I'm glad I saw Malkmus on your list. Face the Truth is such a good record.

 

I also loved Billy Corgan's solo album.

 

Broken Social Scene may take the cake for me. The Most Serence Republic's Underwater Cinematographer was cool.

 

What else came out this year? I buy and steal a lot of old music.

Honourable mentions... Xiu Xiu La Foret, Avenged Sevenfold City of Evil, Bright Eyes Digital Ash in a Digital Urn, Armor for Sleep What to do When You're Dead, 30 Seconds to Mars A Beautiful Lie, but these are all albums i listened to non-stop for a fortnight, and haven't touched since. I think that this has been the weakest year for music that i have lived through. Pop is getting better, in my opinion, as is a lot of music, but haven't really heard anyhting mindblowing in a while.

 

 

5) Slipknot 9.0 Live

4) Buck 65 Secret House Against the World

3) Bright Eyes I'm Wide Awake, It's Morning

2) Mindless Self Indulgence You'll Rebel to Anything as Long as It's Not Challenging

1) Decemberists Picaresque

The Editors album is really really good.

I've gotta pick that album up when I get some more cash.
