    1. Yeah Yeah YeahsIt’s Blitz!
    A pretty much unanimous Hotcakes decision, this album has dominated our listening this year. Taking on such a different sound to their early days, the trio have maturity oozing through them, whilst still maintaining the early vigour and life throughout the album.

    This is one of those few brilliant records that delight the mainstream and alternative types alike. A truly beautiful collection of slow, fast, rousing and sorrowful songs, carried out by rigorously powerful instrumental work and vocals that we had no idea Karen O was capable of.

    One of Hotcakes best live bands of the year also, Karen O can work a stage as well as I dream she can work… you know… other things.

    2. Major LazerGuns Don’t Kill People… Lazers Do
    A debut collaboration of epic standards that shocked eardrums all over the world. …

    This took me forever to compile. It took lots of searching through my library, catching up on some late-in-the-year releases, and going back and reminding myself of some of my faves from early in the year…The only rules were that the ALBUM (the Drake mixtape would have charted on my top, but it topped the mixtapes instead) had to be released in 2009 (thus, why an album like Beyonce’s “I Am… Sasha Fierce”, which had tons of hot singles this year, is not included on this list).

    Check out my picks below and PLEASE leave comments, questions, praise, hate, or suggestions for my lists…Thanks in advance!

    My Top 20 Albums of the Year
    20) Rihanna - Rated R
    Never would have thought she would be on my list over Chris Breezy, but once I finally gave in and listened to it, she edged him out...
    19) Melanie Fiona - The Bridge
    Soulful melodies and great production make this the female throwback album of the year...
    18) R. Kelly - Untitled
