The Alberta Report
TOP 3 RECORDS OF 2007
Immaculate Machine – Fables – (Mint Records)
Chrsitine Fellows continues to prove that the album is not dead Chrsitine Fellows – Nevertheless – (Six Shooter Records)
Great Lakes Swimmers – Ongiara – (Nettwerk Records)
MOST UNDER-RATED RECORDS OF 2007
Arcade Fire – Neon Bible – (Merge Records)
MOST OVER-RATED RECORD OF 2007
Arcade Fire – Neon Bible – (Merge Records) I bought this album along with the hordes and helped give it one of the best release dates for an indie Canadian band in a long time. Unfortunately I don’t play it as much as Funeral and I only heard one single on the mainstream radio. Coupled with touring everywhere except Canada and Neon Bible and Arcade Fire win for most overrated record of the year.
