Goodbye Seven, Hello Eight

Ohmpark has just about closed out an entire year. When I started this thing last January, I really didn’t have any expectations except to use this as a research project to learn a bunch of good music. In that regard, it has been a resounding success for myself. I hope you have been enjoying this as much as I have, and thanks so much for reading. Here’s the last of my best of ’07 stuff, compiled together in case you missed anything:

Ohmpark’s Top 50 Best Albums Of 2007
Ohmpark’s Top 10 Best EPs Of 2007
Biggie C’s Favourite Photos of 2007
My Favourite Shows Of 2007
My Favourite Songs Of 2007

So, I like lists, and here’s some more:

Best Atlanta Artist Albums That Didn’t Make our Top 50:

Black Lips : Los Valientes Del Mundo Nuevo
Antic Clay : Hilarious Death Blues
The Jupiter Watts : Jupiter Watts
Slow Motion Crash : Slow Motion Crash
The Coathangers : The Coathangers
Black Lips : Good Bad Not Evil
Sonz Of Acworth : Rhythms Of The Dirty Down Under
One Hand Loves the Other : One Hand Loves The Other

Best Post-Rock Albums That Didn’t Make Our Top 50:

The Octopus Project : Hello, Avalanche
God Is An Astronaut : Far From Refuge
Jesu : Conquorer
Pelican : City Of Echoes
Graboids : Infinite Delay
Fridge : The Sun
Cougar : Law

Most Overrated Albums Of 2007:*

The National : Boxer
Arcade Fire : Neon Bible
LCD Soundsystem : Sounds Of Silver
The Field : From here We Go Sublime
Spoon : Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga
Burial : Untrue
M.I.A. : Kala

*Not that I think these are necessarily bad albums, because i do like most of them, but i think people are too crazy for them compared to the better albums this year.

Most Overrated Before It Was Released And Then Underrated After it Was Released:

The Shins : Wincing The Night Away

Best Atlanta Venue Of 2007:

ISP Space: It didn’t last as long as the year, but when it was open, it was such a cool thing. Pretty much every good band from the city played there and every show was completely free.

Best Other Atlanta Music Blog of 2007:

It Covers the Hillsides: With Cable And Tweed moving to Atlanta’s fat and ugly sister city (Athens), i think ICTH was easily my favourite ITP read of 2007. When it comes to indie rock, they (or i guess he) knows good stuff.

Looking Ahead:

2008 Festival Preview

    love your page, but don’t agree with The National being “overrated”, the BSS concert was amazing!
