    1. Green Day - 21st Century Breakdown
    2. Muse - The Resistance
    3. Dead By Sunrise - Out of Ashes
    4. KISS - Sonic Boom
    5. Trans-Siberian Orchestra - Night Castle
    6. The Lonely Island - Incredibad
    7. Ace Frehley - Anomaly

    Dropped out:
    John Frusciante - The Empyrean

    GBC's Uzi Does It didn't make my top 10, and there isn't anything else coming out this year that I'm particularly interested in (that I'm aware of anyway), so this will likely be my final list for 2009.

    I've heard a great number of extremely good albums this year, but I think after listening to the whole Them Crooked Vultures album on youtube that it really takes the cake. Probably even better than the Mastodon that came out early this year.
