I second this as one of the year's best. For me, however, Fever Ray's "Keep the Streets Empty for Me" takes the crown. The song has an incredible atmosphere.

Now in an act of shameless self-promotion, here's a link to the music website I write for with our Top 100 Albums of 09 list.

CoS Year-End Report: The Top 100 Albums Of 2009

Sadly, the staff as a whole wasn't too kind to No Line (#100) but the list is still pretty cool.

I'm sure many have already seen this, but I figured I'd throw in a quick link to Pitchfork's Honorable Mentions:

Pitchfork: Staff Lists: Albums of the Year: Honorable Mention

They named 2 albums that will make my "favorites" easily, and a couple others I agree were honorable mention quality. What say the rest of you?

Ha, The-Dream was a pleasant surprise. Here We Go Magic, The Big Pink, and Morrissey also released good albums. So no, not a bad list at all.
