roux


Another redhead that has released a debut this year. La Roux releases a rather synth laden tracks, which adds to the dancey nature of La Roux's vocals. Some songs are a bit inspid which is the only detraction from a rather solid debut.
2Brand New
Daisy


Oi! Thats my dogs name! My first taste of Brand New and sure was a good one. I always was waiting for them to explode into a cacophony of sound but they held it back. Add to this intelligent lyrics like 'You tried to put the fire out but you used gasoline', it makes a very fulfilling album. Will check out The Devil and God.... next
3Silversun Pickups
Swoon


Just like Brand New this is my first taste into Silversun Pickups. This is an album where I bought it a bit too late into the year to fully recognise how great it really is. 'It's nice to know you work alone' should have been at the end of season 3 of Dexter.
4 Lily Allen
It's not me, it's you


A fun pop album. It did grow off me. There are just a bit too many sexual innuendo's in the lyrics.
5Muse
The Resistance


My first album of Muse that I have bought. More to see why everyone hates on it. While its not great, its not that bad. I have listened to most of Absolution/Origin, the Resistance doesn't show a great deal of progression, it does have some fun tunes from time to time.
6Karnivool
Sound Awake


I love Themata, its aggressive and emotional. Sound Awake seems to be rather restraint and lacking the something that made Themata so great. It is a bit too soft which what Birds is there for.
7Oh Mercy
Privileged Woes
