Snobcast Top 40 Albums of 2007

Written by  //  January 8, 2008  //  The Conservatory  //  1 Comment

Bring on the music of 2008. Please!! I don’t want to hear another fucking song off Neon Bible, Kala, or Sky Blue Sky for a long time. Now I know I promised to have the official Donnybrook Best-Of list ready last week, but I just could not listen to any more Band of Horses. Now that I’ve detoxed from the overload of year-end lists I’m finally ready to release the best (and last) Best-Of that you’ll need to read. Our readers voted, commented, and almost OD’d on the Snobcast Recap: 2007 series. I narrowed down the most mentioned albums and have compiled the best Snobcast of last year.

BONUS: I have included some special remixes of your favorite songs courtesy of Stereogum. Enjoy!!

    Like I said Sunday, the fact that you do this rocks. I cannot conceive of DWA without the Snobcasts. Rock, rock on. Don’t go to Getty, go to Exxon.
