2009 Year End List Mentions

These are records that show up in various year-end lists. Anthologies and reissues have been (mostly) weeded out, moved here. Those in blue are ones I have in more/less final form. Those in green I have as stripped down promos or don't have but have managed to hear somehow. The numbers in {} are the number of mentions. Once I've gotten far enough I'll start sorting by mentions. Finally I have some notes. Not every mention is noted, but some of the more significant ones are. To decode them, see the legend at the bottom.

Note: This was basically closed as of Jan. 12, 2009, when I posted this wrap up. Since then I've added personal grades, but haven't touched the totals.

Lists Consulted

All mentions are counted; for minor lists that's all. Symbols in brackets are noted, usually with a rank order; for RC and TH a grade. Metacritic comes first; its score (when known) in parens. Grades are last. Other rankings in between.

Largehearted Boy has a huge list of lists, which helps, although I'm picking things that strike my fancy, throwing out ones that seem too incoherent (which is not necessarily a matter of taste).

Metacritic's summary is here.

Prefix has a reader's poll with results running 594 deep. See here.

Another meta-analysis is available at Acclaimed Music.

The Hype Machine has data compiled from 500 blogs here. Animal Collective outpolled Grizzly Bear and Phoenix 198 to 170 or 169.
