Top 5 Albums of 2009

Because I used to do this years ago on LiveJournal, and because well, why the hell not, I’m going to do a series of “top” lists for 2009!

Disclaimer: If one of these wasn’t actually released in 2009, then I’m so sorry.  But it’s my top 5 for the year, so there!

1.  Anjunabeats Volume 7.  I have developed an even deeper love of Trance music this year, most due  to Above & Beyond (and Alex).

2. Lady Gaga’s The Fame Monster. That woman has talent and vision, and goes for it balls-to-the-wall.  And I love her.  Seriously.

3. The Resistance by Muse.  I seriously enjoy listening to Muse.  While this album wasn’t by any means a “great stride” in their style, it was a really great album, and it’s just like Muse to keep your head bobbing through the whole thing.

4. A few weeks ago, I discovered Metric’s newest release, Fantasies, and immediately fell in love with this band.  I kept hearing the name EVERYWHERE, so I checked them out on youtube, and decided it was definitely worth $9.99 from itunes.  I hand-heart Metric now.

5. And here’s the album that wasn’t released this year, so don’t get your panties in a wad.  🙂  It’s actually pretty old, but I found myself listening to this nonstop this fall, and it really helped me through a lot of shit.  Death Cab for Cutie, your We Have the Facts and the Answer is Yes, even though it was released 5 or 6 years ago, was one of my top for 2009.  There is something about its sound that just helped take me away from my head.

So, there’s my favorites for 2009.

And I reserve the right to edit this list at a later time.  Just in case.
