Best Of 2007

The best releases of the year that I have got around to listening to.
1 The Arcade Fire
Neon Bible

Coming off of one of the most over-hyped albums of recent years with Funeral, the Arcade Fire successfully topped Neon Bible's predecessor without remaking it. Expanding on their ambitious sound which is hit and miss between awkward lyrics and R?gine Chassagne which in the end are both forgivable. Neon Bible is the soundtrack to the end of the world and the last days of life.
2The National

If Alligator made the National indie favorites, then Boxer broke them out of the underground into the mainstream with the help of Sufjan Stevens. Gaining strength after multiple listens Boxer is no modern day masterpiece but a great release from a promising band.

A super-group of sorts, the Battles features ex-Helmet (and current Tomahawk) drummer and ex-Don Caballero guitarist who, along with technology, are the backbone of the group. Their airtight processed vocals, pulsating drums and one-note guitar hooks make for a perfect marriage of cut-and-paste music software and real, actual musicians.
4Dan Deacon
Spiderman of the Rings

Usining hooks and cartoon samples to make up for the lack of depth and emotion Dan Deacon makes one of the catchiest albums of the year. Replacing actual emotion with nostalgic feelings of Woody the Woodpecker and Sunday morning cartoons, Deacon manages to make a sincere album in one of the most insincere genres of music.
Ultimate Victory

No reason.
6Holy Fuck
7 Yoko Ono
Yes, I'm A Witch
8 Melt Banana
Bambi's Dilema
9Mark Ronson
10Patrick Wolf
