cLAy TV!! SPIN VS PITCHFORK Best of 2007!!

SPIN Magazine is First, Pitchfork is Second. These are two big on-line "alternative" sites that posted lists for 2007's best music. They are both similar as are many of the reviews I have seen. I am not huge on either list but I thought I would put them out there so you can compare your favs to theirs.

Person Pitch

I like Pitchforks list best for sure. It's crazy that Against Me! is the best over at SPIN!! I haven't seen them on any best of list!? And Panda Bear isn't even in Spin's top 20. LCD Soundsystem has been in top 5 on most lists I've seen and so has M.I.A., Kanye West, Arcade Fire, and Radiohead. Both lists are missing many of my favs. My brother's top of 2007 that was posted here on cLAy TV!! got put up over at large hearted boy!! Go check it!! His is far superior to these two. Large Hearted Boy has a ton of other compiled lists too!
Not sure if I will post a top list of 2007, too difficult. But maybe?? Video list maybe?? Whatever? Who cares?
