Mojo’s Best Of 2007 List Finds Gold In In Rainbows

Folks didn’t entirely take kindly to Q’s Neon Bible-worshipping list, but a lot of the complaints weren’t the mag’s fault: Keep in mind, folks, some albums have different release dates in the UK. (That said, the list was pretty shit.) Caveat aside, let’s look at the top fiddy of another British mag, Mojo, and see what they have say. It’s an adventurous list, for sure: We’re happy to see Pissed Jeans up there (maybe they can finally quit their jobs), and Voice of the Seven Woods, and Matthew Dear. But, oh, Yoko?
