A Remarkable Year: Robin Hilton's Top Ten CDs for 2007

It was a particularly incredible year for music. Everyone I wanted an album from delivered one: the Shins, the White Stripes, the Shout Out Louds, Arcade Fire, Modest Mouse and many, many more. There were some wonderful new discoveries along the way (Ben Sollee, Le Loup), and some disappointments (Wilco). But overall it was one of the most rewarding years for music in recent memory.

In choosing the ten best CDs of 2007, I looked for three things: 1. CDs I know I'll go back to years from now; 2. CDs with a sound I felt compelled to share with someone immediately after hearing; and 3. artists/bands that broke from convention and tried something different.
