While at work I have the pleasure of listening intently to music. Minneapolis is also lucky to have several public stations without commercial interruption. However music is very different today. Some would argue it's all commercial anyways, and to some degree I am of the same opinion. Ever heard a great single and bought the album only to hear a whole lot of shite? Seems the complete album is disappearing. Critics often hold that exact sentiment. while I tend to be rather cynical, I choose to remain optimistic for the future of the album and music in general.

Top Ten albums of 2007:
#1 Meaning of 8 - Cloud Cult
#2 Challengers- The New Pornographers
#3 100 days and 100 nights- Sharon Jones and the Dapp kings
#4 The Undisputed Truth- Brother Ali

#6 Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga- Spoon
#7 Sky Blue Sky- Wilco
#8 We were dead before the ship even sank- Modest Mouse
#9 None Shall Pass- AESOP Rock
