My Top 20 Albums of 2007

Belatedly following on from My Top 25 Films of 2007, below are the albums released in the UK last year which most tickled my musical fancy.

It wasn't a vintage year for albums imho (hence only 20 rather than the customary 25) which is perhaps unsurprising in a year when only three of the artists in my Top 20 released studio albums (Radiohead, The Arcade Fire and Kaiser Chiefs), although there were still a few gems...
