Best of 2009: Music

Here are my picks for 2009's best albums...
1. Pearl Jam, Backspacer
2. Train, Save Me, San Francisco
3. Royal Bliss, Life In-Between
4. Regina Spektor, Far
5. Tegan and Sara, Sainthood
6. Them Crooked Vultures, self-titled
7. Wilco, The Album
8. Serena Ryder, Is It O.K.
9. Vienna Teng, Inland Territory
10. Yusuf (Cat Stevens), Roadsinger
11. Chris Cornell, Scream
12. Glasvegas, self-titled
13. Tinted Windows, self-titled
14. Collective Soul, Rabbit
15. Rob Thomas, Cradlesong

Honorable Mentions: Creed, Full Circle; Howie Day, Sound the Alarm.
Disappointments: Weezer, Raditude; Sufjan Stevens, The BQE.
The Jury Is Still Out: Bruce Springsteen, Working On a Dream; U2, No Line On the Horizon.

It has been a brilliant year in music. There were hundreds of releases that were noteworthy, these are just my fifteen picks. Spin has a great list of top albums of 2009, as does Amazon, and, of course, the list from Rolling Stone.

Clearly, my list is skewed for fans that just didn't get enough of 90's music...

Ugh, no one has Muse's new album which I LOVE.
