^added, and added.

Curse you, iTunes... you lie!

Well that's the problem with making an international list- there can be so many different release dates for one album internationally that we just have to go with the original one. If it's any consolation, it came in at #50 on last year's list, and their fan base was much smaller back then. Nothing like a good sleeper hit. ;)

Would be worth seeing which album makes it to 3 after radiohead & arcade fire :p

And if it's the klaxons or arctic monkeys poor excuses for albums, it will be a shame as both have a couple good singles on and nothing else.

Looks like the media's best of lists have begun: http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/22187795/

My guess is that Travis will finish above the Arcade Fire, possibly top 3. Just a hunch though.

Arctic Monkeys' album was a bit too world weary for me in the end, but the Klaxons album is fantastic all the way through. Not a bad song on it imho, and I'm still listening to it all the time about 10 months later. Probably an acquired taste of a style, though.




I meant to get PMs out about unfinished lists sooner, but am still tracking down the last few release dates. Quite a few albums were released in 2006. The first release date between the US and the UK is the one that counts. So Amy Winehouse's album was released in late 2006 in the UK, early 2007 in the US, and counts as a 2006 album.

This would be the time to tidy up your lists once and for all!!!

I just realized how many albums I could put in this list...

  1. Radiohead - In Rainbows
  2. Nine Inch Nails - Year Zero
  3. Elliott Smith - New Moon
  4. Tori Amos - American Doll Posse
  5. The White Stripes - Icky Thump
  6. Finger Eleven - Them vs. You vs. Me
  7. Raine Maida - The Hunter's Lullaby
  8. Paul McCartney - Memory Almost Full

I'm disappointed only 2 other people mentioned Year Zero. Oh well, I think In Rainbows will take #1 quite easily.

Thanks guys. I'm adding them to the master list now.

Just remember you need at least 5 albums on your list, and they have to be original albums from 2007, so b-side collections like The Killers' Sawdust don't count. ;) Thanks.

Top 5 Albums of 2007

I tried to make it top 10 or even top 20, but constantly kept arguing with myself over it... so here's the streamlined top 5. No surprises at the top:

1) In Rainbows - Radiohead
2) Neon Bible - Arcade Fire
3) From Here We Go Sublime - The Field
4) Icky Thump - The White Stripes
5) Strawberry Jam - Animal Collective

Btw...

By the way, to all the voters out there, i'm surprised i haven't seen more votes for From Here We Go To Sublime by The Field, it's an incredible album of music from a genre of minmalist electronica that really is new and different from everything else out there. There are a few labels in Germany that are putting out this kind of music, and this album is probably the definitive work from this new stylistic development in electronic music. It's minimal, ambient, and would make Brian Eno produ. You all should check it out, its pretty amazing, it's better than any other electronic or techno releases this year, and that includes anything LCD, Justice, or any other bands that are even experimenting with electronica have put out.

I only heard a few songs off Raine Maida's album and wasn't overly impressed. Maybe I'll have to listen again. He was on The Hour last night, good interview.
