I thought that 2007 wasn’t entirely bad but somewhat unremarkable as far as music was concerned. In particular, not that many great new bands appeared and quite likely only the albums of !!! and Tokyo Police Club will stick for being new, fun and interesting. While many other bands offered new albums this year as well and a number of them were quite good, none of that sparked fresh new enthusiasm as discovering a new band would do.
And thus, I’d have to settle on Coolest album: Tokyo Police Club – A Lesson in Crime; Best Musical Moment: Arcade Fire playing Neon Bible and Wake Up for Les Concerts à Emporter; End-of-year addiction: Sigur Rós’ live recording of Von on their Heim CD or Heima video.
Let me know which great bands I missed out on and ‘see’ you next year…
