Best albums of 2007



Here is another BEST of 2007 list. Really any of these top ten records could have been number one. Many of these bands have been my top pick in the past. I just felt Blonde Redhead had done something very artistic, and it was the best album they have done. Bat For Lashes was the best debut album. A Place To Bury Strangers and Klaxons were close too. LCD Soundsystem and Burial and UNKLE made great records too. And all down the line. Many records I haven't heard yet, so I hesitate to include them here.
