NPR's Best Albums of 2007

All Songs Considered just released an excellent episode not too long ago detailing their picks for best album and song of the year. Additionally, they include their nominees for "biggest let down" as well as "most innovative." Some of the artists they applaud include LCD Soundsystem, Panda Bear, and Levon Helm.

I encourage you to listen to the entire episode or stream songs from the selected artists here.

If you're too lazy or busy to go to the ASC site, I've included a stream of one of All Songs's "biggest surprises." It's 'Please Read the Letter' by Robert Plant & Allison Krauss. (Plan on hearing this beautiful and subtle track repeatedly at a coffee shop near you).
