Overload

Aaargh overload of 2009 music, it just gets more and more ridiculous, this is an d Albums of 2009 list.
1 2009
Best Albums
2Mono
Hymn To The Immortal Wind


Still essentially one of the most powerful and moving post-rock releases ever.
3fun.
Aim And Ignite


Can't hype this enough. Creative, quirky, happy, emotional pop music.
4Florence And The Machine
Lungs


Loving Drumming as the new single, album still fits together flawlessly.
5Thrice
Beggars


Softer and more deliberated without losing any of the intensity.
6Broken Records
Until The Earth Begins To Part


Massive, sweeping, orchestral Scottish indie-rock.
7As Cities Burn
Hell Or High Water


Just so pretty.
8Maybeshewill
Sing The Word Hope In Four-Part Harmony


Heavy-ish, political post-rock with momentum and pianos.
9Taking Back Sunday
New Again


More alt-rock, less pop-punk, better crafted, hooks galore, awesome.
10Frightened Rabbit
Quietly, Now


The Midnight Organ Fight loses none of its power in a stripped down live setting.
11Fightstar
Be Human


Post-hardcore with hooks and strings and Charlie Simpson.
12FACT
FACT


Totally fucking confusing, totally fucking good.
13Blue October
Approaching Normal


Real surprise, this has some brilliant alt-rock songs and relaxes me.
14Gavin Castleton
Home


I still can't get over the concept of recording a zombie film album about a breakup.
15Metric
Fantasies


Who'd you rather be, the Beatles or the Rolling Stones?
16The Thermals
Now We Can See


I have some difficulty telling their songs apart, but I enjoy everything they put out.
17Set Your Goals
This Will Be The Death Of Us


They sound kinda like blink at points, but this is great. Look Closer rules.
18Coldplay
Leftrightleftrightleft


Live albums are weird, but this is just awesome.
19We Were Promised Jetpacks
These Four Walls


Pretty great indie-rock from Scotland with a bit of experimentation thrown in.
20Thursday
Common Existence


Idk why this isn't higher it just hasn't clicked.
21Animal Collective
Merriweather Post Pavilion


zOMG 21 should be higher *whine whine whine*
22Placebo
