We’re really internet and we’re really back. A website about things Benjamin , Chuck , Virgil , and various friends & guests think are interesting. Little-to-no specific focus, a bit odd, speling errors, and incredibly culturally relevant.

The year in music 2007 (#2)!

I agree with Chuck, 2007 was a great year for music. If anything, it was great year in music just for me personally…lots of new discovery. So, album of the year? Without any question, it goes to Kanye West for ‘Graduation’. I love how it took hip-hop and pop music to another level. Song of the year for me though would have to be ‘Videotape’ by Thom Yorke/Radiohead. I loved it when it was just that video-only download with Thom on the piano by himself…album version is great as well. So thats the basics - album of the year, song of the year. Some randoms now… Beat/production of the year? ‘Flashing Lights’ by Kanye West. New favorite artist of the year? M.I.A. My new-discovery-of-old-music this year? Ahmad Jamal’s amazing track ‘Ghetto Child’. Amazing. Most remembered move made by an artist this year? Radiohead…obviously. Music I got into that I never thought I would have this year? French electronic. And it goes without saying…I’m sorry to everyone who spent big-budget dollars to make great music video…the music video of the year? Snoop Dogg with ‘Sensual Seduction’. And that’s that…my 2007 music review.
