My Favourite Music of 2007






And but so here it goes. First off, you'll find an alphabetically organized list of albums that I deemed listenable in 2007. If you don't see it on this list, I either didn't hear it or I didn't thing it was list worthy. Also, any title that is in BOLD is a late addition that I accidentally left off of my original list. Mea culpa.

Following this list, you will find my top ten of the year, countdown-style.
