Best and Worst of 2009

December 23, 2009

I always enjoy throwing these together at the end of the year. Personally, this year was a year unlike any other, but I’ll post about that later. For now, you get these lists that i’ve put together. Keep in mind that when it comes to the top ten and such, order is not a big deal, especially with all of the amazing music that came out this year. It’d be too hard to assign each a number.

Best Albums:
Manchester Orchestra – Mean Everything To Nothing
Relient K – Forget and Not Slow Down
Paramore – Brand New Eyes
Muse – The Resistance
Sleeping Giant – Sons of Thunder
Thrice – Beggars
The Avett Brothers – I and Love and You
Say Anything – Say Anything
Thursday – Common Existence
Dashboard Confessional – Alter The Ending

Biggest Disappointments:

Brand New – Daisy
Taking Back Sunday – New Surrender
Sherwood – QU
Saosin – In Search of Solid Ground
Set Your Goals – This Will Be The Death Of Us

Most Anticipated of 2010:
Jimmy Eat World
Rocky Votolato
Damien Rice?
Saves The Day
The Ataris

Guilty Pleasures:

Best Band That Nobody Has Heard of… Yet:
