Comments on: Help– My Top Five Albums of 2009 are Way Too Mellow http://designnotes.info/?p=1776 Testing & Sprinting Mon, 20 Feb 2017 09:49:00 +0000 hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=4.7.7 By: Greg Jones http://designnotes.info/?p=1776&cpage=1#comment-100267 Wed, 13 May 2009 14:35:23 +0000 http://designnotes.info/?p=1776#comment-100267 I quite like the Doom album too, but Micachu's “Jewellery” is my current favourite for this year. Or Metric's “Fantasies”. So hard to choose.

(And the Manics/Passion Pit albums aren't out just yet…so you didn't miss them.)

not to plug my site, but I did recently post on all of these so you can find more there.

Amazing stuff. You can get a taste of it at his MySpace page:


And there is one song – “The Madman” – that breaks up the mellowness.
