This isn't a new code for "Lost." It is however the unified music theory. The Sevens.

Is this one of the best years for music in a long time?
I think so. If you agree then think about this as well:

1967 - Music turned on its head
The best 45 ever, Penny Lane and its "b" side Strawberry Fields
The birth of the Velvet Underground and Nico.
Those two events still reverberate constantly.

1977 - Talking Heads, Clash, Sex Pistols, Television all debut albums, and then there's Rocket to Russia.

I won't speak to 1987, we just did a piece on this blog about the Joshua Tree.

I'll skip 1997 because my faith in pop music had vanished, only to return a few years later. Was it a good year? You'll have to tell me.

1957 was pretty astonishing as well, West Side Story, Jailhouse Rock and John met Paul.

So how about this year?

I was putting together the list of all that I loved this year and I thought there was some great innovative music. The Animal Collective, Grizzly Bear, Panda Bear, Radiohead, Deerhoof, Caribou are just a few (lots of animals this year don't you think?

I've just compiled a list of 100 great records we covered this year on this website.
Maybe your favorite is on it, maybe not.

But we are asking you to vote for album of the year.
You get 5 choices, and you can write in what you don't see.

and think about The Sevens.
