The Rest of My Favorites of '07

I'm finally posting the rest (it is only August!)...

4. Ryan Adams – Easy Tiger

Adams relaxes and creates a great folk-rock album without trying too hard.

3. Over the Rhine – The Trumpet Child
OtR turns ridiculously positive on this comforting album that consistently flirts with folk and jazz.
2. Patty Griffin – children Running Through

This is a confident, bold album from a great story-teller.
1. The Good, the bad & the Queen

My clear favorite of the year and I'm still listening to it all of the time. This collaboration features Damon Albarn of Blur and Gorillaz, Paul Simonon of The Clash, Tony Allen of Africa 70 and Simon Tong of The Verve. What you get is a combo of pop/rock/electronica that is incredibly compelling.
