Can't say that I have a top favorite release for 2009, at least not yet. There are too many albums I'm liking. :P

Right now, it'd probably be between Porcupine Tree's The Incident and Dream Theater's Black Clouds & Silver Linings.

The blueprint 3 by Jay-Z
I liked the album overall, although i haven't heard many albums so far so i haven't got a variety of albums to choose from.

I've only bothered getting 3 albums so far this year, I liked all three equally.
'Act II: The Father of Death' by The Protomen.
'Horehound' by The Dead Weather.
'No Line on the Horizon' by U2.

That's definately up there.

But I have too say that it's between It's Blitz! by Yeah Yeah Yeahs and West Ryder Pauper Lunatic Asylum by Kasabian for me.

Other Notable Albums of 2009

Merriweather Post Pavilion by Animal Collective.
Red by Datarock.
The Eternal by Sonic Youth.


And a few others.

I haven't gotten much music this year, but the album that sticks out the most to me is "Act III: Life and Death", by The Dear Hunter. Wonderful addition to the story they've told through their music.

Mastodon's "Crack the Skye" album. I still say "Blood and Thunder" is best.

2009 has been a strange year for music I feel. Most of the bands like didn't release n album this year. But If I were to pick one album that has substansionally stood out for me, it would most certainly be Muse's new album call "The Resistance". I'll admit though, it isn't thier best album to date but it's good, I definately enjoyed it! But as I say, not a whole lot of my favourite bands released an album, or a very good one if they have. However, 2009 isn't over yet so we'll wait and see!

I can't really decide yet, waiting for Brand New, The Fall of Troy and Paramore's new albums, and I havn't listened to the new Muse album yet either. So far though I'm going to say Old Crows/Young Cardinals by Alexisonfire.

Definitely Green Day's 21st Century Breakdown. Huuuuuuuuuuuge Green Day fan here, they're my heroes. I haven't really bought any other albums this year, but even if I had they wouldn't beat Green Day for me. xD

Okay, Jeffree star is currently doing a pre-streaming of his album on MySpace and now I have a full listen to the album and its absolutely my favorite album of the year!

Beauty Killer & Get Pysical are my theme songs.

Also, I got Jay-Zs album, The Blueprint 3 and its one of the best Rap albums this year. The one thing that annoys me about it is that there are few tracks without someone featured on it.

Not if you live in the UK it isn't.
The UK recieved The Fame for digital download and physical sale on January 12th 2009. So for us Brits and most Europeans, it can technically be our album of /this/ year.

I'm going to have to say that my favorite album of 2009 would have to be the release of Exposed by Kristinia DeBarge. At first I didn't like any song other than Goodbye until I gave the album a few listens. Obviously it was one of those albums for me that grew to be more liked the more you listened to it. Her range of vocals in this album is rather impressive considering she premiered on American Juniors and seemed to have disappeared for a short time then suddenly, she releases a single off her soon to come album that really hit home and introduced a wide variety of listeners.

My favorite tracks off the album would have to be Goodbye, of course, Sabotage, and Powerless. I really wasn't a fan of R&B, however, until I listened to this album. Of course, my favorites are more upbeat titles of the album, but the rest of the album I enjoy as well. Especially Died in Your Eyes and Doesn't Everybody Want to Fall in Love, which do a compliment to her range in vocals.

Shame her music videos aren't as good as her singles, though. (Namely the Goodbye music video, which was just horrible, in my opinion)

Jay-Z's The Blueprint 3 for me. He collaborated with some great artists and there isn't a single song I don't like. Run This Town is definitely my favorite song at the moment. They're all great songs to listen to. I love D.O.A., and while I do like some auto-tune, I'm sick of every song being auto-tuned completely, so I'm glad to know that there are some artists who aren't into it - so yeah, it's probably my favorite song on the album. It's funny how T-Pain took such offense to it. :P

Jadakiss - The Last Kiss
Jay-Z - The Blueprint 3
Raekwon - Only Built 4 Cuban Linx 2
Ace Enders and a Million Different People - When I Hit The Ground

Kinda disappointed by Daisy. I feel Brand New could have done a lot better.

You're a Yankee fan and you're at least cognizant of Brand New. You're the man.

I liked Daisy. It's a polarizing record for sure but there's alot 'done right' in there.

It's kind of a toss-up between a few for me..

Alestorm - Black Sails at Midnight
Sonata Arctica - Days of Grays
Rammstein - Liebe ist Fuer Alle Da (won't be released until October 20th, though)

brand new is utter amazingness.

but unfortunately, Daisy was a big meh in my eyes.

It's good,but it seems like a drop-off from Devil and God

I agree. It almost seems like they tried too hard to combine their older material with the stuff from Devil and God.

Mastodon's "Crack the Skye" album. I still say "Blood and Thunder" is best.

I'm gonna have to go with Crack the Skye as well as my favourite album this year. Not really familiar with any of their older stuff though.

Besides that, I don't think I've checked out any other releases this year.

I for sure think it's a big drop off. It's just a harder album to listen to. 'Daisy' the song is awesome and there are a few other ones on there I really like but as an experience...really not as strong.

I'm always going to love Deja and YFW though.

For the sake of how much I appreciate "D.O.A.", Jay-Z's "The Blueprint 3" takes it. The song is something I can connect with; I'm sick of every musical act that's ever had even the slightest success doing this stupid autotune-pop thing because it's what's in, and lightening their clothes and acting more...happy. There's no...edge left in pop today...which is shameful. :V

My favorite album of 2009 will have to be "Life Starts Now" by Three Days Grace...which comes out TODAY!

Seriously, there work is epic, and there new album is no exception. World So Cold is my favorite song, followed by Life Starts Now, and Break......Epic Work.

Relapse, by Eminem. Its the only album that I have bought this year, so I guess its the winner.

I'm with Blood on this. The album is amazing. I like all of their work although my favourite songs differ to him slightly. My favourite is Last To Know and then World So Cold.
