My Top Album's Of 2007 (so Far)

I don't like metal.
1Arcade Fire
Neon Bible

Not as good as Funeral I know but it's been a slow year so far and in the absence of Radiohead getting their lazy asses into gear, this has been my top release so far. Experimental and interesting while being catchy and accessible. Really strong album.
2The Pax Cecilia
Blessed Are The Bonds

I have Dfelon to thank for getting me into this, so much going on in their music, transcending so many styles yet it all comes together cohesively to make for a great listen.

On originality alone they deserve to make the list. The album can feel cold and artificial at first, which is kinda the point, but it grew on me.
4Minus the Bear
Planet of Ice

It was about time that Minus the Bear got serious. They had the music before but lyrics are a big part of a band for me. Good to sea Minus the Bear got up to speed in this department and made the album of their careers.
5 Do Make Say Think
You, You're a History in Rust

Even though post rock has become a little bogged down with clones, I think Do Make Say Think are on of the few bands at least trying to do something different. Great jazz influnce on this and they were excellent live too.
6Tera Melos
Drugs to the Dear Youth

Like Dillinger playing jazz on speed. They make me wish I didn't suck at playing guitar.
7Maps and Atlases
Tree, Swallows, Houses

About time indie rock got technical. They over-do it a little on the tapping but it's still great to see a fresh idea on a tested formula.
8Modest Mouse
We Were Dead Before the Ship Even Sank

I know Modest Mouse can do better but this was still a step towards brighter things and a vast improvement on "Good News.."
9The Kidcrash

Totally unexpected triumph, their demos were just generic and predictable scrammzz and out of nowhere they made the screamo album of the year.

Beautiful ambient album. A good extension of what he's already achieved, breaks some new ground but above all is just the best thing he's ever done.
