kweli, kanye, mos, & common

unreleased…from the eardrum sessions…produced by kanye west:

& don’t hold your breath for this one, but good news nonetheless on the reflection eternal front:

Lastly, Talib Kweli confirmed that he’s closing out the year with a reunion with Hi-Tek. “People asked for it, so we got back together, and we’re working on that.” Albeit sparse on details, Kweli promised the project to be released before the close of 2008, and revealed that recording was underway.

i decided to link to random youtube videos of songs from each album…

10. blu & exile – below the heavens

9. lupe fiasco – the cool

8. arcade fire – neon bible

7. radiohead – in rainbows

6. spoon – ga ga ga ga ga

5. panda bear – person pitch

4. feist – the reminder

3. common – finding forever

2. lcd soundsystem – sound of silver

1. kanye west – graduation

honorable mentions go to 2007 releases from oh no, animal collective, of montreal, jay dee, justice, rilo kiley, and the cunninlynguists. hot chip would’ve made it if their album came out a bit earlier and amy winehouse would’ve if hers came out a bit later. i decided not to include compilations and mixtapes but honorable mentions in that realm go to stones throw’s b-ball zombie war, j*davey’s land of the lost, and dj soul & okayplayer’s assorted donuts.

figuring out a top ten tracks list is going to take me a while…

update: belated honorable mentions to waajeed’s the war lp, the good, the bad & the queen’s self titled album and the veils’ nux vomica even though that was officially 2006 i think…
