Here are what I consider the Top 5 Hard Rock albums released in 2009. Some great albums on this list.
1. Baroness - Blue Record
Baroness' Blue Record is just off the charts, one of the great albums of 2009 in any genre!
The Red Album was a revelation for many who discovered Baroness for the first time. If someone told me then, that the same band would release an album even better than "Red Album" in 2009, it would have been hard to believe. Well, they did it. I beg you, if you have not discovered this band yet, please put it on your 2010 dues list.
Been meaning to check out this super group project since it's release in June 2009. It has since been certified GOLD, and the last date of the tour is this weekend, Dec. 5, 2009 in Las Vegas. Sammy Hagar, Michael Anthony, Joe Satriani, and Chad Smith = Chickenfoot.
If you have not checked it out yet, here's what to expect.
