10 Top Albums of 2007

It's reaching about the end of the year, and even though I'm sure there are some fantastic albums to come out by the end of December, I am doing a top 10 countdown of my favorite albums from the past year. Keep in mind, I haven't heard every album that I should have, but these are the albums which I have heard, and which I have loved. Right now it's late, I just finished putting together my final portfolio for English, and got my design project done this morning, so I'm tired. In other words, I'm not going to write a small clip for each album, just show them, and you'll know... you'll know how you love them. HERE WE GO!

10. Okkervil River - The Stage Names


(Jagjaguwar)

9. Feist - The Reminder


(Cherrytree/Interscope)

8. Iron & Wine - The Shepherd's Dog


(Sub Pop)

7. !!! - Myth Takes


(Warp)

6. Les Savy Fav - Let's Stay Friends


(Frenchkiss)

5. Dan Deacon - Spiderman of the Rings


(Carpark)

4. We All Have Hooks for Hands - The Pretender


(Afternoon)

3. Arcade Fire - Neon Bible


(Merge)

2. Patrick Wolf - The Magic Position


(Loog)

1. Of Montreal - Hissing Fauna, Are You the Destroyer?


(Polyvinyl)



And of course, these weren't the only albums I enjoyed all year. I made some other hard decisions as to who should go on the list, so these are the Honorable Mentions:

The Shins - Wincing the Night Away



Clap Your Hands Say Yeah - Some Loud Thunder



The Besnard Lakes - The Besnard Lakes Are the Dark Horse



Andrew Bird - Armchair Apocrypha



Sunset Rubdown - Random Spirit Lover



The Go! Team - Proof of Youth




And there you have it. Those are my favorite albums from this year, and also a few that just didn't quite make the list, though rest assured, are still excellent. Check them out if you have the time, I promise, they're well worth it.

I am shocked that The Flying Club Cup didn't make your list. If you haven't heard it, you'd better stick your ears in that CD right now.

Also, I'm not sure how big of a Bright Eyes fan you are, but Cassadaga taught me to love the band all over again. As did In Rainbows for Radiohead. This album was a refreshing follow-up to the (somewhat) disappointing Hail to the Thief. Coupled with its unusual distribution and (totally awesome) DISCBOX, I can't see how this album can be ignored.

Unless you haven't heard it yet.

I hadn't heard Flying Club Cup until after I made the list, otherwise, it would have been on there.

As for Radiohead, don't get me wrong, I love the band. But I just liked these other ones better.
