|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|
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.
|4||Jonsi and Alex |
A minimalist masterpiece, but apparently I'm in the minority.
Axe To Fall
Dark Horse kicks so much ass.
The concept is poweful, lyrically devasting and catchy as eff. Everything about this is gorgeuos.
|7||As 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.
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.
|10||Great Lake Swimmers|
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.
The "omg an acual good rap record" feeling kind of died down but this is still an amazing release.
|13||Soap and Skin|
Lovetune for Vacuum
Mama, I'm Swollen
The first Cursive I acually really enjoyed. And I enjoy this alot.
Mean Everything To Nothing
The Only One and Shake It Off are such awesome tunes.
|16||Sights 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.
|18||Wolves In the Throne Room|
Not Two Hunters good but still fricken mind blowing.
See 10. Just not as incredible.
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.
