    Hammers of Misfortune - The August Engine
    Electric Wizard - Dopethrone
    The Mountain Goats - Tallahassee
    Lightning Bolt - Wonderful Rainbow

    Green Day- 21st Century Breakdown
    Neko Case- Middle Cyclone

    Gosh darnit, wrong thread. Well, I still haven't done much better :p

    For the first half of the decade I mainly stuck to a few niches... nu-metal was the only genre I could be bothered to stick to albums.

    And why the hell did I post Tallahassee as a 2009 release? No way that was 09.
