And the first Top 10 of the year goes to....

Stylus Magazine, who apparently decided that November 1st was an opportune time to kick 2007 out of here, released the first Top 10 that I've come across. You can see their Top 50 here, but here is their Top 10, an eclectic list if I do say so myself.

10. Radiohead -- In Rainbows
9. The Field -- From Here We Go Sublime
8. MIA -- Kala
7. Spoon -- Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga
6. Kanye West -- Graduation
5. The National -- Boxer
4. Lil Wayne -- Da Drought 3
3. Panda Bear -- Person Pitch
2. Miranda Lambert -- Crazy-Ex Girlfriend
1. LCD Soundsystem -- Sound of Silver

There ya go - a list that spans genres from indie rock to techno-pop to R&B to country. I can say with certainty that Spoon and The National will be in my Top 10 but they are still wrestling with a few other albums for the top spots. I need more time with the Radiohead and I've heard good things about LCD Soundsystem, so I reckon its time to give it a listen. Can anyone persuade me to give these others a thorough listen?

Hmm, i guess they're not expecting much in the coming two months....

I'm looking forward to putting out a Top 10 of 2007, but I think I'm going to wait until a little closer to the end of the year...

Man, you guys listen to a lot of new music. I can hardly think of an album of 2007 that I've bought. I reckon I'm behind the times. I reckon I like it that way.
