Battles - Mirrored

Critic Score

16 reviews

‘Mirrored’ is the sort of album that the sharp rock kids will be citing as an inspiration in the pages of NME in a decade’s time. It’s a glimpse through a prism into a myriad of rock futures, and all of them look like a blast.

9. The Cribs - Men's Needs, Women's Needs, Whatever

The Cribs - Men's Needs, Women's Needs, Whatever
July 17, 2007
Critic Score

10 reviews

They’ve made this record, not for their bank balances, but for the emo kids, disillusioned Libs fans and alt.rock obsessives who’ve held them close to their hearts since day one.

8. Biffy Clyro - Puzzle

Biffy Clyro - Puzzle

It’s not fashionable, it doesn’t have a haircut, it doesn’t strut about all cocksure in fancy matching military wear. No, ‘Puzzle’ is substance over style.

7. M.I.A. - Kala

MIA's skills don’t necessarily lie in her singing, rapping or lyrics, rather the clarity of her vision.

6. Kings of Leon - Because of the Times

As it stands, ‘Because Of The Times’ cements Kings Of Leon as one of the great American bands of our times.

5. Les Savy Fav - Let's Stay Friends

LSF haven’t made their definitive record by accident. The signs were there on 2001’s ‘Go Forth’ – but this is a step up and into the best party on Earth.

4. Arcade Fire - Neon Bible

Arcade Fire - Neon Bible
March 6, 2007
Critic Score

22 reviews
‘Neon Bible’ is a climactic monolith of a record in the grand tradition of melodic transatlantic clamour rock, as extolled by Mercury Rev and The Flaming Lips.

3. Radiohead - In Rainbows

2. Arctic Monkeys - Favourite Worst Nightmare

Arctic Monkeys - Favourite Worst Nightmare
April 18, 2007
Critic Score

21 reviews

‘…Nightmare’ is four young men-of-the-world casting aside their juvenile naiveté and emerging stronger, savvier and, well, more salacious.

1. Klaxons - Myths of the Near Future

Klaxons - Myths of the Near Future
March 27, 2007
Critic Score

Whether Klaxons will reshape our world into a fluorescent myth-tropolis as successfully as The Strokes turned the mono-tune remains to be seen, but their debut has the anatomy necessary to change the course of a generation.
