"Official" Best of 2009 Thread


Recommended Posts

Here we go. Loads and loads of great releases this year (hence a top 40 list). The classic rock bands certainly ain't dead that's for sure and certainly gave the newer bands a big run for their money throughout. Number one spot was a very difficult choice, but Mastedon just pipped it, as it covers just about all my favourite musical bases in one album. Some great re-issues on CD for the first time aswell, which I have noted in a seperate list with a few great box sets and live discs aswell.

I bought a shed load of stuff this year, so there were quite a few that didn't make it in.

 

I've edited a couple of mine, as I forgot the excellent Balance album, House Of Lords (although quite a lowly position) and Renegade 5 you so kindly reminded me about.

Cant be bothered to change mine too much so here's the final verdict.

 

MHR -

 

 

1. W.E.T. - s/t

2. Danger Danger - Revolve

3. Steel Panther - Feel The Steel

4. Winger - Karma

5. Kiss - Sonic Boom

6. Place Vendome - Streets of Fire

7. Gotthard - Need To Believe

8. Farcry - High Gear

9. Crash The System - The Crowning

10. The Poodles - Clash Of The Elements

 

 

 

 

Modern

 

 

1. Monty Are I - Break Through The Silence

2. Coldrain - Final Destination

3. New Device - Takin Over

4. Heaven Below - Countdown To Devil

5. Skillet - Awake

6. Daughtry - Feels Like Home (inc bonus tracks)

7. Nural - Entitlement

8. Adelitas Way - s/t

9. Halestorm - s/t

10. The Veer Union - Against The Grain

 

 

The biggest surprise of the year for me was Winger. I had pretty much written him off after a dodgy album and pretty useless FF performance. But bugger me backwards if Karma aint a classic and is only beaten by 3 near flawless albums from WET, D2 and of course the awesome Steel Panther.

 

To be honest there aint much between Monty Are I and Coldrain, but I gave it to the more melodic release....although that takes nothing away from the awesomeness of Coldrain......the Japs did good.

 

Cheers

What about Sahara Rain (AT NUMBER ONE!!!) and Killing Touch... two of the worst CDs of the year? :lol: How much do you hate Matt? Come on everyone, tear his list apart please.

 

I can understand the other lists, but seriously, what kind of freak-ass list is that? Matt, please fight me.

 

Anyway, I do love you for putting Steel Panther in the list, though. Let's make love after we fight.

 

I got to give a lot of repeated spins to the best of 2009 on my holiday so once I settle in, unpack and sort some photos I'll try to get this sorted hopefully asap. So I can show you all the correct version of 2009. ;):lol:

I didn't buy a ton of cd's in 2009 but I might as well throw my list up there out of what I bought:

 

Best of 2009:

1. Delain - April Rain -even though sleaze is my first choice in music, after listening to the samples Dan posted I had to get this cd and it rarely leaves my playlist. I play it so much Mrs. Jeff even knows some of the songs though she does not like "loud music". Not a bad track on here. I enjoyed it so much I had to find their debut Lucidity and purchase that. I am almost scared to search out similar bands for fear a whole new genre of music will end with my empty bank account and divorce papers.

2. Dynasty - Bring The Thunder -this one and the next 2 could swap spots in any way...loved all 3

3. Dirty Penny - Young & Reckless

4. Hardcore Superstar - Beg For It

5. Tango Down - Damage Control

6. FarCry - High Gear

 

Stuff that was just ok:

7. Burn Halo - Burn Halo -a few really good tracks, the rest are forgettable

8. Steel Panther - Feel The Steel -funny, but gets old quick, then funny again, then old again

9. Strike Twice - Strike Twice -with more play time in the future this one could grow on me

 

Didn't care for:

10. Lillian Axe - Sad Day On Planet Earth

 

I believe that was all I bought from 2009 so don't beat me up too bad on stuff excluded from my list.

A few from 2009 on my list to purchase are:

Winger

Danger Danger

Hardline

Lynch Mob

House of Lords

WASP

Chris Laney

...and any great sleaze releases that you guys and gals want to suggest to me that I missed. I learn and discover so much on this board, thanks and here's to a great 2010! I cannot wait for that Crashdiet cd....gonna kick some ass.

 

Jeff

    • So I listened to this and it's pretty bland on teh first listen. Only real stand out was the last song, because it's a slow ballad and suits the bland vibe. Hopefully will get better with more listens...
    • I hate threads like this. My expectations for this are so high they will certainly drop when I hear it. Then afetr more listens it will surge I;m sure, but there is no way it can come close to what i am expecting lol
    • Album out now... this ROCKS!!!                         https://gbdeclaration.org/
    • AWESOME!!! Song...   https://gbdeclaration.org/
    • going to play today at some point. expecting a cheesefest but in a good way 
    • I've never seen that before on Spotify - says full album available soon. it's not clear if they've held in back or there's been an error uploading it 
    • From what I understand, Pete and Steve are extremely pissed at Mark "Gus" Scott. https://www.madrock1025.com/trixter-members-go-public-with-feud/ In an argument that’s gone uncomfortably public, Trixter drummer Mark “Gus” Scott has fired back at his disgruntled bandmates, claiming he only wants what’s best for the group. The feud began when Steve Brown and P.J. Farley told interviewers Scott was on “the sh*t list beyond belief,” comparing him to disobedient dog. Now, in a new interview, Scott says the band’s problems go well beyond just one dissenting member. “I don’t know if the ‘bad dog’ is the best analogy and the best manner in which to visualize what’s happened with Trixter,” he says. “I think there’s been different ideologies within the band for a very, very long time. We’ve been together over 30 years. So I think there’s always been — I don’t wanna say a ‘rift,’ but more recently, if there was a rift, it was certainly becoming more and more exponentially grown.” While not naming names, Scott says his issues are with the band’s “leadership,” adding he refuses to be “led by ignorance.” Ouch. How long will it be before Trixter either calls it quits or parts ways with Scott? Have the members of Trixter been together too long?
    • What's the story there? I recall a couple videos between the two "new" albums that portrayed them all as good buddies. 
    • A magnificent hidden gem from Ted Poley.    
    • Ok, so they did shoot a video for "Breakdown." I fucking love this song!!
