Paste magazine has posted their top 100 albums from 2007. You can find the list here.
I’m somewhat amazed by how many of these artists and albums I have never heard of. This is the first year I haven’t had a subscription to Rolling Stone or Spin in a long time, and it has definitely skewed my music knowledge. However, I do have 5 of the top 50 including Ryan Adams, The Perishers, Arcade Fire, Band of Horses, and Derek Webb.
