2007 - the best albums

since the old thread is gone, how about a new one?

here's mine list so far.

2007

1. Logh - North
2. Dälek - Abandoned Language
3. Radiohead - In Rainbows
4. Neurosis - Given To The Rising
5. Jesu - Conqueror
6. Porcupine Tree - Fear Of The Blank Planet
7. Clutch - From Beale Street To Oblivion
8. Mayhem - Ordo Ad Chao
9. HIM - Venus Doom
10. Jesu - Pale Sketches

i liked new Amorphis and Novembre albums, but i don't think they'll make it to the final list.

its great, has some very nice touches (wash it all away, tiny universes).

justin says it isnt "official" jesu release, more of a collection of leftover tracks, but they are very good whatsoever.

It's really hard to choose, since there have been so many good releases this year; I feel like I'm leaving out some very worthy albums. Regardless, this list is subject to change before the year is up.

Abigail's Ghost- Selling Insincerity
Alcest- Souvenirs D'un Autre Monde
Blackfield- Blackfield II
De/Vision- Noob
Explosions In The Sky- All Of A Sudden I Miss Everyone
M83- Digital Shades, Vol. 1
Nine Inch Nails- Year Zero
Pain- Psalms Of Extinction
Rumskib- Rumskib
Type O Negative- Dead Again

I'm not actually sure if Jesu's Lifeline is good or not. Jarboe's visitation makes it better though. The stuff just doesn't evolve anymore and it sounds quite much like Conqueror which was a disappointment.

Porcupine Tree, Ulver and Neurosis have pwned the year so far. Can't say anything 'bout the new Novembre because I haven't heard it yet

Great albums, all of them

A very good year for music...

My Favorites:
Nine Inch Nails - Year Zero (not as good as The Fragile, but still good by "pop music" standards)
Alcest - Souvenirs D'un Autre Monde (VERY good album for anyone who like shoegaze)
Jesu - Conquerer (This guy put out FOUR releases this year! ALL of them were awesome)
Porcupine Tree - Fear Of A Blank Planet (still in love with this one)
Radiohead - In Rainbows (wasn't expecting this to be released this year, amazing, as always)

A few others that didn't QUITE make my top list:
Between The Buried And Me - Colors (still not sure what to think of this one)
Dark Tranquility - Fiction (these guys are SO DAMN CONSISTANT)
Devin Townsend - Ziltoid (FAR better then I was expecting)
Katatonia - Live Consternation (good to hear them live, but I wanted LFDGD stuff on here!)
Novembre - The Blue (DENSE album, still soaking it up)
Ulver - Shadows Of The Sun (one of the darkest albums I have ever heard...)
Puscifer - V Is For Vagina (oh boy...)

Peace

Rorix

Well 2005 was the year of new albums by Porcupine Tree, Ulver, Opeth, Red Sparowes, Meshuggah, Gojira and Giant Squid so I guess it wasn't that bad year after all..
