|Top 10 Albums Of 2009|
This was a very solid musical year for me.
|10||Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros|
Up From Below
I had a few that were really close. Honorable Mentions:
Miike Snow - Miike Snow,
El Perro Del Mar - Love Is Not Pop,
You Say Party We Say Die - XXXX,
|9||Kings Of Convenience|
Declaration of Dependence
Finally another King's album. So calming and good. Erlend Oye is quite possibly the artist of the decade.
|8||The Very Best|
Warm Heart Of Africa
Just liked it a lot. Feel good music.
Merriweather Post Pavilion
I picked everyone else's favorite too.
Good stuff. "Islands" is my favorite. The rest sounds like Chris Issak, which is a good thing.
This album had to grow on me, but it did. Its very deep, by which I mean it has a lot of great songs.
I couldn't give up "Deli" or "Seasun" for any other song on all the other albums on this entire list. Best dance tunes of the year.
Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix
The worst Phoenix album is still amazing. I remember seeing them at the Crocodile in Seattle with 200 people 2 years earlier then in Central Park with 3000. This was the year my favorite band finally made it big. Why'd it take so long?
|2||The Whitest Boy Alive|
So much better than the last Whitest Boy Alive album. Like I said, Erlend may be the artist of the decade. This is, quite specifically, the music that I really love. "Roller Coaster Ride", "Island" & "1517" are amazing.
Phrazes for the Young
He sings the things I feel. On top of that the music is amazing. I played this album over and over again, although I pretty much always skipped "River of Break Lights".
"Take all your fears, pretend they're all true. Take all your plans, pretend they fell though!"
