Your Ears Should Be Burning

I listened to a lot of different music in 2007, and for the most part this list is completely arbitrary, depending on my mood . . . except for the Top 3, which are set in stone.

Some runners-up that I enjoyed last year included new albums by Feist, Justice, Jens Lekman, Travis, The Bird and the Bee, and The Field. I also discovered some music in 2007 that had actually been released in 2006, including Guillemots, The Kooks, and Kate Havnevik, but these cannot really go on this list.

Anyway . . .

My Completely Arbitrary List of the
Best Albums of 2007

15. Idealism -- Digitalism

14. Soundboy Rock -- Groove Armada

13. The Good, The Bad, and the Queen

12. The Shepherd's Dog -- Iron and Wine

11. One Good Summer -- California Snow Story

10. Everybody -- The Sea and Cake
