2007 Top-20 Countdown - No.5

Best Albums 2007 - No.5

Burial - Untrue

Returning this year with his sophomore effort, "Untrue", Burial, a still "anonymous" British artist, sets again the bar high for dub step music. His appeal though is not limited to fans of the genre. The dark, atmospheric music, inherent sadness, rotting decay that pervades the album, will send shivers down the spine of any listener. The strange thing is that, although it resonates as a very British record and experience, it makes me feel as if it is the soundtrack to my life. Genius and moving.

There are no video clips, just listen to the music:


Ghost Hardware

In McDonalds

Worst Albums of 2007 - No.5

Babyshambles - Shotter's Nation

When one thinks that being constantly drugged and making out with a famous model is reason enough to be taken seriously, things like this album happen. Enough.
