Critic Score

There are no eargasms along the lines of "Hyperballad", "Bachelorette", or "5 Years", but the whole thing is agreeable.

14. The Field - From Here We Go Sublime

April 3, 2007
Critic Score
85
8 reviews

From Here We Go Sublime is brilliant in that it encapsulates many of the best ideas in the genre from at least the last 20 years. For this reason, it's an album that has the potential to transcend the obsessive nomenclature that seems to confine electronic artists and labels; a malaise that seems to affect electronic music in particular.

11. Feist - The Reminder

3. Arcade Fire - Neon Bible

March 6, 2007
Critic Score
85
25 reviews

Could Neon Bible actually best their stunning 2004 debut? Yes. On Funeral, the band wrestled with death and its aftermath. Here, they look outward at the world from, and this is crucial, an American perspective.

1. Radiohead - In Rainbows

October 10, 2007
Critic Score
88
25 reviews

In Rainbows ... comes from a more composed place in their personal and musical pantheon, creating an unassuming but worthy addition to their revered discography.
