Comments: The year in bands that are highly unlikely to appear on Guitar Hero 3

Wow. I never thought we'd have the same favorite album at the end of a year. (I haven't put together a list, but I know the Decemberists edged out Wired All Wrong for the top spot.)

This list, plus the iTunes gift certificates I got for Hanukkah, make a dangerous combination. I've already downloaded the Richard Thompson and the Pipettes ...

I've been liking that Jennifer Trynin album for years; didn't understand why she didn't seem to get anywhere after that.

I haven't sat down and made a Real Official List yet, but that His Name Is Alive album will be close to the top of it.

Of your top 20 albums, I have heard of eight of their artists. This seems to prove that I am woefully unhip.

Dan: Yes, the Decemberists are clearly the band that emo boys like you and indie rock posers like me can all agree on.

I: I think it's just another example of the thing where someone really talented comes along but not enough people hear about them (like the Balancing Act). Apparently Jen Trynin put out a book last year (now in paperback) about her adventures in the music industry, which probably explains in great detail why she didn't get anywhere. I'd be curious to read her story myself.

Trip: Well, go download some of the songs and get hipper!

This list alerted me to the existence of #16, yesterday at around 7 PM. After listening to the track you posted, I decided that 2007 was NOT SOON ENOUGH to own this album and rushed out to my parents' local suburban music stores (Borders and Best Buy) not realizing that they would already be closed on New Year's Eve. Also, if the blinding flash of light that nearly drove me off the road is any indication, I got a speeding ticket in the process (or alternatively, was abducted by aliens and probed in unpleasant ways). I hope you're happy.

Delighted, yes.

I've heard maybe 50 albums from 2006, and yet I've heard none of the 42 you list here. (I did buy the Futureheads disc in the Tower sale, but I haven't gotten around to listening to it yet.) But I'd probably like most of them. There's just too goddamn much good music.
