The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

What better way to waste time at work then posting my top 10 albums of 2007!! I usually take a lot of time doing this and then send it out as a mass email to all of my friends. Thanks to ERIC KULA for starting this tradition. I look forward to getting your list soon, you know the old man likes his cannoli.

New Pornographers: Challengers
It's a great album by my favorite band and it also has my putter in the title.

White Stripes: Icky Thump
Sick boy guitar

Radiohead: In Rainbows
Thanks ZV for the recommendation, but I would have downloaded it eventually. I want to know, who paid for it??

Kanye West: Graduation
Just got a copy of this a few weeks ago and I've been playing it nonstop.

Deerhoof: Friend Opportunity

Battles: Mirrored

LCD Soundsystem: Sound of Silver
good for the gym and a 'grower' for sure.

The Arcade Fire: Neon Bible
Another strong album from Canada's 2nd best band.

Justice: †
This album is like nothing I've heard before, so that's worth something, right?

Grizzly Bear: Friend EP
Also just got a copy of this, need to spend some time on it with headphones but it comes to me highly recommended by a very trusty source. I like it so far.

Eva, I'm sorry but you will never have me
To me your just some faggy girl and I need a lover with soul power
And you aint got no soul power

(full review to follow, but I'll just say that Of Montreal has been playing in my head for the last two weeks.)

burnt my copy of "in rainbows" for free from a co-worker that paid $15 for it. Thanks for the "New Pornographers" recommendation, just picked it up at the Y-town library!

Touché Mr. Davis.

I was not aware that you are a vinyl person. I have a question for you on 'Ask John Davis.'

The title of the Small Sins album is Mood Swings.

That Pop Levi album is a lot of fun. Sometimes he sounds like Prince, sometimes like Led Zep.

EsDubya, have you had a chance to listen to either Feist or Of Montreal yet? They're radically different -- which did you prefer?

Some good stuff from 2007 that I've only discovered in the past week:

Small Sins - (I forget the album name)
Liam Finn - (I forget the album name, but it's from YepRoc Records, a label which put out several very good albums in 2007)
