Honourable Mentions
  • Metheny/Mehldau Quartet
  • Tomahawk – Anonymous
  • Dominici – O3 A Trilogy Part 2

  • Paradise Lost – In Requiem
  • Black Snake Moan OST
  • Radiohead – In Rainbows

Disappointments of the Year
  • Dream Theater – Systematic Chaos
  • Foo Fighters – Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace

These albums are not bad. They just fall short of my admittedly high expectations.

Dishonourable Mention
  • Smashing Pumpkins – Zeitgeist

Not even “so bad, its good”, just mediocre.
