Getintothis presents a rundown of the top cuts of 2007.
What a year. So many great records, so little time to absorb them all.
The ones that appear in this list are a mere fraction of the superb sounds that have whirred around my head over the last 12 months.
There’s been much to savour, not least in the world of electronica and dance which has far outshone guitar-based music in 2007.
Over the next five days I’ll be counting down my top 50 – it has been a complete ballache to compile, and choosing what to leave out has been far harder than what to keep in.
I hope you’ll add to the discussion and leave your own thoughts and recommendations.
50. The Black Lips: Good Bad Not Evil
49. Dungen: Tito Bitar
45. Assemble Head In Sunburst Sound: Ekranoplan
44. Six Organs of Admittance: Shelter From The Ash
43. Arcade Fire: Neon Bible
After their remarkable debut Funeral, their sophomore effort couldn’t help but feel a tad anti-climactic, that said there’s much to enjoy and in Ocean of Noise they’ve a genuine classic to add to their canon.
42. Kiln: Dusker
41. Citay: Little Kingdom
