As 2007 is drawing to an end the “best of 2007-lists” are starting overflowing last.fm. This year, I have chosen to join the hype. However, instead of naming the year’s best albums I have made a list of the best songs.
2007 has been a year of amazing discoveries for me. In 2006 I discovered a crazy little thing called post-rock
and this year I have further refined and extended my taste within this amazing genre. It has been a great post-rock year with a lot of good releases by both the bigger names and the more underground bands.
This year I have also discovered the sludge
genre. While 2007 has been my year of probing the post-rock spectrum, 2008 will probably see a lot of new sludge albums into my music collection. And although my favourite sludge bands Isis
, Cult of Luna
and Mouth of the Architect
didn’t release anything this year, this was compensated by a lot of other, smaller bands. The new Minsk
release alone made 2007 a great year for sludge, everything else has been a nice extra.
