I have only been employed for five months, this year, which has meant a LOT of spare time. I can't even begin to count how many albums (and particularly compilations) I've heard, this year. Not all or even most from 2009, mind...but my in-progress BEST of 2009 (ie, just the albums I loved) right now features 68 records. Not including comps or reissues.

Actually, that's a good place to start, here. I recommend the following reissues and comps, released in 2009...





















And let's not forget this year's Motown singles releases, the Radiohead exploitations, the Miles Davis 71-disc extravaganza for the ages, or the mono and stereo The Beatles reissues!

OH! You listened to 100 albums period in the last three weeks? I thought you meant just from 2009. Nevermind.

Yeah, just new to me. Like, albums to which I listened for the first time. About half from 2009. Give or take.

Yeah, surprised me as well. I personally would have taken a number of other songs from the album, or other singles, over that.

I will say that I enjoyed '08 more than '09 in terms of new musics. Like, quite a bit more. '09 was still cool, though.

I find this statement bizarre. I've heard several people say such things about this year, but even with some disappointments, this year's been the strongest and most consistent for new music in recent memory for me.

I might try to muster up a list, though it may end up being unranked. I've heard too many great albums this year to decide!

Out of all 100 albums I've heard this year, I would only consider one a masterpiece, and that's Veckatimest. Out of however many I listened to last year, I think somewhere in the 60 region, Dear Science, For Emma, Fleet Foxes, and In Ghost Colours blew me away. That's why I personally believe 2008 was a lot better.

Fair enough, I can respect that. I didn't hear Dear Science until this year and still listen to For Emma occasionally, but the other two have slipped considerably in my rankings over the past year. Veckatimest, Bitte Orca, Songs of Shame, MPP, Never Better, The Ecstatic, and Embryonic in one year though? And those aren't even the "very solid" albums from this year, just the 4.5/5 or 5/5 albums for me.

Whoa! Bromst at number 1? That's kind of awesome. I loved that album for about a month, and it peaked with seeing him live. After that, the album didn't quite compare to how great the live performance was lol.

Well, one thing is for sure, our top 10s won't be terribly different. Veckatimest, Never Better, and Embryonic are all strong candidates for mine, with MPP an honorable mention. I really have never liked Bitte Orca though, because I can't stand Longstreth.

The Ecstatic was a possible last-second listen for me. What's Woods' album like?

hmm.

top 5, for now:
U2 - No Line on the Horizon
Emery - In Shallow Seas We Sail
We Were Promised Jetpacks - These Four Walls
Porcupine Tree - The Incident
The Fall of Troy - In The Unlikely Event

i might do a list of songs later, but ones that stand out at the moment are (in no order)
The Twilight Sad - Interrupted
Ex Libras - Underachiever
We Were Promised Jetpacks - It's Thunder and It's Lightning
Tides From Nebula - Shall We?
Thrice - Circles
Pure Reason Revolution - Deus Ex Machina
can't even pick my favourite from NLOTH...perhaps the title track.

Yeah, I sort of figured they would be. I do remember you talking about your dislike for Longstreth, which I understand, but I dig that album so damn much that it's not even funny.

Duuuude, if you haven't listened to The Ecstatic yet, you need to. Now. J Dilla, Madlib, and Oh No contributing beats, and Mos Def and Talib Kweli on a track ("History") together for the first time in years! Easily my top hip-hop album of the year. I'm pretty sure you'll love it too, so check it out before the end of the year.

Songs of Shame is, if I had to peg it with a broad genre, lo-fi psychedelic folk. Not quite sure what it is that's so intriguing about it for me, but I love the lead singer's voice, and lo-fi done well is guaranteed to make me a very happy person.
