2007 in Review: The "Most Efficient Album of the Year" Award

This award, honoring the best songs squeezed into as little time as possible with no wasted space, goes to:

The Busy Signals
The Busy Signals

The Busy Signals' first album crams 12 songs into less than 25 minutes, and there is not a single wasted second. I'll make an effort to be similarly succinct. They play pop punk in the style of The Rezillos (not the current raft of pop punk bands). All 12 songs are perfect. There is no filler. They are all fast, catchy, and fun. If there is a place in your heart for the electric guitar, this album will make you very happy.
