Top 10 Favorite Albums of 2009

I know you've all been waiting with baited breath for my end-of-the year favorite albums list. Both of you. And just why you've been sitting there munching away on worms while waiting, I'll never understand. (Get it? Baited? Worms? Bwah-ha-ha... oh, nevermind)

In no particular order:

  • 21st Century Breakdown - Green Day
  • Secret, Profane and Sugarcane - Elvis Costello
  • Before The Frost... ...Until The Freeze - The Black Crowes
  • Backspacer - Pearl Jam
  • Working on a Dream - Bruce Springsteen
  • By A Thread - Gov't Mule
  • Wilco (The Album) - Wilco
  • Together Through Life - Bob Dylan
  • Electric Dirt - Levon Helm (Yeah, I know. I'm shocked, too)
  • No Line on the Horizon - U2
And, for fun, my favorite compilations, anthologies, and reissues, in particular order:

  1. THE BEATLES!!!!!!!! EVERYTHING!!!!!! MONO & STEREO!!!!! (eat that, bitch!)
  2. Live Anthology - Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers
  3. The Complete Buddy Holly - Buddy Holly
  4. Archives, Volume 1 - Neil Young
  5. Walking On A Wire - Richard Thompson
  6. Keep An Eye On The Sky - Big Star
  7. Sign of The Three-Eyed Men - 13th Floor Elevators
  8. Woodstock: 40 Years On - Various Artists
  9. Live At Madison Square Garden - Jethro Tull
  10. You Never Can Tell - The Complete Chess Recordings 1960-1966 - Chuck Berry
And, lastly, a few things I will never, ever, ever listen to again, I promise... unless I forget how bad they are:

  • Get Lucky - Mark Knopfler
  • Sunrise In The Land of Milk And Honey - Cracker
  • Graffiti Soul - Simple Minds
  • Sgt Pepper Live - Cheap Trick
  • Christmas In The Heart - Bob Dylan
Everything else falls somewhere betwixt all these lists. (Even Los Lobos Goes Disney)
