Albums & Singles of the Year: 2009
So it shouldn't be a big surprise that Animal Collective has topped both my albums and singles lists this year. I guess primarily because their music had the highest rankings of any 2009 releases on my decade-end lists. But also because they've dominated just about all the year-end critic and blogger lists that have come out so far.
For me, Merriweather Post Pavilion, which was released in January, set the bar impossibly high for all other albums this year. This will probably sound like an exaggeration, but the album -- with its standout track "My Girls" -- was one of those rare first-listens that really felt like hearing an instant classic. And I place my bets that in ten years Animal Collective's greatest album to date will sound just as fresh and impressive.
