09 Digs

Nearly at the end of 2009 and there's still about 80 albums for me to check out so the definitive 'best of' list will appear late-jan/early-feb. This is a list of my recent faves from this year
1Rome
Flowers From Exile


4.0 - Neofolk from Luxembourg. Absolutely amazing album, and among the best of the year. Sure to be on my best-of list
2Fall of Efrafa
Inle


4.0 - Sludge Metal/Post-Rock/Doom Metal from UK. The production is pretty poor but this is really solid. Some of the best post-rock passages and smile-cracking sludge...
3Riger
Streyf


3.5 - Viking Metal/Black Metal from Germany. At last, some terrific viking metal which this year has been lacking. I'm one of two to have rated this, so get on board...
4Lost Soul
Immerse in Infinity


3.5 - Death Metal from Poland. This country > yours. Also, losing the war means these guys make very nasty death metal which rules, go poland, you da best....
5Do Make Say Think
Other Truths


3.5 - Post-Rock from Canada. Believe the hype this is very professionally executed post-rock which has no boring moments.
6The xx
xx


3.5 - Dream Pop/Indie Pop/Electronic from UK. Pitchfork is good...
7Caspian
Tertia


3.5 - Post-Rock from USA. This has an average of 3.5 but it should be higher than that..I know I rated it exactly 3.5 but my ratings are always on average .5-1 star lower than most other people, so listen to this album and rate it highly, because it's awesome...
8Mumakil
Behold the Failure


3.5 - Deathgrind from Switzerland.
9Mount Eerie
Wind's Poem


3.5 - Singer/Songwriter/Contemporary Folk/Lo-fi from USA.
10Portugal. The Man
The Satanic Satanist


3.5 - Indie Rock from USA.
11Sacrifice
The Ones I Condemn


3.5 - Thrash Metal from Canada.
12Powerwolf
Bible of the Beast


3.5 - Power Metal from Germany. This is pretty heavy as far as PM goes. Very good release and I am (suprisingly) the only one to have rated it so far...
13And So I Watch You From Afar
And So I Watch You From Afar


3.5 - Post-Rock from UK.
14Rodrigo y Gabriela
11:11


3.5 - Flamenco/Acoustic Rock/Latin from Mexico. This album is grossly overrated but it is very solid and worth a few good listens.
