Here are my top 11 albums for 2007, in no particular order. They are also the only 11 albums released in 2007 (according to iTunes anyway) that I bought in 2007.

  1. Talib Kweli – Ear Drum
  2. The National – Boxer
  3. Bruce Springsteen – Magic
  4. !!! – Myth Takes
  5. Queens of The Stone Age – Era Vulgaris
  6. The Arcade Fire – Neon Bible
  7. Damien Dempsey – To Hell Or Barbados
  8. Manu Chao – La Radiolina
  9. Miguel Bosé – Papito
  10. Rufus Wainwright – Release The Stars
  11. Ry Cooder – My Name Is Buddy

The one I listened to most was Bruce. Least was Rufus Wainwright (one and a half times, then got bored)

This Is Just To Say To My Wife

I have eaten

the Percy Pigs

that were in

the cupboard

and which

you were probably

saving

for breakfast.

Forgive me

they were rubbery

so sweet

and so pink.

 

(Further apologies to William Carlos Williams)
