It took me a lot longer than I'd expected to do that list, but I'm glad I did it. I know some people followed it, and some people skimmed, and that's cool, but mainly it's a photograph of 2007 musically, taken from inside my head. So when I'm gnarled and old and rediscovering Web 2.0 from the world of Web 11.5, I think it'll remind me pretty much of how I was thinking.
It also gave me a reason to properly listen to the 25 best albums of the year. Some of them I hadn't listened to since the first few months of 2007, some I only started listening to a few days before I made the first list. The order is as I thought it up at the start of December. If I was to do it again, Sunset Rubdown would be a lot, lot higher, and a couple of other things would move around.
A few links for your perusal:
- A post I did about So Cow in Galway for the Analogue blog.
- A very impressive technological advancement allowing you to read the third issue of Analogue online with flippable pages and stuff.
- Quotes were taken from the Radiohead interview I did for that magazine and put in stories for Pitchfork and NME.com. NME didn't even link to the website, fuckers.
- I can't think of other things to link to.
If I don't post again for a while, forgive me. Between the magazine agus an diabhal liosta sin, my mind is empty of muso sentence constructions. Then again, I'll have nothing to do in a while and I'll end up writing half a novel about something shit. We'll see.
