A Top 10 for 2007...

A Top 10 for 2007, you really want it… just like for 2006? Ok, what I think is that 2007 was far from being a great vintage for music, maybe one of the worst since… ever. I always tried to be positive here on Leaky Sparrow but come on 40 years ago you had to choose 10 records among 60 masterpieces, now, you have to buy 60 records or more to find 10 who are at least acceptable. Sure, I didn’t listen to everything – who could? – but it doesn’t seem that I missed something, I don’t think so, unless you tell me. Ok, here are the records that I enjoyed the most.
Next year will be a better one, of course, and I’m looking forward to hearing the new Portishead.
