The Best Albums of 2007 - Final Cut

Making a music album seems to be a dying art. Sales are plummeting as downloads are taking over but here, in Cool Music Central, we still have a lot of love for them and we try to do our part to keep them alive. Going to the record shop and searching for that elusive album has been an important part of our upbringing and there's no hard-drive or cool portable device full of mp3s that's going to replace the joy of holding a vinyl album or even a small plastic cd in our hands. Another pleasure of the album format is making the yearly list of your favorites. This is a task that we take so seriously, that the list we have ready every year by December 31st is never the final one, because there's always so many more albums to listen to. The final version of the 2007 list has been 20 months in the making and it's finally done! It includes more than 200 albums released last year and, as always, singles out our top 50 selections. You can see the final list here, and you can watch the video for "Patty Lee", one of the many killer tracks on our Album of the Year, Les Savy Fav's "Let's stay friends", below:
