I hope everyone is having a great holiday season. Mine is a-OK so far. Running has been pretty good and I am looking forward to the 2010 season very much. One of the things I love about the end of the year is looking back at some of my top highlights of the past year. I hope to share a few of these things with everyone in the next week. So as a big music fan( and someone who loves to run with my ipod ) hear is my top 10 albums of 2009. Let me know what you have on your list.

10. Son Volt- American Central Dust

I love six of your top 10 and hate one. Probably explains why we both listen to the Current.

Joe Z said...

U2 is way to low.. top album of the year.

Kurt said...

So Steve which one do you hate so much ?

And yes Joe after looking at it more I would move U2 up but just not sure how far. I will say that they still rock hard live after all these years. The show in Chicago this fall was great !!

SteveQ said...

I hate the U2 album! But then again, I think they've only had a half dozen great songs (and three came off The Joshua Tree long, long ago).

I am definitely going to have to check out the Mason Jennings album. I have to agree with Wilco, Pearl Jam, Dead Weather, Monsters of Folk and of course U2. The rest I haven't heard, but I am sure they are worth a listen.

Thanks for posting it.
