too much typing—since 2003


the blogger's friend: lists

Here's a list of 2007-release full-length releases I've acquired this year between July and September. *** means it'll likely be in my top twenty at year-end (note that there have been a lot of good releases this year), ** means it's doubtful but possible, * means it's unlikely to do so, and # means it's ineligible (live albums, compilations, EPs: my list, my rules).

Of this list: 11 were actual CDs purchased (only 3 of which are on major labels); 1 an actual CD sent to me for free; 9 were legal, paid downloads; 2 were legal, free downloads (the two Stereogum collections); and 2 were free downloads to which I was sent links by promoters.

Previous lists of 2007 releases are here and here.

Once again, your tastes are much hipper than mine. I have the New Pornographers album and used some iTunes credits to get three of the new Tegan and Sara songs.

You downloaded the Stereogum tribute to OK COMPUTER but not the new Radiohead album itself?

This list is stuff I acquired prior to October 1 - the new Radiohead came out sometime in October. It'll be on the next exciting episode of Jeff's Music Collection!

You have acquired more full-length releases in 3 months than I have in at least the last 5 years.
