Bon Ivers’ recent album rating from Pitchfork got me thinking, were we spoilt in 2009? 9.0+ rated albums here, there and everywhere. In truth you’re likely to encounter maybe two 9.0+ worthy albums on average per year. The next question to address is just what does it take to deliver that 9.0+ album? Who am I to say for sure. Evidence of the abundance of riches 2009 delivered below…….
Animal Collective – Merriweather Post Pavillion
Grizzly Bear – Veckatimest
Girls – Album
Dirty Projectors – Bitte Orca
Albums that deserved a 9.0+ rating in my opinion:
Phoenix – Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix
Sunset Rubdown – Dragonslayer
The Antlers – Hospice
2009 was a good year.
