Albums of 2009: 1 – Yeah Yeah Yeahs – It’s Blitz

31 Dec

Whilst the other records on my list are in no particular order, I would say that the Yeah Yeah Yeahs record is definitely the best.

It is always one of the first records that I mention when talking about my favourite albums of the year and nothing has come along since that has made me forget it. I listen to it constantly and I love it more I hear it.

It’s a shift in sound from previous efforts and it’s one that contains colours and depth that you’d never thought they were capable of.

A truly great record from start to finish.

Just to remind you of the list in full:
