Favorite Albums of 2007

I've been listening to lot more music compared to last year since I do so much driving for my job. The albums on this list are the ones I've been repeatedly listening to in the Mini while trying not to fall asleep on the 5 freeway. Anyone else have a list? Mike?



-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
10. Modest Mouse
We Were Dead Before the Ship Even Sank



"Who the hell made you the boss / We placed our chips in all the right spots but still lost / Any shithead who had ever walked / Could take this ship and do a much finer job / This fit like clothes made out of wasps / Oh, fuck it, I guess I lost"

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
9. Klaxons
Myths of the Near Future



"Light touch my hand, in a dream of Golden Skans, from now on / You can forget our future plans"

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
8. Arcade Fire
Neon Bible



"I'm standing on the stage / Of fear and self-doubt / It's a hollow play / But they'll clap anyway"

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
7. Beirut
The Flying Club Cup



"The pane of my window / Will flicker and glimmer / I won't leave a stitchin' behind"

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
6. Thrice
The Alchemy Index Volumes 1 & 2: Fire & Water



"And while they still sleep / I slip out through the door / But how can I leave / With my anchors ashore"

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
5. Spoon
Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga



"He never claimed to say what he says / He smells like the inside of closets upstairs / The kind where nobody goes"

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
4. Dusty Rhodes and the River Band
First You Live

If The Decemberists had spent more time listening to classic rock, The Doors and Pink Floyd they might sound something like this.



"Hello young warrior / Dressed in white / You fight with passion / And you fight with all of your might"

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
3. The Cribs
Men's Needs, Women's Needs, Whatever



"A girl's needs / Girl's needs / Just don't agree / Don't agree / With man's needs"

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

2. Radiohead
In Rainbows

They're baaaaaaaaaaaaack.



"What's the point of instruments / Words are a sawed-off shotgun"

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
1. Brand New
The Devil and God Are Raging Inside Me



"In the choir / I saw our sad Messiah / He was bored and tired of my laments / He said 'I died for you one time, but never again'"
