Pitchfork's Top 50 Albums Of 2009

December 18, 2009

Everyone’s favorite all-knowing music site Pitchfork.com has officially announced their list of the Top 50 Albums Of 2009, and I’m pretty sure anyone that knows anything about the indie music scene can easily guess what albums landed in the top slots.
Here's the Top 20:

20. Real Estate - Real Estate
19. The Pains of Being Pure at Heart - The Pains of Being Pure at Heart
18. Atlas Sound - Logos
17. The Very Best - Warm Heart of Africa
16. Antony and the Johnsons - The Crying Light
15. Japandroids - Post-Nothing
14. Neon Indian - Psychic Chasms
13. St. Vincent - Actor
12. Yeah Yeah Yeahs - It's Blitz!
11. Fuck Buttons - Tarot Sport
10. Girls - Album
9. Fever Ray - Fever Ray
8 Phoenix - Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix
7. Bat For Lashes - Two Suns
6. Grizzly Bear - Veckatimest
5. Raekwon - Only Built for Cuban Linx... Pt. II
4. The Flaming Lips - Embryonic
3. The xx - The xx
2. Dirty Projectors - Bitte Orca
1. Animal Collective - Merriweather Post Pavilion

As I said with P-Fork’s Top 100 Songs Of 2009, it really would have been nice to see some metal or deeper hip-hop/rap titles take up some room in the top 20. Converge anyone?
