    So, all the end-of-decade lists are coming up but it's also the end of a year so let's have our proper discussion on albums that came out this year and bring on your lists! :woot:

    I don't think I listened to a lot of new music for me but Dark Night of The Soul was easily my top favorite, I've been listening to it regularly since march, it's so gorgeous. :wub:

    To be honest it was one of the worst years in music but these albums made it suck a little less.

    :rofl: I say the exact thing every year too.
    It's true that bad music is everywhere but I'm no detective either.So good music runs into me accidentally.:D

    I think Hamada by Nils Petter Molvaer is my favourite of the year. I liked as well:
    jazz in the garden by Stanley Clarke, Lenny White and Hiromi
    live from madison square garden by Eric Clapton & Steve Winwood
    Neharot by Kim Kashkashian

    However, there are quite a few good albums that were released this year that I still have to listen to. The new Kroke album, Out of Sight, for example looks quite good.
    I think it's been a good year overall.

    It's so hard to remember what came out and when!

    • Charlotte Gainsbourg - IRM
    • Prince of Assyria - Missing Note
    • Bat For Lashes - Two Suns
    • PMMP - Veden Varaan
    • Yeah Yeah Yeahs - It's Blitz!
    • Manna - Songs of Hope & Desire
    • The XX - XX
    • Röyksopp - Junior
    I think those are the ones I enjoyed this year.. There must be others too but my head isn't working. Maybe I'll come back and add anything I've missed.

    This year I only managed to find out about 'older' music except for Neon Indian which was my favorite album of summer.

    Neon Indian - Psychic Chasms

    Not releases of 2009 but my favorite albums were Future Chaos by Bomb The Bass, Money Hole by Camille, Pandora's Jukebox's mixes and the music of Yma Sumac. :heart:

    I haven't listened to much albums this year in comparison to others, I've been discovering older artists.

    From this year, I loved:
    Julian Casablancas - Phrazes For the Young
    Animal Collective - Merriweather Post Pavilion
    Muse - The Resistance
    Yeah Yeah Yeahs - It's Blitz!
    Kasabian -West Ryder Pauper Lunatic Asylum
    Bat for Lashes - Two Suns
    Florence and the Machine - Lungs
    Biffy Clyro - Only Revolutions
    The Dead Weather - Horehound
    Norah Jones - The Fall

    Pretty much everything that has already been mentioned.

    I've only heard a few songs from Charlotte Gainsbourg's album. I will probably listen to that fully soon.
