Best live Album: Happiness on the Road - Marillion 15, February, 2009
Best Studio Albums:
6. Embryonic - the flaming Lips
Adios to the popish leanings of the last three albums, hello experimental freakishness!
5. 21st Century Breakdown - GreenDay
A very solid follow up to American Idiot. Daring to go for another concept piece
4. The Hazards of Love - The Decemberists
Kind of like early REM on acid
3.Everything that Happens Will Happen Today - David Byrne / Brian Eno
Byrne's most Talking Heads sounding album since he left with a nice dose of Eno weirdness
2. Insurgentes - Steven Wilson
Wilson is the driving force behind Porcupine Tree. Sweeping, rocking, moody, experimental - brilliant
1. The Incident - Porcupine Tree
The Incident Suite is 55 minutes of of unabashed progressive rock. Jammy, quirky, thoughtful and intricate.Gavin Harrison's drumming is otherworldly. The second disc has 4 more new songs and two live tracks from 2008.
It's 8:11 AM and it's -1 C!
