Top Tunes 2007

Artwork of The Best Songs I Bought In 2007 Ever

So here it is again: the track listing to my annual compilation, ‘The Best Songs I Bought In 2007 Ever’. There’s some excellent tunes there (Aliens, Maccabees and Decemberists in particular), but somehow it’s a bit underwhelming – there’s certainly not the diversity I’d normally like. I guess my music buying was rather too consistent/unadventurous this year.
