Music: What a year for the kind of music I enjoy. I actually have a top 15 and even at that leave off lots I loved. There were great albums from The Editors, De/Vision, Bjork, Lakeside X, Assemblage 23, Dave Gahan, Komputer, LCD Soundsystem, Marsheaux, Obscenity Trial, Pink Grease, She Wants Revenge (though this one fell far, far below expectations), Mobius Band (who would rank #16 if I expanded the list) and dare I admit it, Britney Spears, who delivered the first listenable music of her career, save for Toxic). I enjoyed all of these albums a lot and they helped balance out just how bad the mainstream charts were this year (which were exceptionally bad in 2007), but the "best" of the year were:
: Galore. Imagine Gwen Stefani, but, you know...good. Also as an electronic act. And also as an artist who performs songs about dirty illicit sex, cheating, and from the perspective of a call girl. A better pop album I can't recall in recent memory.
