    Hi There.

    Recently I've noticed myself listening to the same music, over and over. I've been wanting to expand my music collection for a period of time now, and even though I have looked in the charts, they seem to be full of "Greatest Hits" and Multiple Artists on one CD.

    Anywho, could you please post your Top albums of 2007, be that 1, 5, 10 whatever :p

    Not looking for anything specific, but would prefer to avoid the "Heavy" drum and bass, apart from that I like everything (Have a soft spot for Rock though) ;)

    Thanks,

    Larnica

    This is an odd one for me since I know of a couple of albums which I think are fabulous, but which aren't going to be released till next year. So seeing as this topic is presumably about albums which have been released in 2007, I would go with:

    Catafalque - Dialectique
    Symphony X - Paradise Lost
    Herbst9 vs Z'ev - Through Bleak Landscapes

    I genuinely can't think of anything else. It's been a pretty flat year.

    Albums which I heard for the first time this year, and which I thought were amazing:

    Stolen Babies - There Be Squabbles Ahead
    Forgotten Silence - KaBaAch
    Akphaezya - Anthology II
    To-Mera - Delusions
    Mira - There I Go, Daydreamer
    Blood Box - World of Hurt
    Aghast - Hexerei Im Zwielicht der Finsternis
    Vas - In The Garden of Souls
    Artemis - Asphodel
    Stellamara - The Seven Valleys
    Irfan - Irfan
    Raison d'etre - Within the Depths of Silence and Phormations

    Hardly any metal there at all, surprisingly.

    There's only two for me really:

    Noisettes - what's the time mr wolf?
    Kings of Leon - because of the times

    For me 2007 has been more about finding and listening to great albums (IMO) which I had managed to never hear before. Eg:

    Beirut - gulag orkestar
    Adem - love and other planets
    Great Lake Swimmers - great lake swimmers
    Neutral Milk Hotel - in the aeroplane over the sea
    Reigning Sound - too much guitar

    Among others.

    Only 2 albums I have from 2007 are;

    Megadeth - United Abominations
    Velvet Revolver - Libertad

    Don't really like Libertad that much but Megadeth have set Metallica a cracking task of topping their album imo.
