Since I joined last.fm, I've done a couple of end of the year most played albums journals. I intend on keeping a tradition of sorts, but in order to celebrate the "Best of 2009" last.fm countdown, and group, I've decided to make a preliminary list extended beyond my usual 15 releases and place them arbitrarily, by the way of guess-making, based on my current mood and recollection of enjoyment and satisfaction. It may very well change in one week... That's why I like to order these journals by play count!

Now these year end journals usually contain a lengthy rant about each release, but I'll save that for the most played recap.

    Yeah, I think you and I will have a few titles in common when I get done tabulating my end of year lists. I could be nitpicky and say that the Moz song you picked was first on his greatest hits which came out a year or so back. But it is one of the highlights IMO, and I should be less trainspottery anyhow!

    All the EPs, singles, comps and geographical reissues make this things a bit more difficult than it should be! For example: Telepathe's album had 6 song that had been previously released, so I ended up including the new song I liked the best, but I think one of the older songs it's still their best I Can't Stand It Arms was initially released in the UK only, last year. And recently released for the first time here in the US, so I decided to include it. *sigh*

    Thanks Budddda! :) I have not heard Sopa&Skin's album but my most played artist (and album) this year was actually a 2008 release: The Kills - Midnight Boom. There are actually a lot of 2009 albums that I have not listened to enough or have completed them *sigh* Busy year! @ClujNapoca It could very well be number 1 because I love it very much. Great song! Thanks for the comments everyone. :)
