Best albums... Hmm, I haven't been keeping in touch with the modern scene, so I'll just name these two albums:

Octaherdon by the Mars Volta

22062413f8aa9.th.jpg

and

The Incident by Porcupine Tree

porcupinetreetheinciden.th.jpg

...oh, and also Crack the Skye by Mastodon, although I don't consider it their best album.

I looked through my 09 music again. It's the least amount of music from a year that i've added since 2005. Nothing really stood out.

I'm just checking out a few that are supposed to be good, Girls, The xx, Phoenix, Animal Collective. nothing really stands out yet. Even Arctic Monkeys was a letdown. Josh Homme kinda ruined them imo. And I love him more than anyone.

I guess the best of 2009 for me was The Beatles Remasters and The remaster of Paul's Boutique. :laugh:

04) Caspian – Tertia *

05) pg.lost – In Never Out *

08) Ghost Brigade – Isolation Songs *

09) Insomnium – Across The Dark *

10) Heaven & Hell – The Devil You Know

Exxasens – Beyond The Universe *

Muse – The Resistance (I think about degrading this one for it's the worst Muse release since Hullabaloo)

Isis – Wavering Radiant *

Celeste – Misanthrope(s) *

Neaera – Omnicide

Swallow The Sun – New Moon *

Solstafír – Köld *

Katatonia – Night Is The New Day

of course this list is incomplete even though it was meant to be just a top 10. :blink:
