10 Best Albums of 2009

Dec 27 2009 Published by under Humor, Music, Personal

I don’t review albums professionally any more, so my list is limited by what I’ve bought and what I’ve heard.  If I missed anything, it probably means I haven’t heard it (or didn’t listen to it very carefully).  In the end, though, “Best” lists are not the end of discussions; they are the beginning.  So enjoy–and add your thoughts at the end.

  1. Leyland Kirby, Sadly, The Future Is No Longer What It Was
  2. Hildur Guðnadóttir, Without Sinking
  3. Antony & The Johnsons, The Crying Light
  4. Tim Hecker, An Imaginary Country
  5. Broadcast and the Focus Group Investigate Witch Cults of the Radio Age
  6. Roj, The Transactional Dharma of Roj
  7. J.G. Thirlwell, The Music of J.G. Thirlwell, Vol. 1 (Original Soundtrack to The Venture Bros.)
  8. Jónsi & Alex, Riceboy Sleeps
  9. V/A, 5: Five Years of Hyperdub
