Best Albums of 2007

07 was a great year in music, and expect a lot more posting of music
on the blog, so here we go..

Top ten albums of 2007:

10. Burial - Untrue

When I started seeing Burial on all the music blogs this year,
I was really skeptical about this 'dubstep' but when I downloaded
this album and listened to it on some good speakers,
it was an experience.

9. Klaxons: Myths of the Near Future

THE nu rave album. J.G. Ballard and Burroughs, sci-fi rock!

8. Peter Bjorn and John - Writer's Block

Gotta love Swedish rock! Young Folks was definitely a single
of the year, and is definitely a classic in my eyes.

PB & J - Up Against The Wall

7. LCD Soundsystem: Sound of Silver

2007 seems to be the year of the sophomore record, because this
record shows a lot of potential for LCD, All My Friends and Someone Great
are two songs that should be on everyone's playlist.. great song writing.

LCD Soundsystem - All My Friends

6. Justice -

French dance is back, along with Daft Punk, this duo pretty much makes
dance music what it is today. D.A.N.C.E. was the anthem of the summer,
and the rest of the album is strong all the way through.

Justice - D.A.N.C.E.

5. The Arcade Fire - Neon Bible

There are definitely some great songs on this new record.
The Arcade Fire really knows how to put out an album with a concept
behind it, and you can definitely see that with the artwork and this awesome
website they have.

The Arcade Fire - Neon Bible

4. Kanye West - Graduation

Biggest hip hop record to hit the market in years! This was really on a
whole 'nother level, Kanye did everything and anything on this one.
The music videos were on spot, the artwork from Murakami was also a plus,
but looked kinda cheesy with the cover. Almost every track was enjoyable
to listen to, and the sampling from Daft cannotgo unspoken..
Stronger broke down barriers!

3. Radiohead - In Rainbows

The album that changed it all! Radiohead is the epitome of a rock
band. I can't think of anything they have done wrong in the time they've
been together. There is no question that this album will forever be remembered,
timeless music and timeless distribution strategy. It just gets better with every listen.
All I Need was definitely my highlight for this one.

2. Bloc Party - A Weekend In The City

Most music people put this down as a disappointment, but I really
cannot see that in the least bit with this one. Their sound has definitely
evolved and Kele's vocals and lyrics are much better than Silent Alarm.
Can't wait 'till the next one!

Bloc Party - The Prayer

1. M.I.A. - Kala

Hands down the best album of the year. This album had it all, the truest
WORLD album that has ever been made (Afrikan Boy, Wilcannia Mob,
samples from Sri Lanka!) Bamboo Banga starts it off strong, and it ends with
probably the most popular song off this album, Paper Planes. Watching her
live was probably the coolest concert I will ever experience. Everyone
should have this album, no matter how you get it, GET IT.

M.I.A. - Jimmy
