|What I Liked This Year|
The best five albums I heard from 2007
|1||The Pax Cecilia|
Blessed are the Bonds
Read the review on this site and placed my order on the site. Like a month later I got it and listened. The band truly creates an ambient world I have never heard before. Shame more people haven't heard of them outside the site.
I heard this one before Funeral, and I have to say I like it more. The songs sound beautiful and majectic. Not a bad track here, and "Intervention" and "No Cars Go" are brilliant. The latter being my song of the year.
Predictable to be here, but a truly brilliant album that marked the return of Radiohead to the Earth. I never was a huge fan of their electronic albums, but I loved The Bends and Ok Computer and I'm glad to see they didn't go way off the deep end with this.
The Hunters Lullaby
Our Lady Peace's vocalist surprised me with this. The album sounds nothing like the band's music. Raine Maide creates catchy and beautiful arrangements featuring pianos, strings, and guitar. A touch of hip hop can be heard too.
Fear of a Blank Planet
A fan of the bands previous releases, this was a surprise. The album really moves as an album where the others were more song-orriented. A moody, unexpected trip awaits with clever lyrics many can relate to
