Best Albums of 2007 - No.9
Radiohead - In Rainbows
This must be their most famous album (maybe apart from their début one)due to the way the released it: you could download it and pay anything you'd like for it. But this is not the reason it is so high on my personal list. It is one of their best albums ever. Period. Lyrical, emotional, paranoid, romantic, intimate, devastatingly beautiful at times, it has all the hallmarks of a classic masterpiece all over it. And I dare you to listen to "Nude" and not shed a tear.
Jigsaw Falling Into Place
Nude live in Bill Graham Civic Auditorium, San Francisco, April 2, 1998 (yes! It is that old!)
Worst Albums of 2007 - No.9
Dave Gahan - Hourglass
Not even his return to synthesizers after the electric guitars of his first solo album, "Paper Monsters", is enough to make this a good album. Poor Dave, he is simply not able to make even a decent record by himself. Martin Gore must be rubbing his hands in joy listening to this (if he can stand it that is). Enough.
