Best Albums of 2007

J.L. Pickering
 
Sound of Silver
Sound of Silver
"James Murphy's new croon is a major improvement from the group's 2005 debut. These songs not only are dancable, but are listenable. Sound of Silver is an instant classic and one of the best albums of the decade. "Someone Great""
Boxer
Boxer
"This one is a grower, much like their previous release "Alligator". The National have finally released their masterpiece. "Mistaken For Strangers""
In Rainbows
In Rainbows
"After years of releasing frustrating electronic/ alternative albums, Radiohead have finally made the album that should have followed Ok Computer. "Reckoner""
Neon Bible
Neon Bible
"An almost impossible feet to overcome, but The Arcade Fire prove they can make an album just as strong as 2004's Funeral. "Antichrist Television Blues""
Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga
Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga
"Its funky, its soulful, its playful, and most of all, its solid from start to finish. "The Underdog""
Graduation
Graduation
"Kanye explores new ground with a more synth based beat and it's refreshing. West is unstopable right now and he shows the game why hes one of the best rappers alive. "The Glory""
Strawberry Jam
Strawberry Jam
"Strawberry Jam is definitly the bands most accesible release date. Each member brings a vital presence to the album, especially Panda Bear. "For Reverend Green""
Cease to Begin
Cease to Begin
"Theres alot of beautiful melodies on this album making it more immediate than their debut. This could be something of a breakout moment for Band of Horses. "The General Specific""
Person Pitch
Person Pitch
"Noah Lennox has never sounded so glorious before. Every song here feels warm and welcoming with it's glowy samples. "Bros""
American Gangster [Edited]
American Gangster [Edited]
"American Gangster definitly is the return to form after the failure that Kingdom Come was. Its an exciting listen which brings back the Reasonable Doubt days. Jay-Z churns out another classic and the best hip hop release of the year. "Roc Boys (The Winner is)""
Kala
Kala
"I wasn't a huge fan of Arular or even M.I.A. back in 2005. But Kala is just too good for me to deny this masterpiece. "Paper Planes""
Favourite Worst Nightmare
Favourite Worst Nightmare
"By no means have the Arctic Monkeys fallen under the curse of the sophomore slump. The percussion section is tighter and Alex Turner's voice is becoming stronger every song he writes. "Flourescent Adolescent""
Hissing Fauna Are You the Destroyer
Hissing Fauna Are You the Destroyer
"This is good acid poppy fun. While it is a very dark record for Of Montreal, its sugarcoded with upbeat tempos and sing along melodies. "A Sentence Of Sorts In Kongsvinger""
Liars
Liars
"The Liars have warmly welcomed back their spectacular guitar sound. "Freak Out""
Cassadaga
Cassadaga
"Maybe Not as brilliant as "I'm Wide Awake It's Morning." But this album sure has its moments of genius. Conor Oberst has explored the country genre much better than I had thought he would. "Four Winds""
Our Love to Admire
Our Love to Admire
"On their major label debut Interpol mix up their formula a little bit. For the most part though, its a classic sounding Interpol record. "Pace Is The Trick""
Sky Blue Sky
Sky Blue Sky
"Wilco shows much more maturity on Sky Blue Sky. It may not as be as exciting as their older material but its still an impressive album. "Impossible Germany""

We Were Dead Before the Ship Even Sank
We Were Dead Before the Ship Even Sank

Men's Needs Women's Needs Whatever
Men's Needs Women's Needs Whatever

Writer's Block (LTD Edition with Bonus Disc)
Writer's Block (LTD Edition with Bonus Disc)
"The Swedish trio make their most consistent record on Writer's Block. Many songs on here like "Young Folks" or "Object of My Aflection" are instant pop jems. "Young Folks""

Magic
""Springsteen hits every right note. Magic is just like any other classic that the Boss has churned out." "You'll Be Coming Home""
Under The Black Light
Under The Black Light

Wincing the Night Away
Wincing the Night Away
"The Shins strike gold again with their third release. My only complaint is the weak closing of the album. "Sleeping Lessons""
Icky Thump
Icky Thump
"This good old Jack and Meg White team keeps on raising the bar for great rock tunes of the 21st century. The guitar playing is much more fun than 2005's Get Behind Me Satan. "You Don't Know What Love Is(You Do as Your Told)""
Ear Drum
Ear Drum
"The album that fans have been waiting for. Talib proves to be the inspirational rapper that he was on "Quality". -In The Mood"

The Reminder
The Reminder
"I think she just became one of indie rock's finest female vocalists. "1234""
Calling The World
Calling The World
"Calling the World could quite possibly be the best pop album of the year. They've made the record that Weezer should have made after "Maladroit." "When did your heart go missing?""
New Wave
New Wave
"New Wave is one of the best rock records of the year. Against Me! will be doing some serious damgage in the future. "Thrash Unreal""
T.I. Vs Tip
T.I. Vs Tip
"As T.I. states in "Help is on the way" that hip hop is dying and hes on the way to save it; is actually the truth after listening to all 18 of these great tracks. This is "King" volume 2. "You Know What It Is""
Cookies

Good Bad Not Evil

"These art rockers really know how to rock. "What Would Wolves Do?""
The Sun And The Moon
The Sun And The Moon

The Historical Conquests of Josh Ritter
The Historical Conquests of Josh Ritter
"Much more energized than his debut. Its an interesting step forward in the decade's genre of folk. "Right Moves""
