MUSIC 2007

I may be one of the last bloggers to get around to my list of top ten CDs for the year. That's okay, it's not like I'm on the cutting edge. I thought it was a really good year for music and it was hard to pare things down to the best 10. Or my favorite 10...however you want to call it. My favorite artist released a new album this year and it's quite good but it didn't make the list. Sorry, Bruce. Sorry also to Dinosaur Jr. and A.A. Bondy and Sea Wolf and Pela and Elliott Smith and Kings of Leon and John Vanderslice and Sloan and Bishop Allen (though you guys made it last year with different versions of many of the songs off your album). Here's what did make the cut...

1. Wilco/Sky Blue Sky
2. Spoon/Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga
3. New Pornographers/Challengers
4. The National/Boxer
5. Radiohead/In Rainbows
6. Arcade Fire/Neon Bible
7. The Broken West/I Can't Go On I'll Go On
8. Band of Horses/Cease to Begin
9. Okkervil River/The Stage Names
10. The Shins/Wincing the Night Away
