T2009/Albums of the Year

Yep it’s time for me to create T2009 and in view of that here are a few albums I’ve enjoyed this year:

Little Boots – Hands

Stunning little pop number, I just love this album. There isn’t a song I don’t enjoy on this album and each and every one leaves me with a smile on my face. Stand out  tracks include the lovely duet Symmetry, the incredibly catchy Remedy and the slightly geeky Mathematics.

Chevelle – Sci-Fi Crimes

Hadn’t heard of this American rock band until this year, but really like this album. Immersive rock songs with some rhythmic guitar and very haunting vocals. Stand out tracks for me are Jars, best rock song for me this year by far, and This Circus, love the riff on this one.

U2 – No Line on the Horizon

Nothing different from U2, but it’s still U2. Not much more to say, but check out the powerful and emotional Moment of Surrender.

There are loads more albums I’ve been listening to this year including some oldies (Rush, Faith No More and Extreme), some things new to me (Alabama 3) and some new (The Script and Foy Vance). See you next year.
