|Best Of 09|
Best album's i've heard all year, 1-12 albums that came out this year,
12-24 albums that I heard for the first time this year
|1|| ||Animal Collective|
Merriweather Post Pavillion
It's been said a million times but this record is fantastic, fuck anyone who
says this is "hipster bullshit"
I honestly prefer Spiderman of the Rings to this but this still ownsauce.
It's mediocre for an Isis record but a mediocre Isis record is still better then
95% of the music being produced today
Crack the Skye
I'm sure this list is already getting derivative but this album owns, don't
believe the naysayers.
In the Constellation of the Black Widow
Haven't given this a full proper listen yet but from what i've heard, this is
|6|| ||Various Artists|
Nigeria 70 - The Definitive Story of 1970's Funky Lagos
Easily one of the best compilation records i've heard in a long time, if you
have any interest in world music you NEED this.
Probably his most forgettable record to date but his rhymes are still as odd
and confounding as always.
You guys weren't entirely digging this but I still believe that they can do
doom rap like no one else......well except DOOM himself, but that's not
really what I meant.
Not the most memorable record but one of the funnest of the year.
I was pleasantly surprised by this, it's not perfect but it's far better then
the steaming pile of shit I was expecting.
Born Like This
Maybe not his definitive record but a solid release nonetheless.
|12|| ||The Field|
Yesterday & Today
Like a lot of the records posted previously, not as good as previous
releases but still great.
|13||Macho Man Randy Savage|
Be A Man
Easily one of the all time greats.
It took me awhile to get into DOOM but this record sealed the deal,
arguably one of the most well produced hip-hop albums in recent memory.
|15|| ||MF DOOM|
If Madvillainy got me into DOOM, Mm...Food solidified that fanfare.
Off the Wall
Like a lot of you when the king of pop died, I decided to give all of his old
albums a listen and although you may not agree with me, Off the Wall is
quite possibly his best......next to Thriller and Bad of course.
Mogwai Young Team
Although I haven't connected to this emotionally as much as I hoped, this is
still a memorable record.
I'm a nerd, I know :(
Another artist I wasn't into until I gave it another listen.
|20|| ||Nurse With Wound|
Homotopy to Marie
This record is fucked up in every way imaginable and that's why it's so
intriguing, not so enjoyable but well worth a listen.
I actually like this more then anything they've put out this point, I haven't
checked out City of Echoes yet but based on the reception, I doubt I will.
aka the soundtrack to my nightmares
