The Best of 2007 (so far)

Today is June 30th, just about as close to the midway point of 2007 as we're going to get. It almost scares me looking at what's been released and what's priming to be released because some amazing records aren't even going to crack the top 15 when it's all said and done.

My 10 Favorite Albums of 2007 (so far)

Just Missed: Lovedrug - Everything Starts Where it Ends, Page France - ...and the Family Telephone, Lymbyc Systym - Love Your Abuser, The Snake The Cross The Crown - Cotton Teeth.

10. Modest Mouse - We Were Dead Before the Ship Even Sank
9. Cloud Cult - The Meaning of 8
8. A Northern Chorus - The Millions Too Many
7. Paramore - Riot!
6. Dear and the Headlights - Small Steps, Heavy Hooves

Upcoming in 2007:

I think the top 5 in both categories have legit shots to remain in the top 10 by December, but it'll be a free-for-all. Discoveries await around every corner. Love music.
