Summary:
The Following Are My Five Most Anticipated Albums of 2007.

1. Radiohead – TBA – TBA.

Radiohead’s latest album is supposed to come out this year. It is as of
now unnamed and there’s no release date. They don’t even have a record
label as of now and it’s unknown how their album will be released if it
is released. All of this only adds to the excitement. Radiohead hasn’t
released a new album in four years (time flies, no?) so there’s been
quite a buildup to this new album....

The Following Are My Five Most Anticipated Albums of 2007.

1. Radiohead – TBA – TBA.

Radiohead’s latest album is supposed to come out this year. It is as of
now unnamed and there’s no release date. They don’t even have a record
label as of now and it’s unknown how their album will be released if it
is released. All of this only adds to the excitement. Radiohead hasn’t
released a new album in four years (time flies, no?) so there’s been
quite a buildup to this new album.

I’ve heard some of the tracks that are supposed to be on the new album in
a live recordings found online. I’ve been very happy with what I’ve
heard. I have pretty high expectations for this album with the
combination of how good Thom Yorke’s “Eraser” was (one of my top albums
of 2006.) and with the high quality of these live recordings.

My desire is that Radiohead does not begin to rest on their laurels and
they do not try dumb things down to the lowest common denominator. I hope
they come out with their most ambitious and progressive album yet.

2. Air – Pocket Symphony – March 6th

I’m a huge fan of Air. I love all of their albums. My favorite being
10,000 Hz Legend because of it’s weirdness and abstractions. But even
their more easy listening material (such as the somewhat overrated Moon
Safari) is great.

I’ve heard some negative things about this album from folks who have
heard advance copies (I haven’t got one myself yet) but I’m still excited
to hear it because well, I often find that other people have bland taste
(preferring Moon Safari over 10,000 Hz Legend is a great example in my
mind.)

3. Wilco – Sky Blue Sky – May 15th

Yankee Hotel Foxtrot is one of the best   albums of this   century. A Ghost
Is Born is pretty damn good too. Those    are two pretty   good reasons to be
excited about the new Wilco album. Much   like Radiohead   I’m hoping for
more adventure. I’m actually not a huge   fan of the 90s   Wilco material. I
find it a bit bland.

4. Akron/Family – TBA – Spring

Akron/Family’s debut self titled album was one of my favorite musical
discoveries of recent times. Unfortunately I haven’t been able to get
into their 2006 album Meek Warrior at anywhere near the same level. That
being said I’m still excited about their new album. I think if nothing
else Akron/Family is not a band that’s going to rest. I think they are
adventuresome and not afraid to try new things. That makes them a rather
exciting force in my book.

5. The Smashing Pumpkins - TBA - Spring 2007

I’m cautiously optimistic that Billy Corgan has something interesting up
his sleeve. I was not a big fan of Machina and I thought Zwan wasn’t
particularly interesting and The Future Embrace downright awful. All of
that being said I think The Pumpkins 90s work stands up very well today
and I’m more than willing to give Corgan and the Pumpkins another chance.
If nothing else I’m very curious about this album.
