5.0 out of 5 stars Compilations of continuing brilliance 11 Mar 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Another year and - hooray! - another retrospective of the music we have just left behind us, courtesy of those splendid chaps at Rough Trade. This compilation has a lot of expectation riding on it, as last year's was truly superb. Thankfully, this one is far from a letdown.

As ever with a Rough Trade Shops Counter Culture comp, there are two discs to play with - one which could loosely be described as 'mellow', and one that is a bit nuttier. Both discs are fit to bursting with a spectacular cross-genre display of what 2007 had to offer, often plucked from the murkier corners of the market, where all but the most discerning shoppers could blithely pass by without knowing what joys lay within.

The highlights of this installment include a typically lovely Lanegan-assisted number from Soulsavers; the satisfyingly thunderous Om; an intriguing sea-shanty-meets-blues tune from Alela Diane; the cheeky 'Thou Shalt Always Kill' from Dan Le Sac; chipper rattle'n'stomp from Pete & The Pirates; a practically uncategorisable slice of Battles... The list goes on a lot further than any compliation of this scope has any right to. Precious few tracks fail to make the grade - the Glasvegas track did very little for me - and the likelihood of you finding a new favourite nestled within is great.

To summarise, if you are a music fan with a broad taste, a lover of obscurities, or someone who has found that the Now series no longer fulfills all their compilation needs, pick this up today. And while you're at it, give the earlier ones a try. You never know what new wonders await...
