DETAILED TWANG’S BEST OF 2007

Ooooh it was just so hard to be out of commission for a couple months and not be able to rank-order the best music I heard this year! So here, in late late January, are the “records of the year”, some of which weren’t even records. I’m refraining from any commentary on these out of consideration for your time.....I’m also not trying to go to 10 on each of these, as, to be honest, I didn’t hear every record/CD made during the year. As so often happens, sometimes my favorite records during any given year are heard way after the fact. If you can help speed along this process by letting me know what I missed in the comments section, that’d be righteous.

Did you hear that Johnny Lunchbreak LP? I'm not sure if that counts as a reissue, but if it does, it would be the reissue of the year for me.

Sorry so late posting - did you hear the new Fabienne Delsol solo record that came out? It was import only, but it came out in September.
