Albums of 2007, part 2

A Listmania! list by Sick Mouthy (Exeter, Devon)
(VINE VOICE)   
 
Andorra
1.  Andorra by Caribou
The list author says:
  "Fourth album, in which Dan Snaith moves from laptop-jazz-folk-electronica into (almost) full-on psychedelic guitar pop - think The Zombies, etcetera. Singing, songs, excellence."
£6.99   Used & New from: £1.89
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (7 customer reviews)

Basquiat Strings with Seb Rochford
2.  Basquiat Strings with Seb Rochford by Stanley Clarke
The list author says:
  "5-piece jazz string ensemble backed by Seb Roachford on drums; not dissimilar to a jazzified take on Final Fantasy. 3 covers and 6 very good original, ranging from emlancholic to enervated. Very good."
£10.26   Used & New from: £2.80
5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (3 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

Fraud
3.  Fraud by Fraud
The list author says:
  "Lots of potential in this debut from Acoustic Ladyland stablemates; they play it straighter than AL, but that's OK.  Brass, drums, bass, occasional electronics, and some decent jazz tunes."
£11.80   Used & New from: £6.99
4.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (2 customer reviews)

Twilight Of The Innocents
4.  Twilight Of The Innocents by Ash
The list author says:
  "It's a shame this has attracted so little attention, because it's actually a masterclass in hooky pop punk growers, and the Downpatrick trio's best album in years. Excellent production. Give it time."
£7.99   Used & New from: £0.24
4.1 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (18 customer reviews)

Future Rock
5.  Future Rock by Strategy
The list author says:
  "Dubby house / disco / electronica / postrock. "Balearic", hahaha. Beautiful, corrupted, fifth-hand. Very good."
£12.93   Used & New from: £3.99
5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (1 customer review)

Wrong Meetings
6.  Wrong Meetings by Two Lone Swordsmen
The list author says:
  "Double disc set including part 2, alluded to in part 1 of my 2007 list, and the rare, previousdly vinyl-only part one. Both superlative!"
Used & New from: £13.77

Desire [Us Import]
7.  Desire [Us Import] by Pharoahe Monch
The list author says:
  "Final third gets a bit Luther Vandross, but when Pharoahe's angry, political, and covering Public Enemy he's very, very good. Beats err on the side of soulful caution, but the man can rhyme."
£6.94   Used & New from: £4.64
4.1 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (8 customer reviews)

Rocket Ep
8.  Rocket Ep by Working for a Nuclear Free City
The list author says:
  "The most talented and eclectic bunch of psychedelic kids to emerge from Manchester in years. New Beta Band. But more. Awesome."
£4.21   Used & New from: £0.99

Fourteen Autumns And Fifteen Winters
9.  Fourteen Autumns And Fifteen Winters by The Twilight Sad
The list author says:
  "Intense, strung-out, maximalist, poetic Scottish alt.rock, of the type Idlewild would love to be able to produce."
£7.99   Used & New from: £5.25
4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (12 customer reviews)

asa breed
10.  asa breed by Peter Bjorn and John
The list author says:
  "Lot of hype behind this eclectic electronic dance pop - it doesn't quite meet expectations, being a little too 'produced for iPods', but has some great songs nonetheless."
£9.99   Used & New from: £0.74
4.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (1 customer review)

If Symptoms Persist Kill Your Doctor
11.  If Symptoms Persist Kill Your Doctor by Six By Seven
The list author says:
  "Excellent and unexpected return to their droney, minimal roots. Really amazingly produced; one for the headphones and the hi-fi, not the jukebox, and rightly so."
£4.99   Used & New from: £2.97

Five Roses
12.  Five Roses by Miracle Fortress
The list author says:
  "Modern electro-acoustic shoegazing-with-harmonies like only the Canadians seem to make well these days; if you like MBV, Eno, Beach Boys, you'll like this. Simple as that."
£5.95   Used & New from: £0.45
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (5 customer reviews)

Hey Venus!
13.  Hey Venus! by Super Furry Animals
The list author says:
  "Surprisingly good return(ish) to concise, pop songwriting. A little tepid at times, but more minimal and tuneful than they've been for years. A major label didn't suit them."
£5.00   Used & New from: £0.89
4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (26 customer reviews)

White Chalk
14.  White Chalk by PJ Harvey
The list author says:
  "Brief, intimate set of piano-led tunes from one of the best artist's this country's ever produced.  Completely different to anything she's done before, but just as brilliant."
£5.99   Used & New from: £1.86
4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (64 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

Businessmen & Ghosts
15.  Businessmen & Ghosts by Working for a Nuclear Free City
The list author says:
  "Double CD set combining debut album & Rocket EP with an armful of new tracks - unrelentingly brilliant and eclectic psychedelic rock/dance/pop/abstract. Flows like two albums. Superb."
£32.01   Used & New from: £31.99

Flying Club Cup
16.  Flying Club Cup by Beirut
The list author says:
  "Second album of idiosyncratic, beautifully-arranged folk-pop oddness from prolific naif genius and friends; compellingly out-of-time."
£14.35   Used & New from: £6.44
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (15 customer reviews)

Walls
17.  Walls by Apparat
The list author says:
  "Fantastically produced, eclectic techno / shoegaze / discopunk / ambient / pop / electronica / whatever. The tunes are neary as good as the mind blowing production. Amazing on good headphones."
£8.57
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (4 customer reviews)
