|Opinions On My Top 10 Of 09|
It was a weird year for me musically. I had such high expectations
for certain albums (cough: Alexisonfire) and they disappointed me
somewhat, and yet others came out of nowhere to be my favourites.
I also discovered a LOT of older music, and as such, here is my top
10 songs of 09. Feel free to rate, make suggestions, rec etc...thanks!
This is a personal one, as it applies perfectly to my situation at the moment
(having moved to a new boarding school in a new continent by myself and
not feeling at home) and it just gets me every time...especially the ending.
Re-introduced me to hip-hop...and not the mainstream stuff. Super
intelligent lyrics, great production, awesome drums...perfect.

My Lonesome Only Friend
Never heard these guys before this year, and I regret that. They are so
brilliant, technically perfect and with a lot of soul..
Epic is the only word that can describe this song.
London is the Reason
The whole concept of this album is brilliant, and this album harks back to
the classic hardcore and metal of the 80's without sounding dated.

Kamaal the Abstract is not a hip hpp album. It's a jazz album with a splash
of hip-hop, and that works amazingly well...I know this was supposed to be
released years ago, but I am glad it was released now so that I can fully

This one snuck up on me. I expected this to be terrible and generic...like
Alesana, and I hear it and it blows my mind. The instrumentation is
ridiculous, and it all just works.
It had to be in here...as much as their album lowered my hopes, I still love
their music, and this song is promising for future albums. If the whole
record was like this, it would have been a 5!
|9|| ||Closure in Moscow|
Again, had no idea about this band, and they became my highest played
artists. Listen to the opening 5 seconds of this song, and tell me that it's
Just search it on Youtube. Soul-metal. 'Nuff said.
|Been a good year for music...|
|2 and 4 fuckin rule.|
|3 is awesome but I actually prefer Bled to Be Free from that album. |
|Circles is my favorite Thrice song off the new record. The Northern is a great song and I really enjoyed 'Old Crows, Young Cardinals'.|
|i thought Kamaal the Abstract was Q-Tip after listening to a lot of Prince.|
|Your list title kinda grabbed me. Better than seeing My 09 List.|
Closure in Moscow is pretty sick as is Rx bandits.
|Couldn't agree more about 9.|
|Redsky, I would disagree with you there...listen to the jams...it's definitely more jazzy, though i see where you are coming from with the Prince thing.. it is very funky.|
|By the way guys, I would really recommend checking out 10...they are excellent.|
