Comments on: My Top 20 Albums of 2007 Visualized http://designnotes.info/?p=1215 Testing & Sprinting Mon, 20 Feb 2017 09:49:00 +0000 hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=4.7.7 By: Stuff that I liked in 2010 (the Music Edition–Top Albums) : DesignNotes by Michael Surtees http://designnotes.info/?p=1215&cpage=1#comment-104469 Mon, 29 Nov 2010 14:16:57 +0000 http://designnotes.info/?p=1215#comment-104469 […] This year I thought I change up my reviews a bit. In the past I’ve diagramed the top ten in terms of release dates and the type of music it was. This year I found that things were more consistent in the type of music I was drawn to. So instead I thought I give a brief overview of my top albums from 2010. I can’t really pinpoint any one influence in terms of discovery. At times I found new stuff from Hype Machine, NPR on occasion and random tweets. If you’re curious to see how I’ve reviewed them in the past, here’s 2009, 2008 and 2007. […]

everything else [minus alicia keys] got heavy rotation in my studio for 2007. so i suggest replacing alicia with rhianna:)

i can’t believe you let your opinion of an album be influenced by hype their business model gets! your opinion of the album should be based on how good the music is. incidentally, i think their best album. took me a while to get into it though.

They can’t distribute it digitally – they can only sell it from cd. Something is pretty broken when stuff like that happens.

Try and get hold of the 2nd-CD of In Rainbows that came with the box-set, that’s the only reason it ended up making my top-10.

Plus I love that Architecture in Helsinki is on there, that may be my very favorite of the year . . .
