And It's Hard To Leave

In the spirit of the end of the year, I decided to follow suit of some friends like Ethan Luck, I decided to do a year-end list of the best albums of 2009. I feel secure in providing this list now considering the rest of December looks very bleak for album releases.

Without further ado, here's the list:

10) Andrew Bird - Nobel Beast
9) David Bazan – Curse Your Branches
8) Jay Z - The Blueprint III
7) Neko Case – Middle Cyclone
6) Mos Def – The Ecstatic
5) The Dead Weather - Horehound
4) Grizzly Bear – Veckatimest
3) Wilco - Wilco
2) Elvis Costello - Secret, Profane and Sugarcane
1) Phoenix - Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix

I don't feel like each album needs a review or an explanation. And each ranking on the list might easily be interchangeable with another, but all in all, I feel like this list get the ten best records out there*.

*I haven't listened to several records that are on other lists, so it's an easy assumption that a couple of deserving records may have not made the list.

Definitely get into Canon Blue and all things he puts out
