|My Top Album's Of 2007 (so Far)|
I don't like metal.
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.
|2||The 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.
|4||Minus 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.
Drugs to the Dear Youth
Like Dillinger playing jazz on speed. They make me wish I didn't suck at playing guitar.
|7||Maps 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.
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.."
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.
|Alcest Souvenirs d'un autre Monde is missing, it's non metal enough for you to enjoy.|
|first five are good|
|1-5,7 are all within my top 15|
|2 and 4 are excellent. no Boxer by The National?|
|wasn't trees, swallows, houses released in 2006?|
|really good list, barring that Modest Mouse album at least.|
|This is the most credible list so far, cuz it has more than just metal or just alt rawk.|
|No Straylight Run, after that review?|
|I thought about. It'd make the top 20. I missed of Wilco's Sky Blue Sky too.|
|I need 6 sooooo bad.|
|Am I the only person here that doesnt really like #4?|
|#10 owns, helped me sleep when I was sick|
