Best Albums of 2009

Yes, so this happened much later than I originally expected. I should say that though the list is numbered, it doesn't necessarily reflect how I really prioritize each album. All these albums were picked because I actually listened to them this year, not because they were hyped up or because they're musically superior.

haha if you like deerhunter you would probably like atlas sound, that is brian cox's solo project. i think phoenix's album is good, as well as the new yeah yeah yeahs. oh and dark was the sound is an album with a lot of different artists collaborating together, it took a while to get into, i had to listen to it a few times through, but it grows on you. ohh and matt & kim is one of my favorites.
