5 Nov 2008, 13:06 de darren86The following are the top 10 albums of 2007 that I currently own. I probably own more than 10 albums from that year, but these are my favourites.
Note 1: I will be including compilations, live albums, ep's, re-issues etc, but no singles.
Note 2: If I do only own 10 from this year, the releases towards the end of the list may not be favourites of mine at all, but the best I do have from that year.
Note 3: If you think my list sucks, or needs improvements, please feel free to RECOMMEND me albums from 2007 and I will certaintly try to listen to them and give my opinions.
All comments welcome.
1. In Rainbows
The first time I heard this I thought it was the greatest album ever. The next few times I didnt like it as much and eventually thought it had little replay value. Baring in mind that I had heard only half of this album before the official release, I began listening to the songs I hadnt heard more closely. When I started to appreciate those songs, the album as a whole just clicked. …

5 Feb 2008, 6:30 de bound2rambleArcade Fire 23rd January, 2008.
There's a reason why Arcade Fire is hailed by many as the best live act of today. That reason, I found out a couple of weeks ago, is because they are.
Spoon, whom many people were there to see as much as Arcade Fire, played a one hour set, and a damn good one at that. They're an extremely talented band, it was a very tight performance, they played very well. I do love it when we have excellent luck with support bands at gigs. Although, they were all pretty much co-headliners. Spoon were really great, I wouldn't mind at all seeing them again.
Arcade Fire, however, blew the entire audience away. A blues backing track welcomed them onto the stage with an audience filled with applause, anticipation, and excitement. I'd say that with the band having such excellent live reviews, everyone had quite high expectations of this show. My goodness, did they deliver. The full ten-piece touring band walked onto the stage, Win gave a little hello, and they burst straight into Wake Up…

I'm not sure I can accurately express just how fantastic Arcade Fire are as a live band, there is one thing to say though, that their live show is epic. Waiting in line for the front section of the Enmore was completely worth it (and it wasn't exactly that long of a wait), we ended up with a spot in the front row, which intensified the whole performance. Kudos goes out to Spoon. Normally, I would be incredibly excited about seeing Spoon, but the anticipation of Arcade was just too much and I regret to say I didn't pay a great deal of attention to them. Disappointed also at the lack of Sister Jack, Monsiuer Valentine, Anything You Want. I have to say, though, The Underdog and Don't You Evah were such great songs live.
Arcade, what can I say. Absolutely engaging from beginning to end, diverse set, would have swapped I'm Sleeping in a Submarine for Tuesday's Headlights Look Like Diamonds but I really have no reason to complain. …

My second Arcade Fire show of the year, and they were amazing yet again. Bit of a shame that I can't say the same about Alexandra Palace. It's a very long walk up hill - Win even complained about it - the only working toilets were in the main hall, with big queues, and there was this stupid token system to get drinks, with people still queuing for tokens when the band came on. I could maybe understand £3.50 for a pint, but £1.75 for a can of Coke? C'mon. And the shuttle bus back down after the gig was a shambles. The security staff lost control of the fans, and it took me half an hour to get onto a bus. Can't say I'll be going back there again, even if that means that their next London show is at Wembley Arena, which some will see as a sell-out.
As for the gig, a great atmosphere, they did a couple of covers, they did Neighborhood #2 (Laika), Neighborhood #3 (Power Out) and (Antichrist Television Blues), which they didn't do when I saw them in Brixton. …
4 Nov 2007, 18:17 de DelysideArcade Fire gave an excellent performance in Vorst! (link)
Here's a review of another visiter:
Starting with 'keep the car running' followed by 'no cars go' they definitely had some kind of car theme going on there :). An excellent start. One thing I noticed: the sound was good - very good even, concidering that it was in 'vorst nationaal', an arena with a less than average quality of sound...
Here are 2 rather amateuristic recordings of the night!
Arcade Fire - Ocean of Noise
Arcade Fire - The Well and the Lighthouse
