I surely tried to stay below 100. I deleted many, but I simply didn't see the point of cutting down even more. Many fascinating albums are on the list. I think there is a lot of genre variation (even though one will immediately see that certain genres are completely missing) and some really rare gems are hidden in between.
Still, a lot of 2009 music I kind of enjoyed are not on the list, for various reasons, especially if the music is not working as an album, but just as single tunes. And if someone finds one of their favorites way down around #100 that doesn't mean it's crap to me. All that made it here I truely enjoyed. Also, imagine this list being done within the past few weeks at wintertime. Moods of all kinds influenced the positions quite a lot. So even if the first dozens are ranked with much care, the lower more or less 2/3 of the list are not. They have fallen under my arbitrary and rather random judgements.
1 Merriweather Post Pavillion – Animal Collective
2 Dragonslayer – Sunset Rubdown
