My Fav Albums of 2007

A Listmania! list by Amplified Man (Manchester)
 
The Cloud of Unknowing
1.  The Cloud of Unknowing by James Blackshaw
The list author says:
  "Wow. Stunning album. James Blackshaw's intricate 12 string folk ragas opened up a whole new style of music for me, and a whole new style of playing guitar!"
9.90   Used & New from: 6.08
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (4 customer reviews)

Given To The Rising [Limited Edition]
2.  Given To The Rising [Limited Edition] by Neurosis
The list author says:
  "Neurosis prove to us once again that they're still one of the best metal bands in the world with Given to the Rising. Crushing, emotive, dark, textural and completely brilliant."
25.43   Used & New from: 6.79
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (8 customer reviews)

Down III: Over The Under
3.  Down III: Over The Under by Down
The list author says:
  "I wasn't keen on this when I first heard it but my word was it a grower! Still not as good as their first but they've matured in their songcraft and eclecticism. Riffs anyone?"
9.99   Used & New from: 6.09
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (30 customer reviews)

The Blackening
4.  The Blackening by Machine Head
The list author says:
  "2007 was a fantastic year for metal. Machine Head proved this; talk about a comeback! No posturing or choruses here; just riff, after riff, after riff, after riff......"
5.00   Used & New from: 2.38
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (129 customer reviews)

Burning Off Impurities
5.  Burning Off Impurities by Grails
The list author says:
  "Grails are one of the best instrumental groups around. Every song is different, every song is wonderfully played and concieved. A criminally overlooked and understated band."
11.47   Used & New from: 4.00
4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (3 customer reviews)

None Shall Pass
6.  None Shall Pass by Aesop Rock
The list author says:
  "Aesop Rock came back with a bang too. A lot more playful than his angry Bazooka Tooth album, and a lot more optimistic than Labour Days. Packed full of quality hip hop tunes."
6.99   Used & New from: 5.74
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (4 customer reviews)

Skallander
7.  Skallander by Skallander
The list author says:
  "Brilliant  modern, querky folk album. Skallander were one of my best musical discoveries in 2007."
11.08   Used & New from: 3.99
4.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (2 customer reviews)

Everything Last Winter
8.  Everything Last Winter by Fields
The list author says:
  "Fantastic melancholy folky rock album. Fields would usually be a bit too (dare I say) mainstream sounding for me, but theres so much depth to these tracks you'll hear new things with every listen."
8.00   Used & New from: 0.01
4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (5 customer reviews)

AGE ETERNAL
9.  AGE ETERNAL by Middian
The list author says:
  "With the demise of Yob a couple of years ago, us doom metal fans were pining for Mike Scheidt's amazing psychedelic riffery and schizophrenic vocal attack......then he dropped Middian on us....."
19.82   Used & New from: 6.58
5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (1 customer review)

From Beale Street to Oblivion
10.  From Beale Street to Oblivion by Clutch
The list author says:
  "Clutch let their unbelievably high standard slip slightly with Beale Street.... but that still amounts to quite a lot! Catchy, groovy, brilliantly enjoyable and clever rock album."
13.95   Used & New from: 6.85
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (14 customer reviews)

Situation
11.  Situation by Buck 65
The list author says:
  "Buck 65, the Tom Waits of hip hop, doesn't disappoint with his follow up to the (bizarre) Secret House Against the World album. Notable return to form. Clever, memorable and catchy."
10.05   Used & New from: 0.64
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (2 customer reviews)

Untrue
12.  Untrue by Burial
The list author says:
  "Burial was an amazing surprise for me. I don't like dub-step do I? Irresitably dark, melancholy and introspective underground electronic music. Something possibly a bit special."
10.54   Used & New from: 5.92
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (60 customer reviews)

Somera Sol
13.  Somera Sol by Brant Bjork
The list author says:
  "Brant Bork; one-time Kyuss and Fu Manchu drummer, drops by again with another hazy, relaxing summer rock album and doesn't disappoint."
27.44

City Of Echoes
14.  City Of Echoes by Pelican
The list author says:
  "A  controversial one; shorter tracks & more focused playing. Not as good as the EP or Australasia but better than the massively overrated The Fire In Our Throats. THAT bass tone is to die for...."
16.95   Used & New from: 6.99
3.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (5 customer reviews)

Shelter From The Ash
15.  Shelter From The Ash by Six Organs of Admittance
The list author says:
  "Ben Chansy also returns more focussed. Shelter from the Ash contains more traditionally arranged and cohesive folk songs, but the psychedelic, hazy vibe is still present."
10.88   Used & New from: 6.98
4.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (1 customer review)

A Love of Shared Disasters
16.  A Love of Shared Disasters by Crippled Black Phoenix
The list author says:
  "A strange, eerie concoction of old english folk and post rock a-la Mogwai/Explosions in the Sky. Definitely worth a listen."
11.41   Used & New from: 8.95
5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (2 customer reviews)

Pilgrimage
17.  Pilgrimage by Om
The list author says:
  "I was disappointed with this compared with the previous two albums. But after seeing 'Bhima's Theme' live, Pilgrimage took on a new light. Bhima's Theme is worth the album price alone."
8.68   Used & New from: 4.71
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (4 customer reviews)

Death Is This Communion
18.  Death Is This Communion by High On Fire
The list author says:
  "The massively praised High On Fire return to us once again with more ferocious pummelling and soundling better than ever. Still doesn't reach the high water mark of The Art of Self Defence..."
7.75   Used & New from: 5.45
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (8 customer reviews)

The Western Lands
19.  The Western Lands by Gravenhurst
The list author says:
  "Another great discovery for me. A worthy collection of cold, melancholy folk rock tracks. Stays with you long after listening...."
8.70   Used & New from: 3.87
4.1 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (9 customer reviews)

Witchcult Today
20.  Witchcult Today by Electric Wizard
The list author says:
  "After that terrible 'We Live; album of a couple of years ago, EWiz return with a new vigour. Witchcult is very familiar and formulaic sounding but who cares!?"
12.01   Used & New from: 6.14
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (9 customer reviews)

Hibernaculum [CD + DVD]
21.  Hibernaculum [CD + DVD] by Earth
The list author says:
  "Dylan Carlson is one of undergound metal's very brightest visionaries. With the invention of 'drone' in the early nineties to Earth's mesmerising recent reincarnation.... I love it all; great stuff."
10.88   Used & New from: 5.74
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (5 customer reviews)

Phantom Limb
22.  Phantom Limb by Pig Destroyer
The list author says:
  "How is it possible to have this many amazing tracks, yet alone amazing albums, one after another?...."
10.03   Used & New from: 5.39
4.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (3 customer reviews)

A Raining Sun Of Light And Love
23.  A Raining Sun Of Light And Love by Titan
The list author says:
  "Little known American prog rock/stoner rock band. Fantastic progressive, riffy, jam workouts."
9.53   Used & New from: 0.82

Airships Fill The Sky [CD + DVD]
24.  Airships Fill The Sky [CD + DVD] by Morgan Packard
The list author says:
  "Engaging lesson in how subtle electronic music should be done."
30.51   Used & New from: 11.93

Dedications
25.  Dedications by Klimek
The list author says:
  "Deep, floaty compositions to drift off and visualise to....."
17.04   Used & New from: 6.99
