2007 : A Year in Review

These are in my opinion the best 20 albums, EP’s and singles released in the year 2007.
Ofcourse one always discovers a new band or CD an extended time after the original release, so this list is by no means flawless, but it’s damn close :
The Best Albums of 2007 (revisited, 01/01/2009)

25 : Shipwreck A.D. – Abyss  (hardcore)
24 : Distance – My Demons  (dubstep)
23 : Nadja – Thaumogenesis (doom/ambient)
22 : Maserati – Inventions for the New Season (postrock)
21 : Jesu – Sun Down / Sun Rise EP (metal/electronica)
20 : The Angelic Process – Weighing Souls with Sand (doom)
19 : Om – Pilgrimage  (stoner)
18 : Bloc Party – A Weekend in the City (indy)
17 : Nadja – Base Fluid (Remastered)  (ambient/doom)
16 : Oceansize – Frames  (postrock)
15 : Various Artists – Box of Dub & Future Dub Vol. I  (dubstep)
14 :  Explosions in the Sky – All of a Sudden I miss Everyone (postrock)
13 : Pelican – City of Echoes (metal)
12 : Blacklisted – Peace on Earth, War on Stage EP (hardcore)
11 : Aereogramme – My Heart has a wish that you would not Go (postrock)

10 : Neurosis – Given to the Rising  (metal)

09 : Pinch – Underwater Dancehall (dubstep)


08 :
Jesu – Lifeline EP (metal/electronica)


07 :
Zozobra – Harmonic Tremors  (stoner)


06 :
Rosetta – Wake/lift (metal)

05 : Nadja – Touched (Remastered) (doom/ambient)

04 : Jesu – Pale Sketches (metal/electronica)

03 : Dälek – Abandoned Language  (alt hiphop)

02 : Burial – Untrue  (dubstep/ambient)

01 : Jesu – Conqueror  (metal/electronica)

Again Jesu top the list, again before Burial at number #2. Dälek rounds out the varied top 3. Jesu‘s second full length of 2K7, Pale Sketches, was originally at the top spot but I switched it with Conqueror which has proven to be a real grower.  Nadja rounds out the top 5.  New at number 6 is Rosetta whom I only discovered in 2008.
