The Best Of 2007 (...so Far)

2007 has been a pioneering year for music, and here's what you should buy, if you have ears.
1Nine Inch Nails
Year Zero


What else can I say about Year Zero? The album has a perfect storyline, that is deeper than most TV shows, and the new, sexy electronic vibe is completely excellent and is some of the best music Trent's made in years. The electronic beats get kind of overused, but still, the album works out perfectly.
2Porcupine Tree
Fear of a Blank Planet


Steven Wilson has finally became the amazing progressive rock musician we've wanted for years. This album, comprised of six tracks, packs a wallop, that starts with the heavy, yet melodic and very, very dark title track, hits its climax with the spiraling epic Anesthetize, and finishes off with Sleep Together. Porcupine Tree never disapoints.
3Dinosaur Jr.
Beyond


Look, this band has captured my iPod as of late, and I absolutely love this album. The band may be aging, but their music sure isn't, and I can't believe how well this album works and the raw feel it has, considering how much success they've had as of late, and the quality of this album, considering how long this band has been going on for.
4Minus the Bear
Planet of Ice


A few months ago, I had no clue who this band was, but now, Planet of Ice is one of my favorites of 2007. The album has a distinctive progressive/alternative rock feel, while keeping the band's trademark playful, innocent type of indie.
5Modest Mouse
We Were Dead Before the Ship Even Sank


This band hasn't sold out; their music is still spastic, fun, and just wholly enjoyable. The lead singer's random tangents, the guitar work, the 'funky'ness of their music, and this is their best album in years. One of my favorites so far, easily.
6Interpol
Our Love to Admire


Interpol is talented at making catchy music, and this is no different. Catchy, pop-fueled, and filled with a dark vibe. The band has squeezed their sound for all it's worth, and while this album might be controversial of hardcore fans, it's still an astonishing album worthy of notice.
7Smashing Pumpkins
Zeitgeist


When I first heard Zeitgeist, it didn't click. Now, the album stands out, quite simply because it sounds like nothing else in their catalogue. Not as good as their other stuff, but it's a good starting point and may alude to some excellent music in the future.
8Megadeth
United Abominations


Another unusually awesome release considering how long this band has been playing. Who would have though Megadeth would have released an album worth consideration so late in their career? Not me, but this album fits perfectly in their prestigious line-up.
9Between the Buried and Me
Colors


The album hasn't actually been released yet, but the leaks I've heard rock the house. The album is varied, fun, and highly progressive, especially for their genre. Colors is one of the best releases in the genre in years, if not of all time.
10Chevelle
Vena Sera


Chevelle was just plainly boring mainstream rock before this album, as now, they're a full fledged metal band filled with aggressive hooks, Maynard James-influenced vocal styles, and the ability to make amazing songs worthy of the highest praise, like I Get It.
