Best of 2009 – Everyone else

Filed under: Best of — assman41 @ 12:01 am

If you missed it yesterday, here is what I considered the best music of 2009.

Now, a look at what everyone else thought of the year that was.

BEST OF 2009

  • … No. 1 album: Neko Case, “Middle Cyclone”
  • eMusic … No. 1 album: Girls, “Album” … this list should probably be taken with a grain of salt, considering it doesn’t include any music that’s not offered by eMusic.
  • The Hype Machine … No. 1 album: Animal Collective, “Merriweather Post Pavilion”
  • Metacritic … No. 1 album: Nirvana, “Live at Reading” … this page includes a whole slew of top 10 lists from a variety of sources, including most (if not all) of the ones listed in this post.
  • MOG … No. 1 album: Phoenix, “Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix”
  • MOJO … No. 1 album: Animal Collective, “Merriweather Post Pavilion” … This isn’t the official website, but it’s the only link I could find.
  • NME … No. 1 album: The Horrors, “Primary Colours”
  • NPR … No. 1 album: Grizzly Bear, “Veckatimest” … This is actually a link to all the various year-end lists NPR posted from a whole spectrum of writers and musical genres. The top album I listed is actually from the All Songs Considered Listeners Poll.
  • … No. 1 album: Animal Collective, “Merriweather Post Pavilion” … No. 1 song: Animal Collective, “My Girls”
  • Rolling Stone … No. 1 album: U2, “No Line On the Horizon” … No. 1 song: U2, “Moment of Surrender”


While we’re at it, here are all the various end-of-the-decade lists I could dig up.

  • eMusic … No. 1 album: The Strokes, “Is This It?”
  • Entertainment Weekly … No. 1 album: Kanye West, “The College Dropout”
  • Metracritic … No. 1 album: Brian Wilson, “SMILE” … No. 1 indie album: The White Stripes, “Elephant”
  • Paste Magazine … No. 1 album: Sufjan Stevens, “Illinois”
  • … No. 1 album: Radiohead, “Kid A” … No. 1 song: OutKast, “B.O.B.”
  • Rolling Stone … No. 1 album: Radiohead, “Kid A” … No. 1 song: Gnarls Barkley, “Crazy”
  • … This is my favorite message board to check out. Besides the obvious sports-related topics, there are a lot of pop culture threads, including the posters’ favorite albums of the decade and their top songs of the decade.
  • Stereogum … No. 1 album: Radiohead, “Kid A”
  • Uncut … No. 1 album: White Stripes, “White Blood Cells” … They actually break down the top 150 albums of the decade. You can find the links to the other segments in a small breakout box near the top.

Tomorrow, I shall unveil my top music from the past decade. Stay tuned.
