While I’m sure better music came out this year and I haven’t had a chance to really listen to a couple of albums I just
downloaded acquired (Lupe Fiasco, LCD Soundsystem, Ghostface, Wu-Tang Clan) but here are my some* of favorite albums of 2007 (in no particular order) with my favorite song from each.
“No Cars Go” by Arcade Fire from Neon Bible
“Breakin’ Up” by Rilo Kiley from Under The Blacklight
“Back To Black” by Amy Winehouse from Back to Black
(Yes, I know it really came out in 2006)
“I Feel It All” by Feist from The Reminder
“All I Need” by Radiohead from In Rainbows
“Say Hello” by Jay-Z from American Gangster
“When Your Mind’s Made Up” by Glen Hansard and Markéta Irglová from Music From The Motion Picture Once
“The Heinrich Maneuver” by Interpol from Our Love To Admire
“Flashing Lights” by Kanye West (featuring Dwele) from Graduation
“Lucky Ones” by Kevin Drew from Spirit If…
“When Everything Is New” by Little Brother from GetBack
“Burn Your Life Down” by Tegan & Sara from The Con
* I say “some” because these albums are just the ones I thought of when I decided to make this post and not some well thought out list like I was working for Rolling Stone or Pitchfork Media.
