What do you think the best Modern Rock album of 2009?

For me so far it's Fightstar - Be Human. It's a well rounded album and is really good.

Muse - The Resistance was good, but it had some filler on, which I didnt like :/

I havent even picked up Herald Moth by InMe yet, and 30 Seconds To Mars' new one, even though it isn't out yet, the two songs i've heard from it (Kings and Queens and This Is War) sound amazing.

So yeah..discuss?

By Modern Rock, do you mean like radio rock, because there is a lot better stuff than that to come out in 2009.

May not be modern rock but one of the greatest albums of 2009 was Brand New's "Daisy". Many of the fans hated it but its a really deep album. Barely any surface appeal. I've listened to it about 10 times thru now. KSE was a disappointment.
-Ibanez js1200
-Epiphone Les Paul w/ Invader in bridge
-Alvarez acoustic
-Orange Thunderverb 50w w/ 1x12 cab
-Vox Satchurator
-Ibanez ts-9
-Pod x3
-Apple Logic Studio

Modern rock as in what is contained on this forum.

I'd hardly call InMe radio rock....

Breaking Benjamin Dear Agony. I did expect more but its still a great album, each song is great.

In relation to Muse, it is.

Porcupine Tree's The Incident is the best release this year.

After all those posts we had together in the FNM thread, I thought you were cool. You completely undid that with that Muse comment.

Walk Back - Before Cars
Buy the Ticket, Take the Ride - The Black Ryder
Lip Distortion - Linda Strawberry

all great albums even though Lip Distortion is an e.p

ALICE IN CHAINS

The Incident was pretty good too, but not up to par with In Absentia and Deadwing. Those two were godly.

I can't decide between The Resistance and Them Crooked Vultures.

Geneva - Russian Cirlces was decent as well, but that can't compete with the epicness of the first two. The worst I've bought this year is Raditude. It's not terrible, but by far the worst I payed for.

Nope, not Muse. They don't keep one style of playing (which is good), but now it's to the point where they barely play their instruments anymore. It's all music theory put into computers now, so it leads them to correct compositions and songs being played from computers, midi sequences, and synths. They're good, but the new album proves that they have PhD's from the University of Plymouth. I'd say... Alice in Chains

Yeah I agree.

The rawness and guitar work they had in Origin of Symmetry is finally fading which saddens me. The only two guitar based songs on the album are MK Ultra and Unnatural Selection.

I'm actually going to say "Signs and Wonders" by Animal Kingdom. I brought it on a whim because it was real cheap on iTunes but I can't stop listening to it.

This.

Alice in chains + Porcupine tree = Best modern rock 09 albums although not my fav albums of the year.

Well I've only heard two this year, both of them I really liked.

1. If These Trees Could Talk - Above The Earth, Below The Sky

2. Red - Innocence and Instinct

Both of whom put on a really kickass live show And now that I think about it, the only two bands I've seen this year anyway, not that I ever see many, I'm sad to say.

The Fall Of Troy - In The Unlikely Event

It's a proggy/alternative album. It's really grown on me in the past month.

I can't decide between them, but Pearl Jams's Backspacer and Metric's Fantasies are my two favorites.

Though the new Thousand Foot Krutch album was really good.
#35
Them Crooked Vultures Self titled wins it by a mile. Muse's album was good, but no were near as good as this

Sound Awake by Karnivool would be another contender.

This, also Mastodon.
The will be heartache,

If we're going to count Mastodon as modern rock, then yeah, they win it over everything, even TCV. I'm not even a huge fan of Mastodon and that's their only record, but something tells me Crack The Skye will remain a huge classic.
