Q's Best Albums of 2009

Happy Thanksgiving everybody. Anyways, I stumbled upon this list from Q Magazine. It recounts their favorite albums of 2009. The list is a little silly in two ways: first, there is over a month left in 2009, and second, many of the albums on the list are quite bad. I haven't minded Q too much when I've read it, but this list is certainly questionable. Arctic Monkeys, Muse, and Kasabian are in the top 10. But, hey, they're British, and they're proud of it. (The top 10 is below, and the rest is here. I guess this means we'll start seeing a lot of best of '09 lists soon. Mine will come around the last week of December probably.)

10. Phoenix--Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix
I'm not a fan, but it could be worse.
9. U2--No Line On The Horizon
I don't like U2 regardless, but even people who love them didn't like this album.
8. Lily Allen--It's Not Me, It's You
It's not Alright, Still, it's bad.
7. Muse--The Resistance
Hmm. Interesting.
6. Arctic Monkeys--Humbug
Again: interesting.
5. Manic Street Preachers--Journal For Plague Lovers
I haven't heard it. Seems decent enough.
4. Animal Collective--Merriweather Post Pavilion
This feels oddly out of place. Nonetheless, it's a great album.
3. Yeah Yeah Yeahs--It's Blitz!
It's okay. Nothing special.
2. Florence And The Machine--Lungs
Never heard of this.
1. Kasabian--West Ryder Pauper Lunatic Asylum

Go enjoy your turkey.
