Best Albums of 2007 - No.3
Siouxsie Sioux - Mantaray
A perennial favourite of mine, the Queen has finally deigned to offer us her first solo (and much anticipated) album. Brilliantly showing that she's into current music without resorting to cheap gimmicks or production tricks, and with that voice in form, Siouxsie manages to make an amazing record, full of punch, power, emotion. Pop, glam, industrial, punk, goth, cabaret, all is present here, a heady mix of a cocktail for even the hardest to please fans. Familiar sounds from her Banshees and Creatures days co-exist with brand new production ideas and her indomitable persona. Many younger ladies would kill to release such a record this year. I always loved her, now I do even more. Especially when she sings "If It Doesn't Kill You"...
"If it doesn't kill you, it will shake you
If it doesn't brake you, it will make you"
Into A Swan
Here Comes That Day - Channel 4 (How about a Bond theme song?)

Worst Albums of 2007 - No.3
Jennifer Lopez - Brave
I don't know who is the brave one here: Jennifer for releasing this record or the listener? She cannot even make the hits she used to. Tragic.
Do It Well (is she kidding?)
