after scanning the various sites today, I've come up with this rough, aggregated top ten 'most lauded albums of 07' list.
LCD Soundsystem – Sound of Silver
MIA – Kala
Radiohead – In Rainbows
Panda Bear – Person Pitch
The Field – From Here We Go Sublime
Robert Wyatt – Comicopera
Battles – Mirrored
Feist – The Reminder
Lairs – Liars
Burial – Untrue
In my humble opinion, the Battles, Field, and LCD entries are undeserving - of course these albums have their qualities, but what I'm alleging is that they're chronically over-rated.
Dave W? What say you? I know you're 'across these' (to use the corporate jargon)...
What would you say is the 'most over-rated album of '07? Fellas?
