Top 3 bands of 2009
01. L'Arc~en~Ciel. They released their Live in Paris dvd this year, and all their solo projects were very active and amazing as well!
02. D'erlanger. New album, and from what I have heard their show in the NHK Hall in Tokyo in November was amazing too (and is probably gonna be made into a dvd if I got this right!)
03. MUCC. Lots of activity overseas, as well as a new album, as well as being just plain amazing lately!
Top 5 albums of 2009
This was seriously difficult. I know throughout the year I felt there wasn't enough new music released by artists I like, but looking back there was plenty. Very good stuff too! That's why I decided to not make this a top 3 like in previous years, but instead a top 5.
01. Ken - IN PHYSICAL. When this was just released I had doubts about it, but it grew on me and now I absolutely absolutely love it.
