As a guy who plausibly could claim he listened to more music than anyone in the last year short of Robert Christgau, 1000TimesYes's Christopher R. Weingarten seemed like the ideal guy to ask for a year-end best-of list. So we did. After reviewing a thousand records in one calendar year using a mere 140 characters or less per review, he ought to know. So without further ado, from the critic who began the year as just another review-pusher and ended it in a blaze of viral videos, F2K decade-bashing, locavore mp3-pushing, micro-genre controversy, and Twitter infamy, we present The 1000TimesYes Top 100: The Top 100 2009 Records Of A Guy Who Listened To More Records Than You.
