The Spirit of St. Louis

Two of the Lou's famous rockers fill us in on their favorites of 2007 — and what the next year holds.

Tacks, the Boy Disaster, Oh, Beatrice. They are an unsigned band that are unbelievable. Great arrangements, beautiful lyrics, criminally unknown.

Blonde Redhead, 23. Very different to anything they'd done previously. I know, I know, it's very Radiohead-ish, but they do it well.

Nine Inch Nails, Year Zero. I really had no intention of liking this record, but...I do.

Arcade Fire, Neon Bible. I think I like it even more than Funeral. They definitely avoided the sophomore slump.

The Shins, Wincing the Night Away. Didn't like the rest of the record nearly as much as Oh, Inverted World, and not quite as much as Chutes Too Narrow, but "Phantom Limb" is stellar.
