Too bad you misquote the damn thing on Facebook.

I wasn't in the best of shapes when I did, bub. Slight facepalm after the fact, but the damage was already done.

I was driving home at about 3:30am a month or two ago, and a song came on the radio that I loved with every fiber of my being on first listen. I had no idea what it was, but lucky for me, my independent station of choice posts their playlists online. I get home about 4am, and instead of going to bed, I'm researching the song and find out its 'Rabbit Heart (Raise It Up)' by Florence + The Machine. I purchased the album later that day.

Definitely one of my favorite songs of the year, and the album will probably make my year end list as well.

Here's my tentative best of the year list in albums.

1. Antony and the Johnsons: The Crying Light
2. Depeche Mode: Sounds of the Universe
3. Grizzly Bear: Veckatimest
4. Bat for Lashes: Two Suns
5. Morrissey: Years of Refusal
6. Dirty Projectors: Bitte Orca
7. Neon Indian: Psychic Chasms

I really enjoyed No Line on the Horizon, but though I listen to it more than any of the albums listed above I do not believe it to be superior in terms of vision and execution to any of those on the list. I also spent so much time listening to classic jazz this year that I likely missed a number of strong 2009 releases.

I'm really enjoying the Miike Snow and Julian Casablancas albums that I learned about in this thread.

I'd hope not, at 1:30AM on a Thursday night.

It was a facepalm ... the size of a tangerine.

That was the night a whole bunch of us tried to catch that meteor shower. That was an all-nighter.

One could say you were out all night ... WATCHING THE PLANETS!

This came full circle, albeit with a very small circle.

At least we avoided the naked bike-riding army and the slimy pig-ball vagina thing.

Metric's Emily Haines looks like she's capable of passing on my genetic material.

And the music is fantastic as well. Collect Call is one of my favorite tracks on Fantasies.

was triple j's list.

there's a lot of love for Paul Dempsey, which is great to see. He released a great solo album.
You posted that list in the S/T the other night, didn't you? I knew I saw Mumford & Sons pretty high up on a list somewhere. Well I'm glad I did. It significantly changed my top 20. Possibly even my top ten.

And on that note, I will also check out Florence & The Machine

Listening to it right now -- not bad.

I enjoyed Miles Benjamin Anthony Robinson -- Summer of Fear a lot, another album I learned about from this thread.

My top five is pretty stable but after that I'm finding it hard. Here's the top five in no order:

Two Suns by Bat For Lashes
Lungs by Florence and The Machine
Fantasies by Metric
Actor by St. Vincent
Abnormally Attracted To Sin by Tori Amos

This year's albums seem like the opposite of last year. This year has a few best of the decade contenders but not a lot in the way of quantity while last year had quantity but not the greatest quality.
