Best of 2009 (Thus Far)

Now that we are past the halfway point in the year, here are my favourite albums of the first half of 2009. It is yet to be determined which ones will make the end of the year Top 10, but these are the albums that have caught my attention so far. (Credit to Shley, from whom I stole this idea).

In Alphabetical Order:

Beirut - March of the Zapotech and Realpeople Holland

Andrew Bird - Noble Beast

The Decemberists - Hazards of Love

Bob Dylan - Together Through Life

Franz Ferdinand - Tonight: Franz Ferdinand

Gomez - A New Tide

Lisa Hannigan - Sea Sew

Jason Isbell & the 400 Unit - Self-Titled

The Low Anthem - Oh my God, Charlie Darwin

Mos Def - The Ecstatic

Regina Spektor - Far

M. Ward - Hold Time

Wilco - Wilco (the album)


  1. maybe not your style...but you left off phoenix and passion pit.

  2. I've enjoyed Phoenix's past albums. I just haven't gotten around to listening to their new one.
