2009 is over and so begins the natural phenomena of the "best of the year list". Its like a law of the earth really.

I would have made the list to 3o but I'm to lazy, and I dont have the time to upload five more tracks. You should be happy with 25... hopefully. Also I apologize for the lack of info on these albums and why I liked each one so much. After getting some good feedback from my last post I feel like I'm letting the small group of people who read this blog down. So I apologize to you guys, my new years resolution will be to provide better post in the near future.

Well there is another list of good ass music for you. As usual let me know how you feel about these albums, and tell me how I screwed the list up. And since there are two kinds of people in this world, (People who love Animal Collective and People who hate Animal collective) I expect to see one of these two comments. 1. What the hell damn guy! AnCo number 2!? this blog is for the birds. 2. oh wow! AnCo number 2?! I guess they're not as overrated as I once thought. Im glad someone is finally putting the animal collective in their right place. (this guy is being very sarcastic by the way)


I have removed some mp3's due to copyright infringement allegations. I have been notified by the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry for allegations of infringement. I'm going to leave the mp3's down for now until more information is gathered. Sorry for the inconvenience. Blame the man, not me
