Jeffro’s “…Top 20 Albums of 2007” Part 4.

LCD Soundsystem’s “All My Friends” was definitely my anthem of 2007, particularly since it was my last year of college and I had to say farewell to a lot of good people. Likewise, I couldn’t stop listening to “New York, I Love You But You’re Bringing Me Down” while I visited NYC for the very first time.

Even though I hate writing and saying the name of Spoon’s latest album, I think “Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga” is a better record than “Gimme Fiction” — it’s just Spoon stripped down and doing whatever the hell they want since “Kill The Moonlight.”

Now I am the biggest, HUGEST, and possibly phattest Broken Social Scene fan, and even though it’s labeled as a solo album, it still sounds like Broken Social Scene. “Gang Bang Suicide,” for instance, reminds me of a male-version of “Anthems For A Seventeen Year-Old Girl.”

I first encountered Voxtrot in concert during a music festival, and I enjoyed both their music and energy. They just seem like a bunch of swell, down-to-earth fellows, and if I ever meet them in person, I’d love to buy them all a beer.

    I love Spoon, but their latest album is lazy and not as good as everyone believes it is. In fact, it’s probably my least favorite Spoon album. In other news, I thought you’d be proud to know I’ve just eaten two different forms of pain-killers and downed a glass of whiskey. Just like freshman year.

    1) I think “Gimme Fiction” is my least favorite Spoon album.
    2) “Whiskey and Pills,” indeed! Buy another book when you’re on another self-destructive bender.
    3) Oh, and if you’re trying to kill yourself, I should probably say that you shouldn’t do it. I BELIEVE IN YOU AARON, AND SO SHOULD YOU.
