Since I'd already turned in a Top Ten for the Village Voice Jazz Critics' Poll, and a Top Ten Metal Albums of 2009 to Village Voice Media (which will show up on the Voice's blog, as well as the blogs of numerous other VVM papers across the U.S.A.), I decided to make my primary Pazz & Jop ballot all-Latin. Here's what I submitted (in alphabetical order, 10 points each):

Bebe, Y.
Bomba Esteréo, Blow Up
Don Omar, iDon
Girl in a Coma, Trio B.C. (there's only one Spanish-language song on the album, but they're Mexican-Americans)
Graciela Beltran, Reina de la Banda
Natalia Lafourcade, Hu Hu Hu
Paulina Rubio, Gran City Pop
Los Tigres del Norte, La Granja
Various Artists, Sí, Para Usted: The Funky Beats of Revolutionary Cuba, Vol. 2
Wisin y Yandel, La Revolución
