10.08.10 Some Albums That I, Or Sputnik, Have Ig10.14.09 Strizzmatik's Top 20 Of 2009 (so Far)

Some Albums That I, Or Sputnik, Have Ignored And Suck Eternally In Doing So

These are albums that have either been ignored/undiscovered by myself or sputnik, or in some cases criminally overlooked in general on Best Of lists for whatever year they came out in and upon listening, will at some point facepalm in light of our ignorance. And yes, some are albums I like that sputnik should be listening to because well, I'm usually right about things like this.
1Tyler The Creator

It's the best fucking rap album I've heard in years. Makes the sad attempts by the current middle-age "gangsters" look weak and prove that Gen Y is in good hands without a doubt. If you could consider Odd Future the disturbed little brother to the Wu-Tang Clan, Tyler is most definitely their RZA and the guy to watch out for. Bastard is an album any veteran wished they could write, with the most fucked-up emotionally-charged lyrics since MMLP, better beats than 95% of the established producers around, a flow that brings to mind MF Doom, Lil' B and early Eminem, and still the hip-hop album to beat of 2010 as far as I'm concerned. And he's fucking 19. Swag.
2 Candiria
Kiss The Lie

Remember Tool's 10,000 Days and how it sucked? What if it didn't suck? Then you'd have this album. This is more like 50,000 Days at least, with the extra 40,000 being AWESOME days.
3Whole Wheat Bread
Hearts Of Hoodlums

An album that everyone should honestly kick themselves in the ass for not knowing about it when doing 2009's Best Of list (and it came out JANUARY). One of the finest punk/rap/pop/r&b/reggae/acoustic/thrash albums I've heard wait what?

Probably Prince's best album overall since Musicology.
5 Bad Astronaut
Whole discography

I know some people know of them, but this band was the definition of "criminally neglected" in general. Houston We Have A Drinking Problem and Twelve Steps are legitimately two of the very best albums of the last decade hands-down.
6 Depeche Mode
Whole discography

Seriously, the fact that a band as influential in the development of modern techno/ambient/trance/electronic/industrial/alternative/metal/rock music gets so little notice in general is a little weird. Their last two albums in particular have been great return-to-forms with pretty heavy critical acclaim.
7Domo Genesis
Rolling Papers

One of the best produced, catchiest hip-hop records of the year while being the best smoke sesh album this year without a doubt. "Supermarket" is full of EPIC win on every level.
The Trouble With Angels

The best modern rock album of 2010. Yes, it's better than Alter Creed.
9 Revolutions Per Minute
Reflection Eternal

Talib Kweli and DJ Hi-Tek. FuckingDUH.
10 The OneUps
Super Mario Kart

Classical guitar renditions of the themes from Super Mario Kart on SNES. If that doesn't immediately sound like the greatest thing ever, go kill yourself its not like you have a soul
