Best Music of 2009: Perspective in Retrospect

Just when you thought you'd had enough of my endless lists...surprise!  I know 2009 has been over for, like, a whole week now(*), but why the hell would you do a best of the year while the year in question was still going on, anyway?  And when I made 2009 ineligible on the "Best of the 2000's" list, it really made this one a foregone conclusion.  That, and I wanted an excuse to try my hand at making a collage.  (Verdict: I can do better.)  Here we go, and I promise to be much less wordy this time.

(*) Or a week and two years, whatever.  I began this on January 7 of 2010, abandoned it (and the blog in general) when things got a bit wonky for me, and honestly forgot it even existed until a couple months ago.  It was roughly one third done at the time, and I've tried to complete it the way I would have then, but at the end I'll have some things to say about how two years have affected it. Also, I completely lied about the "less wordy" thing. Honestly, I am encouraging mass skimming of this article, as it's way too long and indulgent. So, do what you always do, but enjoy it less (more?) because of my consent.
