Not on the Animal Collective hype.I've really tried with them, I think I've downloaded their last 4 albums every time they've put them out, thinking "Ok, this time I'll get it", but it's never happened. They're just not that good. "My Girls" is a decent song though. Saying that, I prefer the Taken By Trees version:

As for albums of the year, Cryptacize - MythomaniaCamera Obscura - My Maudlin CareerPENS - Hey Friend, What You Doing?Bat For Lashes - Two SunsThe Pains Of Being Pure At Heart - The Pains Of Being Pure At HeartEmmy The Great - First LoveJemina Pearl - Break It UpVivian Girls - Everything Goes WrongCass McCombs - CatacombsWavves - WavvvesWoods - Songs Of ShameYeah Yeah Yeahs - It's Blitz

Couldn't c/s you more tbh+I came in to say Glasvegas by..Glasvegas, then I realised it was released late 2008 :(If I had to pick an album this year it would probably be Only By The Night, but in doing so I have to point out it isn't nearly as good as Because Of The Times, or Aha Shake HeartbreakBut I think it was a 12 or so track albumandSex On FireUse Somebody17ManhattanCloserRevelryNotionBe SomebodyAre seriously all 5 Star tracks, I doubt you can name me a album that has that many good songs from 09Its just a shame that Sex On Fire, Use Somebody, and to an extent Revelry have been RINSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSED so badly by the radio stations I hear at work theyve lost all their magic tbhFantastic album anyway*edit*This also came out in 08 wtf???What happened to this past year of my life?!
