Favorite Of 07

In my opinion, the best of 2007.
1Arcade Fire
Neon Bible

If 'Funeral' was a masterpiece of youth, hope and family, 'Neon Bible' is The Arcade Fire's declaration of maturity and loss -- thankfully the spark is still there. The Fire bombast through out 'Neon Bible' with images of lost humanity, and a desolate future, outcries for action and reformation before we're overtaken by our own weight...some crazy shit. Though comparatively, the Fire were more joyous and bouncy on their last release, the deep dark caverns of 'Neon Bible's more reserved yet grand style shine through the wash and distortion that covers it's sound. There's something to be said though, with the loss of their youthfulness (only on record thankfully), something always feels a bit empty about it all. Not enough to detract from all the highlights of an absolutely fantastic album.
2The Besnard Lakes
The Besnard Lakes Are The Dark Horse

'Devastation' and 'Because Tonight' are probably the two best songs I heard this year, surround that with 6 more amazing tracks that will rock you to the core. Thing is, they sure take their fucking time to do it -- but when it hits, it's good. I compare this to the first few times I listened to 'Kid A'; didn't quite get it, it's reserved, it takes it's time, but it builds to great peaks. After many repeated listens, and the loudest show I've ever seen, 'The Dark Horse' is safe to say, a restrained, but glorious LP.
In Rainbows

It's Radiohead, it's some of the best music they've made, and it's easily the most focused record they've ever done. CD2 is pretty sweet too.
4The Go! Team
Proof Of Youth

I don't know why, but I love this noise rap. Though it doesn't quite hit all the pop peaks of 'Thunder, Lightning, Strike', it's a damn good listen. They sound a bit more tangible this time around, more like a the real band they are, and it's great.
5Animal Collective
Strawberry Jam

Something about it fits just right, not quite sure what, but it works. Oh wait, they've made some 'real' songs, some structure, and holy crap -- it's awesome!
6White Rabbits
Fort Nightly

The 1920's never sounded so good, or brooding, or fucking weird for that matter. The Rabbit's own personal blend of indie/ska is some fun, wild and deep music. With superb writing and vocals capped by one of the best rhythm sections around today they pack so much into 'Fort Nightly's running time, it really feels like a journey.
7 Justice

The best dance album I've heard since the Avalanches dropped 'Since I Left You'.
8Yeah Yeah Yeahs
Is Is [EP]

Some of the best music I've heard from one of my favorite bands.
9Kevin Drew
Spirit If...

Kevin Drew basically made another BSS album, I know, but I do love me some BSS. It's more lo-fi this time around, the vocals are turned up, and he really just pulls out all the stops.
10Panda Bear
Person Pitch

Noah Lennox has my favorite voice in modern music, surround that with washy Wilson brother sound and I couldn't ask for much more. As most Collective releases, it can get to be a bit nuts, but, it doesn't detract from the sheer quality here.
11Clap Your Hands Say Yeah
Some Loud Thunder
12Blonde Redhead
14Lupe Fiasco
The Cool
15The Beatles
