|Best Albums Of 2007|
These are what I thought to be the best albums of 2007.
While not as strong as the excellent "Two Way Monologue," the punchy rock of
"Phantom Punch" is a nice change of pace from Lerche's last effort, the jazzy
Ziltoid the Omniscient
Frank Zappa + Thrash Metal * Concept album = this recording. Devin Townsend
is as eclectic as always; this album in particular demonstrates that eclecticism
|8||Explosions In The Sky|
All of a Sudden, I Miss Everyone
Continuing their requisite sound, Explosions in the Sky have crafted another
gem in "Miss Everyone," an album that features some of their most epic ("The
Birth and Death of the Day") and their most gorgeous ("So Long, Lonesome")
|7||Pain of Salvation|
A solid step back from the portentous concept record that 2005's "BE" was, "Scarsick" is the band's most aggressive
outing. Moments like "Mrs. Modern Mother Mary" and the title track are as intense as PoS can get, and the band even
takes the time to mock the good ol' U S of A in the punk-driven satire "America."
|6||Between the Buried and Me|
"Alaska," the band's 2005 outing, was almost uncontrollably kinetic. With "Colors," the band has taken their style,
refined it, and put out a record of massive power and musicianship; a truly awe-inspiring metal record. "Ants of the
Sky" is a testament to the band's skill and their newfound progginess (a country jam at the end of a thirteen-minute
long metal track is weird, even for prog).
Easily the most danceable record of the year, perhaps even of the decade,
"Cross" is rife with creative beats, sampling, and just darn good electronic music.
|4||The Dillinger Escape Plan|
"Ire Works" features the Dillingers at their most kinetic and most creative; they
even manage to pull off a Faith No More-esque radio friendly rock jam in "Black
Fear of a Blank Planet
Porcupine Tree's best album since "Stupid Dream" is a concept record that
features the band at their most complex, challenging, and rewarding. "Blank
Planet" is easily the band's magnum opus.
|2|| ||Steve Vai|
Sound Theories Vol. I & II
With "Sound Theories," Steve Vai has crafted an album that has merged his
famous guitar shredding with challenging and exciting classical music.
A rock records that manages to fit brilliant songwriting in short, four minute
song lengths, "Blackfield II" is a record awash with catchy hooks, intelligent
songwriting, beautifully melancholy lyricism, and fantastic production.
|3 and 1 means yes|
|Sorry, but you're missing Oceansize's Frames. |
|i couldn't disagree with this more|
|not even close.|
|I would've picked: Oceansize - Frames, Kashiwa Daisuke - Program Music I, The Ocean - Precambrian, Pax Cecilia - Blessed Are the Bonds, and yup, that's pretty much all I can think of. |
|also repentance is awfuuuuuuuuuuuuuul|
|no no 3 means yes, fuck them|
|123 on kashiwa and pax cecilia acorncheese.|
also foabp has a good song
|a few good songs whoops|
|iithas 6 amazing songs|
|3 maybe 3.5|
|not even close |
|songs i mean|
|6 fuck yeah|
|Where's Church Mouth by Portugal. The Man? Should be in the top 5 easily...|
|Radiohead - In Rainbows|
The National - Boxer
Burial - Untrue
|needs Colors and In Rainbows|
|I did forget that "Colors" came out in '07, and that would definitely take out either "Ziltoid" or "Systematic Chaos" (probably the latter). |
I think Radiohead are overrated, and I don't think they've matched the greatness they achieved on "OK Computer" anyways.
|The Angelic Process - Weighing Souls with Sand|
|how do you guys not get sick of these lists|
|Canyons of Static|
|more like canyons of faggot|
