This is my first list of 2007 , take it for what its worth.
Best CD (download) bought in 2007: I downloaded a lot of old stuff since I am an Emusic subscriber. But, right now the 2007 candidates would be Andy McKee’s Dreamcatcher (whom I discovered through a You Tube video) and Andrew Bird’s Armchair Apocrypha; An album I am still growing into but he hits all the subtleties that draw me into an artist of his kind.
American Idol surprises: Elliot Yamin’s CD stunk. Bucky Covington’s did not.
Best musician I can’t stop playing: Alexi Murdoch. I wish this guy would release something soon.
Biggest disappointment musically: David Crowder’s Remedy being a measly ten tracks three that could be heard elsewhere before this CD.
The album I keep going back to: David Crowder Band – The A Collision. I hear something new every time I listen to it. Beautiful.
Best new TV show: Hands down, Friday Night Lights. More sexual overtones than I prefer, but the show is brilliant. The best cast I have seen in years and add in football and I am sucker for its goodness every week.
OK I admit it moment of TV 2007: I am a sucker for life changing reality shows. American Idol produces multiple recording artists and actors. Beauty and the Geek give new insights to brains and bombshells. And the Biggest Loser never fails to amaze me and grip me. And the sap I am, is guaranteed to tear up more than once during these shows.
