Your top 10 albums of 2009 (1 Viewer)

Ambreen

Sordide Sentimental
I am too haunted by some dead bands to listen to a lot of current ones. Good 2009 albums which come to my mind are :

A woman a man walked by, PJ Harvey
À tout moment, Eiffel
Backspacer, Pearl Jam
A-Lex, Sepultura

And before even having tested it : IRM, Charlotte Gainsbourg. I know I'll like it since I like everything she does. Except that all the songs are duos with Beck. : pukingsmiley :

Note that I have not included The resistance in my list. I am improving !

IRM, Charlotte Gainsbourg. I know I'll like it since I like everything she does. !

Including the song Lemon Incest where she is rolling around in her panties in a bed with her dad? The video for that song disturbs me greatly. Maybe if I spoke French, it would not disturb me as much. Maybe it is about puppies and going to a ballet recital.

They're not out yet :cool:. Seriously, there were some rather good albums that came out in 2009, but too few great albums to make a top ten for me.

I found that album she did with Jarvis Cocker et all a bit dull. Couple of good tracks, but just a bit breathy and monotonous overall. However, I do think she is a sexy lady (especially in 'The Science of Sleep').

This year I liked Bill Callahan's return to being miserable!

Guys, I'm asking for YOUR top 10 of 2009, not just a few albums.
Take your time, flip through your music collection. Ponder about it!

I don't really listen to new music unless its given to me. I don't like to pay the excessively high prices for CDs, so... Mostly I just listen to XM and the CDs I collected through college.

Well, shit....

My speed-reading skills fail me again, as I thought this was a spin-off from Hooch's NME thread. BUT WAIT ! This could give a moderator true purpose and meaning to their life if they spun my posting into a separate thread for "Your Best Of 2000-2009".... just sayin'

XMU is almost nothing but new music. You should spend some time there.
 
I tried to come up with 5, but of course I failed. I really enjoy these, so I can offer a top 3:

Voivod - Infini
The Dillinger Escape Plan - Ire Works
Trap Them - Seizures In Barren Praise

5. Girls-Album.jpg

Indie hipsters lately have been smitten with the Beach Boys. This band is no different, but I don't hold that against them.

Song I like:

2. micachu_jewellery.jpg

Micachu and the Shapes - Jewellery

Punk and hip-hop by a 20-something prodigy who makes her own instruments, even though she looks like a 13 year old boy that spends most of his time at the skate park and is considering becoming a vegetarian. But that just makes her more awesome.

Song I like:
1. the_flaming_lips_embryonic.jpg

the Flaming Lips - Embryonic

Veteran hippy punk tripsters change direction. Again.

Song I like:
 
Nice list, Hooch. The XX just missed my list. Girls was close too. Only heard a couple songs from Embyonic. It's all really that good?

I know what you mean, it's different than what you would normally expect from Iggy Pop, so that's why it may be disappointing to loyal fans. I'm not one of them, so maybe that's why I liked it so much. I think the whole vibe of the album, its jazzy feel, suits him perfectly. And me too. Iggy said somewhere that this book was the inspiration of the album. I just bought the Romanian translation, but didn't get to read it yet. Maybe it holds some answers about the way this album was conceived.

Yeh, I bought it because I buy everything Iggy does...But after about 4 listens I just put it away. Then I tried again 2months later and felt the same way about it. Don't know if I'll give it another chance, I'm sure I will at some point.
