12.26.09 Year In Reviews

Year In Reviews

So here are some reviews from '09 that stuck out in my head for one reason or another. I'm sure theres a lot more, but this is all I could think of at the moment. What are some of your favorite 09 reviews?
1Do Make Say Think
Other Truths Author: Alex Silveri One of my favorite writers on the site reviewing one of the best post rock albums of the year. Beautifully written and an all around great review.
2Make Me
Make Me Author: John Hanson A concept review of a demo album no one has ever heard of. Genius.
Morningrise Author: sba4life I can't read a word of this review, but 27 pos' tell it all.
Viva La Vida Author: Caleb McAlpine Mr. Waior's 50th review (I think) and he gave a Coldplay album a 5 (zomgz wtf!), but a nice personal review made for a great one.
5Minus The Bear
Into the Mirror EP Author: Chambered89 His first and only review came out quite nice, and for a single to one of my most anticipated albums of 2010.
6The Fall of Troy
In the Unlikely Event Author: Cirq Cirq's burst onto the review scene brings the lulz.
Blood Mountain Author: Progmaster85 YES A MASTODON GUITAR SOLO
8Circle Takes the Square
As The Roots Undo Author: JohnnyGetYerKnife Experimental Chaotic Screamo
Petitioning the Empty Sky Author: fireaboveicebelow I don't no where this guy went, but he wrote a string of 2.5 reviews for popular sputnik bands/albums. This one obviously hit me the most as it's my favorite Converge album. I guess this took some balls because he grabbed a shitton of negs, but funny nonetheless.
Wrestling Moves

:// Author: Me Yeah I put my own review on my own 'Favorite reviews' list, big whoop wanna fight about it? But seriously, I was checking out Native's myspace and saw my review quoted not once, but twice and was very proud of my little review. Probably one of my favorite Sputnik moments of this year.
11The Beatles
Rubber Soul Author: Druglesshippie Okay so this review isn't on the site anymore (nor is the user as far as I know), but it contains my single favorite opening sentence in any review ever, and I'm sure some of you remember it. "So people are always asking me why The Beatles started making Metal." I lol'd for days.
