It is a fantastic album. Well deserved Album Of The Year. Aural Moon is a pretty neat online radio station also.

Well done. I hate ranking these things my favourites change all the time, but I would put The Undefall Yard way out in front. Which is high praise because the albums by iQ, The Tangent, and Transatlantic are all up there with the best work of these great bands.

I would have liked to see MEW and The Leaves in the list and the Ocensize box set (a great live album set).

Congratulation, fully deserved.

Me again, sorry!

Last year you posted your best of 2008 (and a poor show it was - full of re-issues). However, I couldn't have chosen better, 2008 was a poor year - the best for me was the re-made version of English Boy Wonders and the version of The Lamb.... by Nick, which I though much more interesting than yet another remix of the original (which I own in several versions already).

Anyway (to qoute a song from the lamb) 2009 has been a much better year. What does your list look like? I'll show you mine if you show me yours.
