The 11 Most Anticipated Albums of 2009

Before I list the top three unknown albums of the 90s...I want to take a quick look forward at the year to come. Because as you know in life, people are obssessed with either reminiscing about the past or talking about things to come...rarely do we ever stop to enjoy the present. I once worked with this guy Ted, who spend hours making massive spread sheets of activities he was planning to do. Trips he was planning to take and groups he was planning to join. He would break down the hours it would take to partake in the activities and the prep each activity needed. And if I'd ask him when he was going to do one of these activities...he's always reply...Soon. In the couple of years I worked with him, he never ever did anything. It was like the planning was his escape from the present. He was looking forward to a ficitional future where he was a different person and lived a different life.

Here are the 11 Most Anticipated Albums of 2009:

1. Dr Dre - Detox (June)
2. U2 - No Line on the Horizon (March)
4. Jay-Z - The Blueprint Part 3 (April)
5. Green Day - 8th Studio Album (September)
6. The Beastie Boys - 7th Studio Album (May)
7. Wilco - 7th Studio Album (May)
8. White Stripes - 7th Studio Album (July)
9. The Strokes - 4th Studio (August)
10. Decemberists - Hazards of Love (March)
11. Depeche Mode - Wrong (April)
