Re: Forum Poll: The Best Albums and Songs of 2007

Oops... I find no record of songs from the Besnard Lakes are the Dark Horse being released prior to 2007. That means I might have to repeat my votes for the excellent song Disaster this year. I hope my mistake didn't skew the 2006 vote totals too much!

Only one mention of Deerhunter's Cryptograms so far?

I know they are likely to qualify an album and a song for 2008, but this lesser-known album is almost as good as Microcastle (and better for fans of ambient music).

My list is about 4 years old, and I realize how much my tastes have changed while I re-listen to those albums.

Re: Forum Poll: The Best Albums and Songs of 2007

Note -- if L.E.S. Artistes is determined to be 2008, you can remove it and bump everything else up one in the songs list.

Re: Forum Poll: The Best Albums and Songs of 2007

@nicolas:

Funnily enough Magic has had the opposite effect on me. It was nowhere near my top 10 in 2007 and now it's my favourite Springsteen album of the 2000s. Nice to see Stephan, Slick and Rocky Raccoon also showing it some love.

@sonofsamiam:

Very attractive lists, as always... even if they're later than usual. For a moment there I was worried that you were doing an nj and deserting us. Pleased you're still posting your lists.

Interesting lists by everyone so far. Somehow this year seems quite open.

According to wikipedia: "L.E.S. Artistes" received attention from Internet media in 2007" But the first commercial or official(?) release was on March 25, 2008. So let's say the song is eligible next month.

The Spotify link for the songs list

My favourite Spanish song of 2007: Xhelazz's "Solo son vidas"

The idea came to me in March 2007. We were doing the 1990s poll and my #1 song for 1992 was a Spanish song, Kiko Veneno's "En un Mercedes blanco". I decided to wrote a few words to give some context to my non-Spanish friends of the Forum and translate the lyrics of that song. You can see that first post here. It was only two paragraphs long but it seems that I got pleased with the results, because I immediately went back to my 1990 and 1991 lists to find out which ones were my favourite Spanish songs and I did the same. Then I thought about selecting a Spanish song per year for the upcoming polls with an only restriction, I wasn't allowed to repeat artists. I truly enjoyed the making of the list that I finally posted in Rate Your Music in early 2008. Then I made a double mp3 CD with these songs (the second CD included my Top 10 albums) that I planned to send first to Henrik by mail (and then to a handful of friends including Nicolas) when I realized that I should include a song from 2007 (Bunbury & Vegas' "Bravo" was until then an apt ending).
So I waited for the Rockdelux March issue (it includes from 1999 the best Spanish songs of the year as selected by the readers of the magazine). When I finally got the RDL compilation I played it on my way to work waiting for the perfect closer for my compilation. There were good numbers on that CD (some of them I knew previously, some of them not) but none of them was good enough to sound after "Bravo". I was getting somber and somber when I finally listened to the last song of the compilation, "Sólo son vidas" ("These Are Only Lives") from an unknown (to me) rapper called Xhelazz and I knew that it was the song I was looking for.
The real name of Xhelazz is Mario Celimendiz. He was part of a hip hop crew from Zaragoza called Cloaka Company (Sewer Company) that released an only album, Verso Municcione (2003). The other MCs and DJs coming from this band released solo works before Xhelazz, but it was his first (and last so far) album, "El soñador elegido" ("The Chosen Dreamer", 2007) the more successful release coming from this crew.
The chosen song, "Sólo son vidas", was only an album track not released as a single, it was "La soledad elegida" ("The Chosen Loneliness") the one promoted by a video-clip. But for me that song is much better than the rest of the songs on the album. Xhelazz describes a lot of different characters with short sentences and doing this he accurately portraits the Spanish society of the early XXI Century, not hiding problems of violence, unemployment, sexism or immigration. Not too different to the problems of other European or American democracies. That was the reason for me to be the perfect closer (well, then, now there are songs from 2008 to 2010 too). The song that opened the compilation, Raimon's "Diguem No", depicted also a black picture of the Spain of its time (during Franco dictatorship) but then still there was a (quite naïve) hope of change ("Let's say no, we are not part of this world"). Now, 45 years later, the democracy and freedom are here, but the picture of the Spain of today is still quite devastating. And with a difference, now there is no place for hope, we are all involved. "These are only lives / Have you noticed how similar are to yours and mine?".

Besides, my album list in progress has changed and keeps on changing

Re: Forum Poll: The Best Albums and Songs of 2007

I'm just not a big fan of 2007 I guess. The albums weren't that great but the singles released in '07 might be worse other than #1 (which might be 2006!). I blame it on the year Animal Collective became relatively huge, ruining indie rock for a few years.

Singles:

1. Robyn With Kleerup- With Every Heartbeat
2. Super Furry Animals- Run-Away
3. The National- Fake Empire
4. Glasvegas- Daddy's Gone
5. The Shins- Phantom Limb
6. Okkervil River- Our Life Is Not a Movie or Maybe
7. Jonathan Coulton- Still Alive
8. The White Stripes- Rag and Bone
9. Justice- D.A.N.C.E.
10. Arcade Fire- No Cars Go

Kanye West, Boys Noize and Burial fell short of making my list.
Good year overall, with an easy #1.
I don't get how some people considered Good News for People Who Love Bad News as a letdown, but We Were Dead Before the Ship Evan Sank really is.

I really hope "The Past is a Grotesque Animal" can be the "Creator has a Masterplan" of the 00s, making it to final round thanks to some strong support !


Didn't see this comment earlier but I completely agree, and that's a good comparison for it. "The Past is a Grotesque Animal" just passed "All My Friends" to be my number one for this year. The lyrical performance on that one is probably my favorite of a decade where most of my favorite songs are great for reasons other than their lyrics.

Re: Favorite Albums and Songs of 2007

2007 is the year I joined the AM forum. It's the year I started listening to a lot of new records; actually more than 60 are ranked, but here's the top 40
On a more personal side, this is the year my son Basile was born. I remember that I was listening to DJ Shadow on the way to the hospital.

The great last minute discovery of the month was The National. 2 hours ago it was at #19 (I hadn't heard it for 4 years !). Great record. I remember that back in 2007 I found it too gloomy. I must have gotten used indie sound...

About the #1 I'm not gonna start another debate (see the Wilco thread).
Josh Ritter should be heard by any singer-songwriter fan. It's a great collection of songs (especially the first half).

Re: Forum Poll: The Best Albums and Songs of 2007

Can't believe "Sky Blue Sky" lost to Panda Bear !

ahh this forum...

Re: Forum Poll: The Best Albums and Songs of 2007

Every song from “In Rainbows” received at least one vote on our Top 20s (except the brief but beautiful, Nick-Drake-styled, “Faust Arp”). I would have expected “15 Step” or “Jigsaw Falling into Place” getting into the Top 10 but the inclusion of “Reckoner” instead look quite surprising to me.

On a side note, it’s quite sad that any Vampire Weekend song finally broke into the Top 10 (while their first album got serious options to go to the #1 of 2008, with permission from Fleet Foxes). Probably the dispersion of votes between the different songs (“A-Punk”, “Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa”, “M79”, “Mansard Roof” and “Oxford Comma” received votes), I just hope that nobody got confused about the date releases, Petri made it absolutely clear.

Alright, I voted for most of the top ten songs, but this is ridiculous. This song is so good!

But great showing for "The Past Is a Grotesque Animal," and Panda Bear>Wilco was an excellent result.

This is the best result of the poll! But to each his own.

I agree about Vampire Weekend - their debut is one of the best singles album of the decade, so it's weird not to have a single representative in the final. Unfortunately, I don't think a consensus has been reached among their contenders, which leads to a lot of vote splitting.

I was hoping there'd be at least one unpitchforkly correct album passing through, but I'm afraid that's not gonna happen until the end of that decade poll

Re: Forum Poll: The Best Albums and Songs of 2007

^Oracular Spectacular made the cut, Pitchfork didn't exactly love that album.

Well that must be the exception that confirms the rule

Re: Forum Poll: The Best Albums and Songs of 2007

I don't think it's being 'Pitchforkly correct' that's important so much as 'Critically correct'. Keep in mind the White Stripes easily got two albums through, and Pitchfork hates them.

But, the ones near the top of the AM list have a huge advantage, because people start their exploration from the top and go down rather than a more directed search to the sort of music more fitting their individual tastes.

Though I don't agree with nicolas either, Elephant was 84th and White Blood Cells 12th on Pitchfork's end of decade list.

On our list I would only call All That You Can't Leave Behind, Back to Black and Oracular Spectacular (and maybe Dear Catastrophe Waitress) "UnPitchforkly correct", but I'm also pretty sure that if they had liked MGMT, lot of people would have gone "hey, that's typically the kind of hipster music Pitchfork always go for".
But it is not our fault if Pitchfork liked most of the best albums of the decade.

And well, some albums really loved by the fork did not make our final list, and by far : Sung Tongs, Madvillainy, Endless Summer, Geogaddi, Rooty... did not stand any serious chance here.

Edit : forgot about Coldplay, THAT'S unpitchforkly correct.

True and true.
This final list is our lowest common denominator. I think the individual lists are somtimes more interesting.

Yeah, I don't think you can say Pitchfork hates the White Stripes with those kind of results. They just don't like them as much as they should.

A note for Henrik about alphabetical order for Spanish bands: in Spain the articles (el/la/los/las, all of them equivalent to the English "the") should be excluded from the alphabetical order, so "Los Planetas" should be filed under P as "Planetas, Los" and not under L. Same for "Guincho, El", "Del Río, Los" and even non-Spanish bands with Spanish names as "Campesinos!, Los".

Yes, I know. I should probably change these for the next update. What about The El Dorados?

Maybe Dorados, El, The?
