As 2009 draws to an end, we take a look back at what we believe were the best albums released this year. With such a diverse year in music, which saw atrocious albums and brilliant albums being released in equal abundance, let us guide you through what should be on your Christmas wish list.

Below is our definitive guide to the best albums released over the last twelve months.

1. Fuck Buttons - Tarot Sport (ATP)

Picture 20 of 20

Tarot Sport is a testament to and continuation of Fuck Buttons' endeavours through sound, guided by laptops, drum machines and synthesisers. Throughout, shimmering synthesisers swirl like a cascade of stars, while droning organs tear through the tracks , all dragged along by pounding military beats, leading to a dark euphoric state. Tarot Sport is a work of epic proportions, matched only in its brilliance by its originality, which is why it makes it to the top of our list.
