All Songs Considered Listeners Pick The Best Music Of 2007

Hear Bob Boilen talk About the Listener Picks on All Things Considered

Tens of thousands of listeners voted in the All Songs Considered poll for the year's best CDs. It was tight for much of the race, with Radiohead and Arcade Fire running neck-and-neck for first place. But in the end, Radiohead's In Rainbows pulled ahead as an overwhelming winner.

There were also surprises: Some of the year's most anticipated CDs (like Rilo Kiley's Under the Blacklight), or most popular albums (like Lily Allen's Alright, Still) barely made the top 25. Meanwhile, smaller acts like Andrew Bird wound up in the Top 10.

The 25 CDs NPR listeners loved most this year are listed below. Thanks to all who voted for helping make it a great year at All Songs Considered.

More 2007 Top 10 Lists from:

Bob Boilen, Will Hermes, Robin Hilton, Tom Moon, Meredith Ochs
