The 111 Best Albums of 2007



This was a big slugfest between the top bands (Modest Mouse, Wilco, Radiohead, Spoon, White Stripes, and Bright Eyes). The Number One band changed with every new vote. Modest Mouse comes out on top (the second time in 4 years) by a last minute ballet.

Lots of really good music on this year's list. I've discovered some very quality albums all through-out the list, even at the very bottom.

Thanks to everyone who voted and start keeping track of those 2008 albums! (And remember, if you don't like the list...the only one you have to blame is yourself)

Enjoy the list and try to find something new you've never heard.
