Music: 40 Best Albums of 2007 9-5

5) LCD SoundsytemSound of Silver
What sounds like a mish-mash initially gels into a fantastically varied collection of songs. Rock dynamics married to electronic beats and all of it married to great choruses.
Here’s the video for “All My Friends”:

6) Spoon – Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga
One of America's best bands does it again. There's nothing radically new here for Spoon, just meaty songs with lots of space.

Here’s the video for “The Underdog” by Spoon:

7) Black Francis – Bluefinger
Pixies frontman and formerly monikered Frank Black, Black Francis puts all he knows about rocking, tight tunes, and crazed singing into this killer concept album.
Here’s a fan video for “Tight Black Rubber”:

8) ElectrelaneNo Shouts, No Calls
Electrelane goes out on top with what looks like their last release. Throbbing pulsing guitars and stacked vocals means they come on like a more warm and organic Stereolab.
Here’s a fan video for “Tram 21”:

9) Caribou – Andorra
Sounding like The Hollies if the Hollies grew up wanting to be The Chemical Brothers, Caribou uses electronics to evoke echoes of British invasion sounds. A stunningly beautiful album.
Here’s the video for “Melody Day”:
