The best music of 2007
2007 is coming to an end. Thought I’d list the best songs I’ve heard this year. Note that these are songs/album I liked, not just songs which were released this year.
Sappy [video] by Nirvana. What I've Done [video] by Linkin Park.
Sappy, it turns out, dates back to 1987. But I hadn't heard it till recently.
Linkin Park's Minutes To Midnight was a digression from their last two albums, which were characterised by LP's style of building up the intensity to a point where the song explodes. That style was missing in this album. Needless to say I didn't like it as much as I liked Hybrid Theory and Meteora.
Life In A Metro, especially Alvida [video]. Metro is by far the most impresive OST I've heard in a long, long time.
Sliver by Nirvana. Some of these songs are so good, you wonder how they hadn't made it to any of Nirvana's studio albums.
People I'd like to listen to less
Shreya Ghosal and James [of Alvida] fame. Not because I dislike them, but because I liked them so much, I hope they are choosy about their work.
People I've tagged
Illuzon, Rachna, Vijayendra.
