Cokemachineglow's Top 50 Albums of 2007

The always fascinating critics over at Cokemachineglow have finally released their quite thorough list of the Top 50 Albums of 2007. The Glow critics tend to have slightly more original, or for lack of a better word experimental, picks than most sites or mags. So for that reason alone my tastes usually line up pretty well with their picks (we have a 6 out of 10 match up in our Top 10s in fact). This year's list also gives credit to a number of unjustly overlooked records, including some of my favorites like Andrew Bird's Armchair Apocrypha, Future of the Left's Curses, Nina Nastasia & Jim White's You Follow Me, Shining's Grindstone, Blitzen Trapper's Wild Mountain Nation and Parts & Labor's Mapmaker. Check out the complete Top 50 here, along with a lot of other year end lists and commentary. Here is the Top 10:

1. Spoon - Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga
2. Future of the Left - Curses
3. Supersilent - 8
4. Panda Bear - Person Pitch
5. Battles - Mirrored
6. Pantha Du Prince - This Bliss
7. Frog Eyes - Tears of the Valedictorian
8. Menomena - Friend & Foe
9. Deer Tick - War Elephant
10. Stars of the Lid - And Their Refinement of the Decline
