Top Albums of 2007

A Listmania! list by Jason Harrington "Trucker Hater Magazine" (Little Rock, AR)
The list author says: "Everybody has their year end lists, so here's mine. Please keep in mind that this is a "best albums of 2007" list and not best breakthrough band or single or anything else. Oh yeah, and I put them out of order."
Yell & Ice
1.  Yell & Ice by Subtle
The list author says:
  "Simply an amazing group, and possibly the best of Dose One's ever prolific output."
$8.98   Used & New from: $0.99
5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (1 customer review)

Planet of Ice
2.  Planet of Ice by Minus the Bear
The list author says:
  "Call it pop-prog or post-alternative, but for me this is like the quaint voice of the Lemonheads over the turbulent ambition of the Mars Volta."
$11.88   Used & New from: $4.45
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (33 customer reviews)

Abandoned Language
3.  Abandoned Language by Dalek
The list author says:
  "If you find your brain wrecked after hearing two seconds of this, that's the correct response to the noisest hip-hop group of all time...think My Bloody Valentine meets Public Enemy."
$12.98   Used & New from: $2.75
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (7 customer reviews)

The Con
4.  The Con by Tegan & Sara
The list author says:
  "Maybe I should have added a bigger breakthrough artist like MIA, but these twin Canadian lesbians have wormed their way into my heart with such a flawless execution of hook after hook after hook."
$10.69   Used & New from: $1.15
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (89 customer reviews) | 3 customer discussions

23
5.  23 by Blonde Redhead
The list author says:
  "It's hard to pinpoint the magic in this group, but I loved their last album and 23 is even more flawless."
$14.16   Used & New from: $1.25
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (42 customer reviews)

Roadkill Overcoat
6.  Roadkill Overcoat by Busdriver
The list author says:
  "...tragically understated in almost ever year end list, but...WOW...smart, fun, and very complex. A total masterpeice of post-hip-hop."
$9.40   Used & New from: $0.87
4.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (9 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

The Alchemy Index, Vols. 1 & 2: Fire & Water
7.  The Alchemy Index, Vols. 1 & 2: Fire & Water by Thrice
The list author says:
  "At first listen you might mistake Thrice for "modern rock" or "post-metal" garbage, but this is the album where they have clearly stepped into a league of their own, with possibly some of the most well-read lyrical poetry of this decade."
$14.98   Used & New from: $3.49
4.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (68 customer reviews)

The Good, The Bad & The Queen
8.  The Good, The Bad & The Queen by The Good The Bad & The Queen
The list author says:
  "Damon Albarn has shown he is a trully prolific musician, and while there were certainly more eventful albums to come out this year, mature songs often equate to much more timelessness than all the attention grabbing stuff."
$9.90   Used & New from: $0.01
4.1 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (62 customer reviews)

Neon Bible
9.  Neon Bible by Arcade Fire
The list author says:
  "I was not one of those people who was blown away by "Funeral," but "Neon Bible" is simply undeniable. Somehow they managed to refashion the music of America's Heartland in a way that still works for the Eurocentric art school crowd."
$12.98   Used & New from: $2.94
4.1 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (235 customer reviews) | 6 customer discussions

I'll Sleep When You're Dead
10.  I'll Sleep When You're Dead by El-P
The list author says:
  "This hit me right between the eyes the first time I heard it and it only gets better with each listen, as does EL-P with each album. I have followed this guy's career since Company Flow and I have no clue why some CoFlo fans talk down on this release."
$13.68   Used & New from: $2.33
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (33 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

Friend & Foe
11.  Friend & Foe by Menomena
The list author says:
  "You may find this difficult since every song is like a different group, but it's consistently loaded with great hooks and big splashing drums."
$13.98   Used & New from: $0.11
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (36 customer reviews)
