Top ten Albums of 2009

Here's my top ten for 2009.

1. Prefab Sprout - Let's Change the World with Music
2. Florence & the Machine - Lungs
3. Doves - Kingdom of Rust
4. Arctic Monkeys - Humbug
5. Noah & the Whale - First Days of Spring
6. Monsters of Folk - Monsters of Folk
7. Echo & the Bunnymen - Fountain
8. Decemberists - Hazards of Love
9. Maps - Turning the Mind
10. Mumford & Sons - Sigh No More

Hopefully that lot will stimulate a little debate. I'd be interested in hearing about your top ten's. I'll also be compiling a top ten of the decade in the next few weeks, so look forward to receiving some alternative suggestions.

Open Neck Shirt 2009 is nearly upon us. Another year, another Open Neck Shirt, Friday 4th December, no doubt in the usual places. Look forward to seeing 'most' of you then.

Can't argue with Florence, but there were about 4 groups who have passed under my radar. Monsters of Folk! you've been living in Yorkshire too long!

Album of the year - White Lies

Incidently the link you send through is not hyper-linked.

ONS - there were mentions(in Peters absence) of meeting in Corbs.........


PS It wouldn’t allow me to post without a google id which I haven’t got nor want.
