So I've seen that Raekwon album on numerous lists now. For anyone that may have heard it, is it legitimately that good? If so, I guess I'll have to pick it up this weekend.

I've never even heard his first solo album, I'll be tempted to grab both.

I do believe IYS... had great things to say about it in one of the Random threads a while back. I love Raekwon on Wu-Tang's first album but, yeah, I haven't heard Cuban Linx Part 1 or 2. I'll get to it eventually.

It's very good. The beats are there (Dilla contributes a few, and they're even ones that he did before his death, so I'm fairly positive they are Raekwon exclusives) as well as Raekwon, Ghostface, and Method Man all putting down solid verses over and over. "House of Flying Daggers" is probably my favorite track.

You should be tempted to, Only Built 4 Cuban Linx... is a fucking classic!

Pitchfork: Staff Lists: The Top 50 Albums of 2009
Terribly predictable, although I love Veck, Fever Ray and Album.

I can't be bothered writing a list of what I like right now, but it's so much easier to talk about what I didn't enjoy, and as far as the big albums go, that goes for Phoenix, Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Bitte Orca on the Pitchfork list, with more to come when I'm sober. I need to listen to The XX album too, I've only heard a bit of it and I enjoyed it, though it was a bit too minimal for me.

Absolutely. I prefer it to Mos Def's album, personally...the songs are more fully-formed, and the beats feel a lot more old school. Tons of great samples. It'll probably be listed among all the hip-hop classics in a few years.

Sorry, bro. I tried to like them, and there are stand out tracks for sure, but none of them grabbed me as much as I'd hoped.

I'm gonna do it the way my man Mr V did...

My top 10 2009 albums
1. Paul Dempsey - Everything is True
2. The Flaming Lips - Embryonic
3. U2 - No Line on the Horizon
4. The Temper Trap - Conditions
5. Passion Pit - Manners
6. Pearl Jam - Backspacer
7. Grizzly Bear - Veckatimest
8. Ben Harper & Relentless7 - White Lies for Dark Times
9. Deadmau5 - For Lack of a Better Name
10. Hilltop Hoods - State of the Art

... there's only been 10 I've heard so far, though I plan on picking up It's Blitz! and the Florence and the Machine & Bloody Beetroots albums tomorrow.

My songs of 2009
Paul Dempsey - Take Us To Your Leader, Fast Friends, Out the Airlock
Passion Pit - Make Light, The Reeling, Swimming in the Flood, Sleepyhead
Grizzly Bear - Southern Point, Fine for Now
U2 - Fez - Being Born, Moment of Surrender
The Temper Trap - Fools, Resurrection
Yeah Yeah Yeahs - Heads Will Roll
Calvin Harris - I'm Not Alone

... plenty more but I can't think of the individual artists, and it's fair to say I was more focus on the following:

Pre-2009 Albums
Architecture in Helsinki - In Case We Die
Architecture in Helsinki - Places Like This
Beach Boys - Pet Sounds
The Beatles - Love
The Beatles - Rubber Soul
Bloc Party - Intimacy
Brian Eno - Music for Airports
Brian Eno - Another Green World
The Clash - London Calling

David Bowie - Space Oddity
David Bowie - Station to Station
DJ Shadow - Endtroducing...
The Flaming Lips - The Soft Bulletin
Hot Chip - Coming on Strong
Hot Chip - The Warning
Hot Chip - Made in the Dark
Miles Davis - Kind of Blue
Pearl Jam - Ten
Pearl Jam - Vitalogy
Pearl Jam - Vs.
Radiohead - Amneisac
Radiohead - Hail to the Thief
Rolling Stones - Beggars Banquet
Steely Dan - Aja

with my top five there probably being 1. Aja, 2. The Warning, 3. Places Like This, 4. Vs. 5. Ten.

a good year.
