Album of the year

Discussion in 'CycleChat Cafe' started by laurence, 19 Dec 2007.

  1. i won't be compiling any kind of list, just interested to see what other people rate as the best album of the year.

    mine would be the Cherry Ghost album. special mention to Feist for a fine record and Joseph Arthur for two good, if slightly bewildering, CDs. Buffalo Tom came back with a good record and the Josh Rouse one is good.

    Can it be an album I bought this year or does it have to have been released this year?

    If it's the latter I have no idea.

    afraid it has to be released this year... otherwise Midlake might have got it for me, after a late charge.
     
  6. Erm ... Damage (Jon Spencer Blues Explosion) - might have been last year, on reflection.
    Or Neon Bible (Arcade Fire).
    More as I think of them.

    Neon Bible - The Arcade Fire was a pleasant surprise.

    Cherry Ghost- Thirst for Romance has its moments.

    Radiohead - In Rainbows, ditto.

    Wilco - Sky Blue Sky, back on form.

    In Rainbows is the only album i could recommend to anyone this year. The cribs album is worth a listen as well, but thats about it.
