EOTY List 2007

This year it was really difficult for me to put together an end of the year list. There were just so many great albums released. Everything is open for discussion - feel free to ask me why I placed something where I did or whatever. I also know that I just didn't get around to listening to everything released this year, so if you feel that I have a glaring omission, please tell me so I can find it and hear it. Thanks, and enjoy the list!

i thought jimmy eat world's chase this light was one of the biggest disappointments of the year. i am from mesa and have grown up listening to jimmy and their latest attempt fell so so short of clarity's beauty. they need to get rid of butch vig and bring back mark trombino for their next album, and then turn the amps down and write some good, heartfelt songs.
