Top 10 Overall releases of 2007

10) Ben Weasel and His Iron String Quartet - These Ones Are Bitter


Better than Mr. Weasel’s previous release, this pop-punk gem rivals some of Screeching Weasel’s top albums.

Favourite Track:
Let Freedom Ring
-----------------------

9) Everybody Out! - Everybody Out!


Sweeny Todd from The Dead Pets is one of those frontman that will always get my attention no-matter what he does, include the founding Dropkick Murphys' guitarist Rick Barton and you’ve got an excellent chantey-sing-along-punk EP. Worth a listen if you’re a fan of DKM or Street Dogs.

Favourite track:
Home
-----------------------

8) Girls Aloud - Tangled Up (Seriously, now STFU)


The Girls and Xenomania have re-wrote the book of pop with this album, it’s pop at its best done by the best. Very danceable and fun.

Favourite track:
Girl Overboard
-----------------------

7) Streetlight Manifesto - Somewhere In The Between


I’m sure I wasn’t the only one disappointed with the re-working of Catch 22’s classic Keasbey Nights - I wanted new songs. I wanted this album. Good things come to those that wait and this album that proves that theory right. Excellent energetic ska-punk.

Favourite Track:
Down, Down, Down To Mehphisto's Cafe
-----------------------

6) The World/Inferno Friendship Society - Addicted to Bad Ideas: Peter Lorre's Twentieth Century



Red-Eyed Soul was my favourite release of 2006; therefore I had high expectations for this album. Thankfully WI/FS delivered another wine fuelled cabaret-gypsy-punk masterpiece about the legend Peter Lorrie.

Favourite Track:
Ich erinnere mich an die weimarer republik
-----------------------

5) The JB Conspiracy - This Machine


Perhaps one of the worse band names in existence, however, all is forgiven the second the first song hits your ears. Excellent ska-punk from Surrey, UK. Although the re-workings of Duff Muffin's classic songs are not as good, their original songs are just as solid.

Favourite Track:
This Machine
-----------------------

4) Bomb the Music Industry! - Get Warmer


It took me a while to get into BtMI!, I heard ASOB before them and just thought they were a bit ‘meh’. After finally realising that were are far from meh I feel in love with them. The songs follow a more consecutive style compared to the previous releases, which is nice. Another excellent release by Jeff & co.

Favourite Track:
I Don't Love You Anymore
-----------------------

3) The Flatliners - The Great Awake


Better than their previous album? Maybe. Just as good? Fo’ sure. The Flatliners leave their aggressive skacore roots for a more ‘melodic’ approach; the end product is a fabulous album of awesomely crafted songs.

Faveourite Track:
Eulogy
-----------------------

2) L'Arc~en~Ciel - KISS


After hearing MY HEART DRAWS A DREAM for the first time this became my most accipated release of 2007. When it was finally released I was not disappointed; everything about the album is outstanding, from hyde’s vocals to tetsu’s basslines.

Favourite Track:
MY HEART DRAWS A DREAM
-----------------------

1) The Peacocks - Touch and Go


Playing live or on CD The Peacocks are a charm to listen to. Throughout their albums they shift between styles, no one album is really the same. This is also the case for Touch and Go; it has a different feel yet retains the same The Peacocks signature sound. Top notch.

Favourite Track:
Gimme More
