Looking back on the musical year

The year has nearly ended. A good time to look back on what have been 12 exciting months musically (and otherwise)…

In 2007 I've been mostly (re)discovering some old (progressive) rock bands like Flairck and Trace, old and new jazz, funk and soul. Check out the many album reviews I've posted in the past 12 months and you'll know what I mean.
Some of my favourite new releases have been Justice - Cross (hailed as the next Daft Punk), Eric Truffaz - Archangelsk (Miles Davis meets indie rock) alongside great albums by Porcupine Tree (art rock), Chick Corea & Bela Fleck (jazz/fusion) and a surprising release by black metal gods Mayhem…

Best rock albums of 2007 (classic/post/indie/progressive rock and metal)
1. Mayhem - Ordo Ad Chao
2. Dream Theatre - Systematic Chaos
3. Van Der Graaf Generator - Real Time

Best electronic albums of 2007
1. Justice - †
2. Air - Pocket Symphony
3. Daft Punk - Alive 2007
