Prediction: Top 20 Of '09

This is how its probably gonna go down, but rec stuff.
Hymn To The Immortal Wind

Obviously. If this isn't in your top 20 then you obviously didn't listen close enough, *cough*Caleb*cough*.
2 Do Make Say Think
Other Truths

I just listened to the second time and now I'm thinking I see a classic coming along.
3 Brand New

I'm not exactly expecting them to pull another classic out of their ass but anything lower than 3rd spot will be a slight disappointment, I'm looking at you As Cities Burn.I listened to Do the first time and got what I was expecting; a song that was obviously great.
4Jonsi and Alex
Riceboy Sleeps

A minimalist masterpiece, but apparently I'm in the minority.
5 Converge
Axe To Fall

Dark Horse kicks so much ass.
6The Antlers

The concept is poweful, lyrically devasting and catchy as eff. Everything about this is gorgeuos.
7As Cities Burn
Hell Or High Water

Come Now Sleep was a life changing album, this is obviously not. But what it is, is one of my favorite records of the year.
8Tiny Vipers
Life on Earth

Its kind of like if Soap And Skin and Sleepingdog had a baby, and the Great Lake Swimmers and Glissando had a baby and those two babies fucked. That would be Life On Earth.
Flowers and Fireworks

Well I acually haven't heard this yet but I assume it's just that awesome. Since My comps being retarded, I'll probably just order it here. The split with Mesa Verde chould be mind blowing.
10Great Lake Swimmers
Lost Channels

Why have no one listened to this yet? It's incredible!
No More Stories

The only reason I've given it a 4 is because I haven't had it for long and it seems like the kind of thing that would bore me from like a week from now but yah this is sooo good. I know I heard a version of Comforting Sounds thats with guitar and not synth and fell inlove but the vocals always turned me off to their other material until I gave this a chance. I'm so glad I did so far.
Never Better

The "omg an acual good rap record" feeling kind of died down but this is still an amazing release.
13Soap and Skin
Lovetune for Vacuum

Thanks Balls.
Mama, I'm Swollen

The first Cursive I acually really enjoyed. And I enjoy this alot.
15Manchester Orchestra
Mean Everything To Nothing

The Only One and Shake It Off are such awesome tunes.
16Sights And Sounds

Devin Townsend produced it, now go listen to it.

Because we've all cranked Young Hearts Spark Fires and Wet Hair at some point.
18Wolves In the Throne Room
Black Cascade

Not Two Hunters good but still fricken mind blowing.
Wooden Bones

See 10. Just not as incredible.
Full Circle

I also have not heard this but I'm pretty sure it rocks out with its cock out. Probably will order this.
Wilco (The Album)

Because every record needs alittle Wilco.
