    Hey peoples! I know Jan 15 has passed, but I won't have time to tally it all at the moment as I'm still in the studio at the moment, so for those that haven't please vote and we'll close it on Jan 30! :)

    I actually still haven't decided on my top albums of 2009 yet either... :/

    Karnivool- Sound Awake is definitely #1 though! Amazing album. :)

    I've got a uni assignment to do and I've run out of things to do to avoid doing it, so I figured I might as well tally up the best of 2009 list.

    The votes so far, assuming I haven't made any mistakes:

    The clear winner is Devin Townsend with Ki/Addicted picking up 49 points if counted as one album. If counted separately (with the points split evenly for the people who voted for it as one album), Addicted has 28 and Ki has 21.

    The other albums to receive more than one nomination, and their points:

    Katatonia 22
    Be'lakor 20
    Arcane 20
    Anaal Nathrakh 16
    Paradise Lost 16
    Cattle Decapitation 13
    Augury 10
    My Dying Bride 8
    Between the Buried and Me 7
    Old mans Child 6
    Diablo Swing Orchestra 3

    Interesting to note that out of 108 nominations, there were 72 albums that only received one nomination. Wide range of tastes on this forum...

    So basically the top 10 so far, and their points:

    #1. Devin Townsend - Addicted 28
    #2. Katatonia - Night is the New Day 22
    #3. Devin Townsend - Ki 21
    =#4. Be'lakor - Stone's Reach 20
    =#4. Arcane - Chronicles 20
    =#6. Anaal Nathrakh - Constellation 16
    =#6. Paradise Lost - Faith 16
    #8. Cattle Decapitation - Harvest 13
    =#9. Augury - Fragmentary Evidence 10
    =#9. Absu - Absu 10
    =#9. If These Trees Could Talk - Earth 10
    =#9. Gorgoroth - Quantos 10
    =#9. Project Hate MCMXCIX -Lustrate 10
    =#9. Hourglass - Oblivious 10
    =#9. Woods of Ypres - The Green Album 10
    =#9. Karnivool - Sound Awake 10
    =#9. Samael - Above 10
    =#9. Imogen Heap - Ellipse 10

    Also, funny to note that Arcane would be at #1 at the moment if Arcotide had of voted his own band's album as his favorite.

    3. Between The Buried & Me- The Great Misdirect

    6. The Faceless- Planetary Duality
    7. Enslaved- Vertebrae
    8. Porcupine Tree- The Incident
