Jess thought last week that we were done with the 2007 wrapping-up, but hey, it’s not February yet, which means there’s still time for more 2007-related head-scratching! The music-blog aggregator The Hype Machine just dropped the 2007 Music Blog Zeitgeist, which compiled 648 of bloggers’ top-albums lists for a 1252-album list of the Internet’s favorite full-lengths of the year. And even with all those voters, and all the albums out there, it was still topped by In Rainbows! Funny, that. Also compiled: the 50 most blogged-about songs, which are broken down month-by-month, and the most-discussed artists.
THE GOOD: By now, you can probably recite which albums landed in the top 10 without even taking a peek at the list beforehand.
THE BAD: By now, you can probably recite which albums landed in the top 10 without even taking a peek at the list beforehand.
THE WHAAAA? The Klaxons were the 10th-most-blogged-about band, but Myths Of The Near Future limped in at No. 46, just behind Stars’ In Our Bedroom After The War and right in front of Rilo Kiley’s How You Like My Micromini Now?
