IMP's Top 20 Albums & Top 10 Singles of 2007
IMP celebrates the end of its first year of social networking with a unique gift to itself: year-end lists comprised of members' own Top Tens. Given that IMP has more than 1,200 members from 30 countries, an easy hypothesis was that the list would be dominated by obscure jewels from around the world. However, the driving force behind IMP has always been recontextualization over willful obscurity, so there should be no surprise that these lists are dominated by albums and singles that were just barely left of the mainstream. If anything, we find that indie rock now means more to more people than ever, even in the absence of any truly groundbreaking work this year. So, please enjoy a trip down memory lane to the year that was 2007.
