Travelin' Show was indeed released in 2009. I recommend replacing it with The Moon is Down's Excellent Adventure.

Honorable mention to the assload of EPs released by Lion or Gazelle as well as the singles released by Anthony Bennett on Bandcamp.

Not technically albums, but pretty close.

Yeah, "Excellent Adventure" is definitely # 1. "Highway to the Sun" is # 2. "The ARMC Presents the Twin Ports" is number 3, despite not being an album by a band. 4-10 are all Iron Maiden's 'Killers.'

I think Sarah Krueger had a good year.
Fractals - Death By Fender has some good stuff too.

Coyote did something this year, right? I liked that. Oh, and Hazeltron had some fun releases too!

It wounds me horrific nobody mentioned them, but hands down, Return of Scrotor by the Fractals, best band in a 1000 mile radius, and best Santa helpers in town tonight!!!

Oops, sorry Shane!

The half hearts are by far the worst bad I have ever seen. The song writing is just abysmal as is the music.

My top ten would include many that have already been mentioned, but I would also include James Moors' "Skyline" album.

James Moors "Skyline" should definitely be on the list! Why is it missing? 

Also, The Half Hearts album is very special to me! It's the catchiest album on this list next to Trampled by Turtles.

I also think the Fractals should have made an appearance on this list!

The Half Hearts are an evolving talented group of musicians. The Half Hearts are attracting new people who bring fabulous diversity to their ensemble. They are the "Uptown Sound" in the Twin Cities metro.

Tony Bennett is also evolving. I think he's growing and extra arm.
