Albums I Missed in 2009

As in 2008, there were a number of albums released this year that I didn’t get around buying. Money may come from trees but it surely doesn’t grow on them! Some of these albums I’ve been aware of for awhile, others I just recently found out about. Oh well, here’s some 2009 releases I plan on picking up sometime in the near future…

3 Inches of Blood – Here Waits Thy Doom: They finally got rid of their “screamo” vocalist so now it’s all down to Cam Pipes’ shrill pipes. I’ve never had a problem with the music, just the second vocalist. I’ll probably get this one pretty soon because what I’m hearing online is great.

House of Lords – Cartesian Dreams: I had been waffling on this one for quite some time, then I thought I had finally decided to not buy it due to some wimpy songs I heard but I’ve read some more reviews, previewed some more songs and now I desperately want it! I’m no stranger to House of Lords, but I’ve never bought an album by them.

Bulletboys – 10c Billionaire: I’ve actually ordered this album TWICE this year (once from Amazon and once from CD Universe) and both times the order was delayed without notice and in the case of CD Universe they went as far as to delete the listing! I’ve heard cheers and I’ve heard jeers for this album, but I like the two or three songs I’ve heard. I don’t expect to be blown away, but I suspect it’ll be decent. I guess I’ll have to order directly from Chavis Records though.

A friend passed this one over to me years ago and it’s a good collection of 70s/80s/90s acts. Queen, Alice Cooper, Black Sabbath, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Cinderella… Sounds good to me! The album was a big hit, making it to #1 on the Billboard 200, knocking off Nirvana’s Nevermind!

In 1992, Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” (originally released in 1976 and charting at #9) became a gigantic hit, working it’s way up the Billboard charts to #2 after being re-released as a single, all thanks to the song’s inclusion in the movie. The hilarious scene is one of the best uses ever for a song in a movie

“Feed My Frankenstein” is one of my favorite Alice songs and for years, until seriously getting into Alice, I thought it was an older tune. I didn’t realize the song’s inclusion in the movie and on the soundtrack was a clever marketing ploy to promote his recently released Hey Stoopid album.

Highlights: “Bohemian Rhapsody”, “Hot And Bothered”, “Rock Candy”, “Feed My Frankenstein”, “Ballroom Blitz”
