|Top 2007 Albums|
A top 25 list I feel confident about as the year comes to a close. 1-7 are rated 4.5. The rest are 4.0s.
Noah Lennox of Animal Collective fame strikes gold with beautiful and lush musical landscapes using a loop method that is used to perfection.
One of the most challenging, yet catchy releases of the year that translates incredibly well live.
|3|| ||Do Make Say Think|
You, You're a History in Rust
Do Make Say Think expand their songwriting capabilities with a well-balanced effort that is hard to stop playing once it's started.
|4||The Number Twelve Looks Like You|
Mongrel shows how far the Number 12 Looks Like You have come since their debut. In fact, Mongrel shows how far they are able to bend and mold multiple genres together to create a technical masterpiece.
In Defense of the Genre
Say Anything had 27 chances to screw up, but they didn't. In Defense of the Genre contains lyrics that make practically everyone shudder whether it's about your religion, race, or girlfriend.
Quite possibly the most overlooked album of 2007 among Sputnik, Deerhunter's latest release, Cryptograms, is a dissonant and yet infectiously catchy release.
The Locust expands on their previous EP to create a more than enjoyable full length while maintaining their roots of originality.
Burial's hit, 'Archangel' was the reason I gave this album another chance and I'm glad I did.
The Alchemy Index: Vols. I and II...
Thrice get it done, again.
Leslie Feist, marry me.
A little too gay at times, but nothing really comes close to average.
I'm still doing the D.A.N.C.E.
Spiderman of the Rings
Dan Deacon, please, never grow up.
|14||Ghastly City Sleep|
Ghastly City Sleep
The American version of Sigur Ros are nothing less than brilliant.
'The Machete Twins' is one of the best songs I have heard all year.
North Star Deserter
With the supporting cast he had for some songs, it's hard to screw up.
Album is great, but the replay value is just too low to really excel at something beyond that.
|18||Stars of the Lid|
And Their Refinement Of The Decline
Zebra can suck my teat.
When I first got this, it was fantastic, then it quickly lost it's spunk.
See 18, replace with Zebra with Nick Greer.
mmmm Neon Bibles.
Friend And Foe
Bari fucking saxophone. Oh yeah, best artwork '07.
Somewhere in the Between
I feel they played this album a little too safe.
One of the best new bands I've heard this year.
The Flying Club Cup
Zach Condon got a little lazy this time around, but it's still a more than enjoyable listen.
