The Idolator Pop Poll 2007: Top 100 Albums and Tracks

The Idolator Pop Poll for 2007 is finally up (http://pop.idolator.com/)! (Yes, the title has been changed from last year’s Jackin’ Pop, a cheekily direct jab at Pazz & Jop.) This year, 454 ballots were submitted; Henrik, I’d imagine the volume of responses here gives this poll more weight than others.

Here are the top 100 albums:

Re: The Idolator Pop Poll 2007: Top 100 Albums and Tracks

I should probably hear that Umbrella song. It's the one pop song this year that's getting unilateral praise.

Of course, I felt the same about Since U Been Gone a few years ago and didn't like that.

Re: The Idolator Pop Poll 2007: Top 100 Albums and Tracks

BillAdama- "Umbrella" really isn't all that. It is catchy, but not an enduring classic, in my opinion. The pop song that should be unilaterally adored from this year is Robyn's "With Every Heartbeat", if you ask me!
