the top 44 albums of 2 thousand 7 (24-21)

I feel like I always have to say something before the first banner for the highest marked album of that batch appears smack dab in the middle of your screen, immediately after the initial post banner. So I guess I can say a few things about how much I love this group of albums. Everytime I look at the next 4 coming up, I wonder at what I possibly could have put in front of them. The albums on this list come from the past, or a rare genre on the list, giving me very personal experiences that stick out when I think of and listen to them. Hopefully you’ll have as much fun I had listening to these because these are 4 quality albums of 2007, and there’s 20 more coming soon.

24. kate walsh : tim’s house

I have to praise that giant zip file that comes only one time a year to serve our hunger for SXSW samples simply because of all the albums it has led me to. I heard the beginning guitar notes picked in “Your Song” and instantly started praying, praying that the voice would be at least half-way decent, when Kate Walsh sang that first note, I could tell that there was something pretty life-changing about this artist, and in peticular, that song. Months passed before I actually checked out all of Tim’s House, but I found myself (and still find myself) arguring with myself on what the best track of the album was, and I never seem to conclude anything substantial. *SONG OF THE ALBUM*: “Your Song”.

23. the forms : self/titled

This was a rather late addition to my list, but I still support my impulsive decision to throw it this high on the list. The disc has been on rotation in my recent iPod playlist, and none of it has gotten old at all. The tranquil but horrifying guitar riffs that are anchored by a soft echoing voice that can spring into calm yells to emphasize every bit of beauty coming through the headphones carries through every single track on this album. Yet each song has it’s own neat little something going on. In my humble opinion, this is a band that you will be able to rely on to release innovative and wonderfully fresh sounding music in the future. *SONG OF THE ALBUM*: “White Dot”

22. of montreal : hissing fauna, are you the destroyer?

This release garnered a lot of positive reviews and attention for this very glamourous indie outfit, and it deserved every bit of it. Of Montreal has been crafting quiet masterpieces for several years now, but on Hissing Fauna it just seems like every puzzle piece slides perfectly into place while the band shoots out harsh guitar riffs and lyrics that actually threaten and demand instead of ask. Every song has miles of twists and turns that turns the experience of the entire album into an unforgettable one on that old turntable. *SONG OF THE ALBUM*: “She’s a Rejector”

21. lil wayne : tha carter iii (the leak)

What can I say about Lil Wheezy? This year has been higher than monumental for the Louisiana-native rapper. Every croak he lets out rolls smooth as if riding down a slide while nouns adjectives and verbs twist into a cyclone of talented and intelligent rap. For instance:

“and I am stuck inside of an ashtray like a cigarette but my heart pumps gasoline, and does she know that I just crashed and burned, now here comes the smoke.”

Even if you forget about Tha Carter III’s incredible force, than you can look at Lil Wayne in 2007 from a broader view. Then you’ll probably discover his some 15 mixtapes and freestyles that he seemingly released effortlessly. Lil Wayne has been the hardest rapper working at rap and not the business this year, and he does deserve the claim he loves to say,“The Best Rapper Alive”. *SONG OF THE ALBUM*: “I Know the Future”.

other blogs have cooler music than disappear here

semi-true. That’s about the first thing I can say about that. This day has been filled with indifference and a sloppy workout for my first visit to the local Y, which I’ve had membership too? Anyway, no parties emerged from the underworld of this small town because my own house and my good friend’s house (the two major “hotspots” for underage boozing partays) have been shut down due to excessive amounts of alcohol being consumed, people and fights that sprouted from absolutely nothing, and also, the kiddies 1 and 2 years younger than my friends and I have hikes-school tomorrow. To sum it all up, I had a lotta spare time tonight, and it hit me that non was spent blogging. Well when I began a new top 44 post, I was struck with a rush of procrastination and started fumbling through my blogroll to find blogs I have not seen for ages to salvage numerous mp3 files. So I came up with some good ones, and I felt like I should show ’em off, and give you guys my top picks of the litter. But as a note, it should be marked, that D i s a p p e a r H e r e also has it’s strengths, I believe we present some noteworthy tracks as well as these other blogs do.
