Things were easier in 2009. Even before tallying the votes, we knew that Animal Collective’s Merriweather Post Pavilion would place first and Dirty Projectors’ Bitte Orca second. We knew that sunn 0)))’s Monoliths & Dimensions would be our top “metal” pick, Raekwon’s Only Built 4 Cuban Linx… Pt. II our top hip-hop pick, and Oneohtrix Point Never’s Zones Without People our top “experimental” pick. We knew Mount Eerie, Atlas Sound, and The Flaming Lips would place high, and we knew that TMT favorites like Graham Lambkin, Zu, and Emeralds would, you know, actually make a year-end list.
