Most disappointing thing you heard in 2007

Sorry about the brevity but I am sneaking in at work.

Anyways, for me The Drams. Even more diappointing than Wilco or Bruce Springsteen's efforts.

Off the top of my head the Springsteen album springs to mind. Couldn't even get halfway thru it.

Oh God yeah, I have lost it with him. He insists on throwing every instrument ever made onto his songs and then sings in that half interested voice, like it's too much trouble to do it right.

I was disappointed in myself as I actually liked a couple of those Daughtry songs.

Rilo Kiley's 2007 release ranks pretty high on the disappointment scale for me.

I liked Easy Tiger very much. Also enjoyed what I listened of The Drams' album by the way

I've had it since Thanksgiving (or maybe Xmas?) and i STILL haven't made it to the end yet. Just not where my head is right now - however, that's not to say that two month from now I won't turn to it again and think it is the mutt's nuts or the bee's knees.

Hmmm... yeah... I just thought most of it was kinda weak... like the stuff Adams cuold have written in his sleep. Couple of good tracks... I love Two and Pearls On A String... but most of it? Meh.

I haven't got that one as yet... I should get it just for the Down In A Hole cover... which was awesome live.

Yeah, Down In A Hole is probably the highlight on it.

I thought easy tiger was one of Ryan's best efforts in a while. I never did get into his last couple before that though. They're okay albums, but nothing on them really grabs me.

The Drams Jubilee Dive is, in my opinion awesome. It's not as good as their live show, but a great album (and for the record that was released summer '06, I want to say a week after the smog album).

Sky Blue Sky was also a fairly good album. Probably my favorite Wilco album since Summerteeth. It was good to see that JEFF TWEEDY didn't decide to be all weird on it.

I think i'd have to put Vic Chesnutt's North Star Deserter in the disappointing category. It's not a bad album, but it's one of those that I bought, listened to a couple times, and nothing really struck me as that great on it. thinking back on it, maybe I just need to hear it again, as looking over the track list it was alright. The other album that didn't do much for me is Teddy Thompson's (son of richard and linda) new album "Up Front and Down Low". It was kinda neat to hear some of the country staples by him, but after a couple listens it gets old.
