Music With an Impact - 2007

2007 was a radical year for the music industry. No matter what platform and what format the record labels and artists choose to put their music out, 2007 was still a year that saw many great releases and where I discovered really remarkable and rewarding albums. Here is a list of what I heard (and heard) during the year that just went by.

Bjork - Volta
Roisin Murphy - Overpowered
Charlotte Gainsbourg - 5:55
Blue States - First Steps Into...
Bat for Lashes - Fur and Gold
Efterklang - Tripper
Tegan and Sara - The Con
St. Vincent - Marry Me
PJ Harvey - White Chalk

Honorable mentions include Dave Gahan's Hourglass, Benoit Pioulard's Précis and Underworld's Oblivion with Bells.
