The only albums from 2007 that I have are

The Chemical Brothers - We Are The Night
Never had an earlier Chem Bro's album so can't really compare but I really like this album and it tends to be on quite a bit in my car :)

Dizzee Rascal - Maths and English
I havn't listened to this much but it's so so.

Timbaland - Shock Value
Deleted most of the songs, but the ones I kept are pretty catchy :)



Oh yeh and a little side note Forever Faithless is only £2.99 on play.com I recommend a purchase :)

geez mate a bit harsh lol, i liked a few of those record...but as i said before i do listen to what people think is "rubbish" music, i prefer open minded :D.... The View's lyrics can be lost in translation but i thought it was an okay record. Biffy Clyro weren't that bad, The Smithereens aren't anywhere near the beatles but a few good tracks. Rest pretty much agree though. WTF do the Hives think they are? self proclaimed best record my ***.

Agree with your other list of best albums a lot

A few not mentioned i think are in 2007....
Mr Hudson & The Library - A Tale Of Two Cities
The Good, The Bad & The Queen
GoodBooks - Control
Dinosaur Jr - Beyond
The Academy Is... - Santi
The Thrills - Teenager
Siobhan Donaghy - Ghosts (and yes i honestly liked her album)
Bruce Springsteen - Magic
Brooke Fraser - Albertine
Common - Finding Forever
Air Traffic - Fractured Life
Kisschasey - Hymns For The Nonbeliever
The Hours - Narcissus Road (a bit rubbish in parts but good album)
Missy Higgins - On a Clear Night
Paramore - Riot! (prob ruined any credibility i had on liking this one)
Maroon 5 - It Won't Be Soon Before Long (didn't like there previous stuff but liked this album)
Liam Finn - I'll Be Lighting

The View are the worst lyricists eer, read their lyrics ffs.

Ricky Gervais is quoted as sayignt hat Skag Trendy has the worst ylrics ever. The most annoying thing about Skag Trendy is that all the scene and indie kids ahv it as their msn name or bebo name, its like NANE, u do know skag trendy means your a ******* junkie

I would go for The Enemy "WE ALL LIVE AND DIE IN THESE TOWNS"

The last Sterephonics albulm also would be up there but all in all not a good year for music in 2007,

Enemy album was a good effort i suppose. NME hyped it a bit i thought.... Sterephonics album has one memorable track might re listen to it.

the enemy suck ***, although one of their singles was like the song of my summer cos the chorus bit (away from here etc) was on an advert atr Leeds fest, i must have heard it a good 100-200 times and just that wee minute snippit of the song, dont like the song but whenever i hear it it reminds me of summer
