Some '09 Goodness.

Some awesome '09 releases and other good stuff I got this year.
1The Faceless
Planetary Duality


Wow. I'm surprised how complete this album is, very solid.
2Young Widows
Old Wounds


Can't believe I passed up on this for as long as I have. Extremely underrated album.
3Intronaut
Prehistoricisms


Again, can't believe I've been missing out on this. Fucking phenomenal.
4 Goes Cube
Another Day Has Passed


Nothing quite like this, they do a little bit of everything. Metal, alt-rock, post-punk, etc.
5Iron Age
The Sleeping Eye


Thrash-doom? I didn't think it was possible either. Also some pretty rad solos on this album.
6Isis
Wavering Radiant


They seem to move things along a little quicker on this album, which is a plus for me.
7The Number 12 Looks Like You
Worse Than Alone


On par with their previous releases despite only having a single guitar attack. "Out there," catchy, and powerful simultaneously.
8Poison the Well
The Tropic Rot


These guys are like fine wine - always getting better with time. I loved the density and sheer experimentation of Versions, the range of YCBY, and the rawness of Tear from the Red. The Tropic Rot takes the best qualities of all and weaves them into a more stripped-down sound.
9Sonic Youth
The Eternal


Has an earlier Sonic Youth feel, very rockin'. Vocal interplay between Moore and Gordon seems more active. Impossible to stop after starting, it flows perfectly.
10Born of Osiris
A Higher Place


Not as bad as everyone makes this out to be. This would be perfect for anyone getting into the genre, as it offers listeners just about everything (except good vocals).
