    Ok, bit of a negative thread title, overall 2009 has been great for albums, but there have been a few disappointments too. For me: Annie - Don't Stop: It's an accomplished pop album and "Songs Remind me of You" is epic, but it seems a little underwhelming and late to its own fluxpop party which Annie spearheaded with Anniemal but has now been overtaken by the likes of La Roux and Little Boots, not to mention further newcomers biting at their heels like Marina and the diamonds. Shame really, I think delays hurt this album. In pop, timing and relevance is everything. Telefon Tel Aviv - Immolate yourself. Good but just didn't really connect with it. and the biggest disappointment: The Raveonettes - In and out of control: Lust Lust Lust really sounded like a band hitting their stride, I'd argue that it's a better record than anything their Jesus and Mary chain influence ever put out, but In and out of control just seemed to have totally missed the mark. It's got all the same basic ingredients as Lust Lust Lust, but just didn't seem to gel this time. You probably didn't even realise this record existed, there's a good reason for that...

    Phoenix - 'Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix': apart from two cracking singles that open the album, it feels like a photocopy of their previous album and something safe to consolidate their new fanbase in America.

    Upper Air by The Bowerbirds was a bit of a let down.
