Here we are, staring in the face of 2010 and what better way to celebrate the year behind us than to reflect on the top-notch metal albums of the past 12 months! We call it the Brave Picks 2009. Each day in December we will deliver one of the essential records of the year - as voted by the scribes here at BraveWords.com. So starting today (December 1st) the Brave Picks Top 30 Of 2009 begins (yes, we are aware that December has 31 days ... you get to soak in the metal genius of #1 for two full daze!)
Double-bass drum roll please ....
#30 - DEVIN TOWNSEND PROJECT - Addicted (InsideOut)
BraveWords.com's Carl Begai says that "Addicted sits squarely beside Strapping Young Lad’s classic City album and Ocean Machine as one of Townsend’s finest works; a big fat addictive unpretentious listen that will still put a stupid grin on my face 15 years from now."
