THE MOST CRAY-CRAY ALBUMS OF 2009

[Edit: This was a draft from like a year ago that never got posted.]

We're assembling materials for our 10-year-anniversary retrospective. And 2009/2010/2011 have no "Best albums" lists, so here's one of them. [Edit: There is actually no planned 10-year retrospective but that would be cool.]

Overstuffed with more great mixtapes, EPs, and cassette-only releases than what followed, 2009 sparked the modern era. Many new artists. A jump in quality from what preceded.

(The title refers to a recent Bojack episode in which Mr. Peanut-Butter predicts that a Halloween 2009 party will be "cray-cray" although we're still not sure "cray-cray" was a thing prior to 2012.)

I'm pretty smart, if I say so myself. This afternoon, we walked into a fruit store, and the clerk thinks I'm some out-of-town hick. "Those apples will be two bucks each," he tells me. That's where I outsmarted him. I pass over a five. And as he's about to give me a dollar change, I say, "Keep it, we're even. On the way in, I stepped on a grape.
