    we did this in june... top 3 of each.... under no circumstance are you allowed to give extra 'honourable' mentions... e.g. "my favourite albums this year have been all the ones i bought"

    albums:

    1. marnie stern - in advance of the broken arm
    2. battles - mirrored
    3. nina nastasia and jim white - you follow me

    gigs:

    1. joanna newsom - the barbican, london
    2. boredoms - the village, dublin
    3. camera obscura - the village, dublin

    I can't believe Interpol are not going to get a mention in either. So Far this year it would have to be (Sunset Rubdown will probably be my no. 1 in a week)

    Albums

    1. Menomena - Friend and Foe
    2. National - Boxer
    3. Elvis Perkins - Ash Wednesday

    Gigs

    1. National - Olympia
    2. CYHSY + Cold War Kids + Elvis Perkins - Tripod
    3. Handsome Furs - Whelan's

    The Go! Team - Proof of Youth
    M.I.A - Kala
    Sound of Silver - LCD Soundsystem
    Dinosaur Jr. - Beyond

    Top 3 gigs were -

    Is it really that obvious! I quite liked the Richard Hawley "Ladys Bridge" & Candie Payne "I wish i could have you loved you more". Can't really think of anything else that's really grabbed me, ok i admit i have tunnel vision....

    Only catching up on this thread now, and am not gonna do the albums, just five gigs, plus lots of honorable mentions. Breaking all the motherf**king rules along the way, ho yes.

    Best gigs of 2007:
    Wilco in Vicar St (take both gigs, divide by two if necessary)
    The Drones at the Ballroom Of Romance
    Interpol at Oxegen & RDS (cannae decide)
    PJ Harvey at the Olympia
    Battles at Primavera, Barcelona

    Honorable mentions go to Biffy Clyro for being ridiculously good each of the five times i saw them in 07, CSS for putting on a rather fun Christmas show, Powderfinger in Tripod for unapologetic balls out stadium rock, BRMC in The Village & Ambo for being sexy bastards, Rufus for the glamour, La Rocca get most welcomed home band award, Eagles Of Death Metal for making handlebar mustaches and Irish descendant patriotism cool again, REM for doing it Dublin style, Loudon Wainright III for coolest old folk dude performance, and... thats it I think. A good year for it.
