2009 Review: Top 25 Albums

After an extensive hiatus, Neosurrealist is back with its picks for the top albums of 2009. Although the year in post-rock and related genres lacked a depth of solid releases, several albums proved as concrete extensions of the artistic techniques and passion that have come to define post-rock. While few records in 2009 demonstrated a truly ground-breaking, monumental shift in method or manner, many artists presented works that, given their proper due, harbored genre-defining moments. From the string-infused, cacophonous yet relatively restrained walls of sound on Mono's Hymn to the Immortal Wind to the raucous dynamics of The Forgotten Host to Ioseb's familiar but perfected combination of e-bow and angelic vocals, the year in review will indeed remain memorable to many a post-rock fan. If anything, 2009 has engendered a unique type of post-rock album: a record with the steadfast dedication and excitement of an earlier work, but with the added benefit of more than a decade of acculturation and refinement.
