Top Records of 2009..


Dic 31 2009, 13:48

It's the turn of the year again, already, thus it's time to select, retain and discard..This year, I've not spent as much time on the latter and as a result, have wound up with a top 100, as opposed to last year's 50, however, it has once again been a hard process, with records in the lower echelons being as pleasing as some of those in the higher ranks..Well, here goes, as usual, the top group consists of personal favourites, the second completes the top 50, the following, third grouping consists of the second 50 thus completing the 100..Each grouping is in no particular order bar that of an alphabetical nature..Enjoy!!

    hi Sid! impresive list, really. browsed the whole thing and although i'm not into the screamo/hardcore-genre at all (too old for [this kind of] rock'n'roll, i guess), i made some interesting discoveries. first of all Little Black Cloud by A Wake A Week is fantastic, Still Light i liked too, and i didn't noticed by now that Lisa Gerrard has put out a new one this year! i'm a dedicated Dead Can Dance listener since nearly twenty years. cheers & a good new year, Hotblack Desiato
