It’s that time of the year again: Cold winter days, Christmas lights and… year end lists. I’ve closed my musical book for the year, anything that’s released from now on won’t make it on my best of list on such a short notice anyway. So it’s time to round it up and make up the score.

. 2007 was also the year I discovered the joys of concerts: Stars, The Decemberists (twice), Battles, The Frames, The Album Leaf and all of this in one year
. You certainly won’t hear me complaining!

Without further ado, here’s my top 20 albums of 2007:
, Blood Red Blood
Not as good as the some of the EPs, but it’s on regular rotation anyway.
