The sixthinstallment of our top 100 albums of 2007 year end list.
50. White Chalk byPJ Harvey
PJ Harvey can belt out avocal without much trouble when she feels the need. But here on White Chalk,she takes on a more delicate air that works to convey despair without eversounding contrived, or having you wishing for something to happen. To thecontrary, I am completely happy and tuned in every time I hear it. An artistictriumph.
49. The Good,The Bad & The Queen by The Good, The Bad & The Queen
The Good, The Bad & The Queen is an album bya supergroup consisting of members of Blur, The Clash, The Verve and FelaKuti, and produced by Danger Mouse. Obviously, with that frame of reference inmind, there was a good deal of hype around this release. But lucky for us, thealbum lives up to it, and the group sounds as if they've been creating musictogether for decades.
