MikaThe "superpop" of Mika's "The Boy Who Knew Too Much" was a highlight of 2009.

Washington Post music editor Joe Heim is a man of few words, thoughtful and succinct. Here he offers up his favorite albums of 2009 and provides a two-word description for each. Good stuff.

Visqueen, “Message To Garcia
Message delivered.

Mika, “The Boy Who Knew Too Much”
Rufus-y superpop.

Darlings, “Yeah I Know”
Velvety goodness.

K’naan, “Troubadour”

Girls, “Album”
Not generic.

Bob Dylan, “Together Through Life
Old faithful.

(The rest of the list, after the jump.)
