I wish the scene recognized bands like Reign of Kindo, seriously one of my top albums of the year!
But I do agree with Get Out being a song of the year.

I think the Deftones album is great. Also, The National was so boring live and I really can't stand Sleigh Bells. Haha
Totally agree with the Circa Survive and pretty awesome that Dustin included Castevet. Although, I was personally disappointed in the Minus The Bear post-Lolla show.

Did any other band put Bed Intruder on a list? Should've been AP.NET's #1 song of the year. and remix.

Yea they are! Although I voted Birth.Eater my top cd of 2009, so they have always been awesome, but the new indie raw rock sound takes the cake!

Yeah, Birth.Eater is an amazing atmospheric hardcore album. Absolutely love it. It's in my top 20 albums ever, for sure.

Reign Of Kindo is wonderful. Have you listened to the new Oceana yet? Please get on that.
