Rockdelux Best of 2007

As a said last year I got a subscription and I receive the magazine at about the second or third week of the month. But I found the international album list in a forum (Muzikalia) and I decided to post it. I don’t know if there’s a mistake. I’ll post the Spanish albums list and the songs list later when I receive the “physical” magazine.

7. M.I.A. “Kala”
8. BRIGHT EYES “Cassadaga”
9. RICKIE LEE JONES “The Sermon on Exposition Boulevard”
10. CALLE 13 “Residente o visitante”
11. ROBERT WYATT “Comicopera”
12. ELVIS PERKINS “Ash Wednesday”
13. VON SÜDENFES “Tromatic Reflexxions”

22. DIZZEE RASCAL “Maths + English”
23. BEIRUT “The Flying Club Cup”
24. ELLIOTT SMITH “New Moon”
25. FENNESZ SAKAMOTO “Cendre”

32. MALCOLM MIDDLETON “A Brighter Beat”
33. ANDY PALACIO & THE GARIFUNA COLLECTIVE “Wátina”
34. GRINDERMAN “Grinderman”
35. JESSE SKYES & THE SWEET HEREAFTER “Like Love Lust & the Open Halls of the Soul”
36. YOUSSOU N'DOUR “Rokku Mi Rokka”
37. RICHARD HAWLEY “Lady's Bridge”
38. OKKERVIL RIVER “The Stage Names”

46. SOULSAVERS “It's Not How Far You Fall, It’s the Way You Land”
47. OM “Pilgrimage”
48. JENS LEKMAN “Night Falls over Kortedala”
49. THE FIELD “From Here We Go Sublime”
50. MÚM “Go Go Smear the Poison Ivy”

The list is at least quite different to other lists published so far, with great variety and some choices from Latin America not so usual in the end-of-year lists (10, 27 and 33). I haven’t heard the complete album of Calle 13 but some songs are interesting. Just see http://es.youtube.com/watch?v=E3qY7KjrDu0 (by the way I don’t know how to post a youtube video, if some of you know how please let me know it).

Re: Rockdelux Best of 2007

Take it from a Latin music critic: Calle 13 are the best and most important Spanish language musicians on the planet...
