2007 in review

So I missed you all last week. Sorry. It’s been a rought one. so I know that I am supposed to be reviewing albums and what is to come is gonna frustrate the fuck out of you my new, loyal reader. but that’s just gonna have to stand.

I am watching “Zodiac” at the moment, uploading two new CD’s I just got in the mail and thinking about this year in music. It’s been an interesting year for music (and for me too). There have been a lot of good records, but not many GREAT ones.

But anyway, I’ve been thinking. I am holding two new CD’s here that I was waiting on in the mail. There is something about them. Something about how they feel, sitting here waiting to be listened to. They might be the CD’s I’ve been waiting to blow me out of the water. They just feel that way.

I like it when music surprises me. It’s one of the reason’s why I like music, why I try to appreciate a lot of different types of music. But this year man, I don’t know. Everything that’s on my top 5 this year so far really came out of the wood work. None of them are albums I really expected, or things I listened to before this year.

So anyway – here is my list of everything I have aquired this year – lots of surprised. It is comprehensive of things I bought and things people shared with me or some interesting things I found on the internet for free (Ben Lee, Raidohead). I may purchase the new album by Maritime and pick up the new Statehood, but I may weight for this next year. We shall see. Shit comming up soon with reviews of this stuff and my favorites for the year that will no doubt surprise you.
