2007 might just be my favorite year for music releases this decade. Unfortunately, many, many great albums were left out of this list. It was pretty hard leave them out, but I couldn't press the little blue "Publish" button without any of the following albums on the list:
A. LCD Soundsystem - Sound of Silver
B. Radiohead - In Rainbows
C. Arcade Fire - Neon Bible
D. Spoon - Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga
E. M.I.A. - Kala
F. Panda Bear - Person Pitch
G. Animal Collective - Strawberry Jam
H. of Montreal - Hissing Fauna, Are You The Destroyer?
I. Kanye West - Graduation
J. Amy Winehouse - Back To Black
Albums we love but didn't make the shortlist: The Cool by Lupe Fiasco, From Here We Go Sublime by The Field, Untrue by Burial, Raising Sand by Robert Plant and Alison Krauss, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend by Miranda Lambert, Mirrored by Battles, Favorite Worst Nightmare by Arctic Monkeys, Let's Stay Friends by Les Savy Fave, 23 by Blonde Redhead, The Shepard's Dog by Iron & Wine, Boxer by The National, The Reminder by Feist, among others. This list was way too long.
