Opinions On My Top 10 Of 09

It was a weird year for me musically. I had such high expectations for certain albums (cough: Alexisonfire) and they disappointed me somewhat, and yet others came out of nowhere to be my favourites. I also discovered a LOT of older music, and as such, here is my top 10 songs of 09. Feel free to rate, make suggestions, rec etc...thanks!
1 Thrice
In Exile

This is a personal one, as it applies perfectly to my situation at the moment
(having moved to a new boarding school in a new continent by myself and
not feeling at home) and it just gets me every time...especially the ending.
2 P.O.S.

Re-introduced me to hip-hop...and not the mainstream stuff. Super
intelligent lyrics, great production, awesome drums...perfect.
3 RX Bandits
My Lonesome Only Friend

Never heard these guys before this year, and I regret that. They are so
brilliant, technically perfect and with a lot of soul..
4 Fightstar
War Machine

Epic is the only word that can describe this song.
5 Gallows
London is the Reason

The whole concept of this album is brilliant, and this album harks back to
the classic hardcore and metal of the 80's without sounding dated.
6 Q Tip

Kamaal the Abstract is not a hip hpp album. It's a jazz album with a splash
of hip-hop, and that works amazingly well...I know this was supposed to be
released years ago, but I am glad it was released now so that I can fully
comprehend it.
7 Dance Gavin Dance

This one snuck up on me. I expected this to be terrible and
Alesana, and I hear it and it blows my mind. The instrumentation is
ridiculous, and it all just works.
8 Alexisonfire
The Northern

It had to be in much as their album lowered my hopes, I still love
their music, and this song is promising for future albums. If the whole
record was like this, it would have been a 5!
9 Closure in Moscow

Again, had no idea about this band, and they became my highest played
artists. Listen to the opening 5 seconds of this song, and tell me that it's
not awesome.
10 Invasion
Conjure War

Just search it on Youtube. Soul-metal. 'Nuff said.
