Best Album of 2009 POLL


We are finally here. The decade's closing year. Over these 11 months we've heard some groundbreaking music from old and new favorites. As always, the shortlist for 2009 won't please all of you, but we are trying our best to capture the zeitgeist in music in 2009. Please vote for your favorite of the bunch:

A. The Antlers - Hospice
B. Animal Collective - Merriweather Post Pavilion
C. The Dirty Projectors - Bitte Orca
D. Grizzly Bear - Veckatimest
E. Phoenix - Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix
F. The xx - xx
G. Neko Case - Middle Cyclone
H. Japandroids - Post-Nothing
I. Manic Street Preachers - Journal For Plague Lovers
J. Passion Pit - Manners

A quick note on my apparent memory loss: a top ten list is just that — ten albums. For this specific one, like the other polls, I turned to prominent music critics to select albums that really captured music fans in 2009. But in a year where dozens of great albums were released, a majority of them are bound to get snubbed.
