Who has released the best album of 2009? Part 1

Well, I have a few bands I will highlight. They have each released albums that are rather phenomenal.

Animal Collective. It seems like an old album now (already 6months) but it is nothing short of ground breaking. I have to admit, my feelings for their older works in, Strawberry Jam and Sung Tongs, are of a loathsome nature. But Merriweather Post Pavilion is WOW. If you haven't bought/stolen it yet, get onto that like yesterday. My favourite song on this album, is the released single, My Girls. If you haven't seen the video for that track, click here. It's still the best video I have seen this year.
How cool are these lyrics:

I don't care for fancy things
Or to take part in a precious race
And children cry for the one who has
A real big heart and a father's grace

I don't mean to seem like I care about material things like a social status
I just want four walls and adobe slabs for my girls

Animal Collective Myspace

What's been your favourite album of 2009 so far? Do you think there is better to come this year?

This album was beyond amazing. I haven't gone a day without listening to it since I bought it! I completely agree about the video and lyrics. They are genius.
