In Rainbows
In Rainbows
"2007 saw the return of the greatest band on the planet, and had everybody asking, "how much did you pay?"..."
Boys And Girls In America (+Bonus 'Live')
Boys And Girls In America (+Bonus 'Live')
"A proper rock and roll record from a proper rock and roll band (okay, technically 2006, but re-released this year!)"
Because Of The Times (CD/DVD Special Edition)
Because Of The Times (CD/DVD Special Edition)
"The Kings really delivered with this one; their best album to date."
The Historical Conquests
The Historical Conquests
"There's been a recent decline in decent singer songwriters. Luckily, we still have this man, and this is his best album yet."
Songs For The Road
Songs For The Road
"Another fantastic singer songwriter, David Ford follows up his wonderful 2005 debut with a more ambitious album with more emotional and instrumental depth."
Magic
Magic
"The Boss returns! And over 30 years on from Born To Run, he's still showing the rest of us how it's done."
Under The Blacklight
Under The Blacklight
"Under The Blacklight has become Rilo Kiley's most successful album, and for good reason."
Neon Bible

"Is any comment other than 'wow' really required..."
Release The Stars [CD + DVD]
Release The Stars [CD + DVD]
"What with a new album, a world tour and the odd tribute to Judy Garland, it's been a busy year for old Rufus."
Easy Tiger
Easy Tiger
"The bad boy of Alt. Country deliveres his most coherent collection of songs in ages. Good to have him back."
Icky Thump
Icky Thump
"Bagpipes? Yeah, I know, I was confused for a long time too, but you must admit, it works! Well done Jack and Meg, you've done it again."
An End Has a Start
An End Has a Start
"Recieved some negative reviews (mostly from critics wanting them to become Coldplay), I thought it was a great follow up to the harsher The Back Room (...and PLEASE, don't become Coldplay)"
Our Love To Admire
Our Love To Admire
"It seems 2007 was the year to set amplifiers to EPIC, and Interpol did just that. Fortunately, they also wrote some incredible songs."
Boxer
Boxer
"Often compared to Interpol (its the deep voice, isn't it), I hear more shades of Nick Cave, but comparisons aside, this album is stunning."
Cassadaga
Cassadaga
"One of my very favourite albums of 2007, Cassadaga saw Conor and Co. up the anti and bring us some gorgeous songs with incredible arrangements."
The Good, The Bad & The Queen
The Good, The Bad & The Queen
"If the devil makes work for idle hands, then Damon Albarn's fingers should be made Pope; the man just doesn't rest! It's quite a perculier album - fragile and beautiful - and one of Albarn's best."
Favourite Worst Nightmare
Favourite Worst Nightmare
"With the emmergence of every mediocre new indie band (Pigeon Detectives, The Twang, etc...) I fall a little bit more in love with the Arctic Monkeys. Proof they're the real deal."
Puzzle
Puzzle
"The band with the silliest name in rock get serious. We're talking death, mortality, and... superhouses? I still don't know he's on about there. But a fantsatic album none the less!"
Swine and Cockerel
Swine and Cockerel
"The Mighty Roars deliver energetic and infectious female-fronted indie punk goodnes. For fans of Be Your Own Pet, The Noisettes, Sleater Kinney et al."
Fantastic Playroom
Fantastic Playroom
"Like their musical brothers Klaxons, New Young Pony Club were the sound of 2007 and managed to get nominated for the Mercury in the process."
Fur And Gold
Fur And Gold
"Technically, this came out in 2006. Got picked up by a bigger label however and 2007 saw Natasha Khan rocket into public consciousness. A good thing too, because she's INCREDIBLE."
Wincing The Night Away
Wincing The Night Away
"Aw, the Shins. I've only heard this album, so I can't say whether Natalie Portman's line in 'Garden State' rings true for me, but it's a glorious album of indie pop lovlieness anyway."
Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace
Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace
"You can't not love Dave Ghrol. He may not make albums like The Colour And The Shape anymore, but he and his band are still awesome. And the Pretender is probably one of their best singles ever."
The Thirst
The Thirst
"The newst band on this list, I'm hoping for good things from The Thirst in 2008 if this EP (and their single Ready To Move) is anything to go by. Check these lads out NOW!"
Year Zero
Year Zero
"I'd like to call this a return to form, but I only own Downward Spiral, so I can't really comment. It's awesome though! Packs more punch than Downward Spiral; a real rocker."
