    OK folks. It's the end of the year and time for a round-up, so let's have your nominations for your albums of the year.

    It's not been a vintage year, but there have been a few gems. I have two albums that I keep going back to.

    "Sigh No More" from Mumford and Sons

    "Judy Sucks A Lemon For Breakfast" from Cornershop

    Any thoughts or alternative suggestions?

    Is "Years of Refusal" allowed? If so, that's my number one choice and one of only two new albums released in 2009 that I actually listened to.

    The other would be Third Eye Blind's "Ursa Major." That album is well described as a super-nova. It kinda builds up after a few listens, really explodes for the next few, and simply fades away thereafter. I loved it at the time; it was a beautiful show.

    outside UK the album was released in January 2009,

    Not to be pedantic but i think that was 2008.

    Super Furry Animals - 'Dark Days/Light Years' deserves a mention.

    Also The Clientele - 'Bonfires On The Heath'.
    Andrew Morgan - 'Please Kid, Remember'. (If you like Elliott Smith you'll adore this)

    I agree that Years of Refusal isn't getting enough credit from critics as one of the albums of the year .. What's new, though?
