Since everyone in the SEO universe is doing their year's end compilation posts, I thought I'd share with you Feasters the list of new music albums/songs I enjoyed this year. Other than a few gifts, 2007 was dedicated to iTunes. Others may have their problems and jump ship, but I'm going to stick with iTunes for the foreseeable future. 

2007 was a year of experimenting, and as my wife will agree, of over spending. I got a little crazy with iTunes purchases early on, due to the very easy nature of sampling and clicking to purchase. I never had to look at a balance until my credit card statement came. I didn't go too overboard, but considering the other expenses we had this year, I could have trimmed my music purchaseserepa bit.

I DO love my music, though, and I love discovering bands and artists I've never heard before. iTunes and Starbucks are my crack, and I must moderate usage or else I'll be sucked deep down into the vortex of credit card hell.

Without further ado, my list of new music for 2007:

Linkin' Park – Minutes to Midnight
Boys Like Girls – self titled
Alanis Morisette – Supposed Former Infatuation Junkie (note: I'd owned the CD before and it went missing)
Bjork – Homogenic (working on the complete collection)
Bjork – Volta (biggest disappointment of 2007)
Burial – Untrue (biggest surprise of 2007)
Celine Dion – Taking Chances (don't hate… she IS one of the greatest female vocalists)
Feist – The Reminder (purchase totally influenced by the iPod commercial)
KT Tunstall – Eye to the Telescope (purchased for my wife, but I like it too)
Mat Kearney – Nothing Left to Lose (good album)
Matt Wertz – Somedays
Matthew Good – Hospital Music
Michael Buble – Call Me Irresponsible (greatest lounge voice perhaps ever)
OneRepublic – Dreaming Out Loud
New London Fire – I Sing the Body Holographic

I'd love to see what the rest of you listened to this year. Post your faves in a comment below. Peace out!

  1. Good picks. Some I haven’t heard of before.

    BTW, Tunstall’s new album “Drastic Fantastic” is one of my faves from this last year. I became a fan. 🙂

  2. I’ve been inches away from purchasing that new Tunstall album several times. It stares me in the face every time I visit Starbucks. Perhaps this spring it will be adopted into the family.

    Any other albums you recommend, Russ?

  3. BTW, as you can see, anyone who signs up for a gravatar will get their avatar posted along with their comment. I’ll throw out a post announcing that as well. Let me see your shining faces!
