> 2007 the year in review – favorite albums (best?)

I can see I am not going to get this finished anytime soon so before it gets too far into the year ….In no particular order are my favorite albums of 2007. I would like to think they are also the best albums, but that might be too presumptuous

Anberlin / Cities / Tooth and Nail

Until June / S/T / Flicker

Deas Vail / The Houses All Look the Same / Brave New World


Thrice / The Alchemy Index Vol. 1 & 2: Fire & Water / Vagrant

Thrice break out of the hardcore/screamo mold with this ambitious first installment of the Alchemy Index.

The Brothers Martin / S/T / Tooth & Nail

Brothers Ronnie and Jason bring the best of their other bands (Joy Electric and Starflyer 59) to this collaboration.

Dustin Kensrue / Please Come Home / Vagrant

Dustin’s solo debut is miles away from Thrice musically with an acoustic/alt/country sound. Lyrically the album explores life, love and faith.

Lovedrug / Everything Starts Where it Ends /

Paramore / Riot! / Fueled By Ramen

A nearly flawless pop/punk album that was fun to listen to. (and more that 500,000 others must have thought so too)

Relient K / Five Score and Seven Years Ago / Gotee

Relient K deliver their characteristically great pop/punk music and still retain their humor, but they also show the ability to branch out with the beach boys sounding intro, the country tinged “faking my own suicide and the epic closer “death bed”.

Some others favorites:

Radiohead – “In Rainbows” /The Arcade Fire – “The Neon Bible” / Falling Up “Captiva” / U2 – “The Joshua Tree” Remastered Box Set / Eisley – Combinations / Mae – “Singuality” / We Shot The Moon – “The Cougar and The Polar Bear” / Seabird – “Let Me Go On” /  The Swirling Eddies – The Midget, The Speck and the Molecule  / All Star United – Love and Radiation / Luna Halo  – S/T
