Aaargh overload of 2009 music, it just gets more and more ridiculous, this is an d Albums of 2009 list.
Hymn To The Immortal Wind
Still essentially one of the most powerful and moving post-rock releases ever.
Aim And Ignite
Can't hype this enough. Creative, quirky, happy, emotional pop music.
|4||Florence And The Machine|
Loving Drumming as the new single, album still fits together flawlessly.
Softer and more deliberated without losing any of the intensity.
Until The Earth Begins To Part
Massive, sweeping, orchestral Scottish indie-rock.
|7||As Cities Burn|
Hell Or High Water
Just so pretty.
Sing The Word Hope In Four-Part Harmony
Heavy-ish, political post-rock with momentum and pianos.
|9||Taking Back Sunday|
More alt-rock, less pop-punk, better crafted, hooks galore, awesome.
The Midnight Organ Fight loses none of its power in a stripped down live setting.
Post-hardcore with hooks and strings and Charlie Simpson.
Totally fucking confusing, totally fucking good.
Real surprise, this has some brilliant alt-rock songs and relaxes me.
I still can't get over the concept of recording a zombie film album about a breakup.
Who'd you rather be, the Beatles or the Rolling Stones?
Now We Can See
I have some difficulty telling their songs apart, but I enjoy everything they put out.
|17||Set Your Goals|
This Will Be The Death Of Us
They sound kinda like blink at points, but this is great. Look Closer rules.
Live albums are weird, but this is just awesome.
|19||We Were Promised Jetpacks|
These Four Walls
Pretty great indie-rock from Scotland with a bit of experimentation thrown in.
Idk why this isn't higher it just hasn't clicked.
Merriweather Post Pavilion
zOMG 21 should be higher *whine whine whine*
Battle For The Sun
Disappointing; still gets spins.
The Best In Town
Read my comment in the album thread and find out why.
