What I Got In 07 *Top 10*

The top 10 albums that I've listened to this year. (And the 10 runner-up albums.)
1Machinae Supremacy
Deus Ex Machinae


Quite possibly the greatest free album I?ve ever gotten. These guys along with Dream Evil are what really got me into some good power metal this year. Definitely a classic.
2Dream Evil
The Book Of Heavy Metal


I remember hearing these guys for the first time last year through their listening party and being immediately hooked to the cheesy awesomeness of the title track. Perfect example of great musicians having fun with music.
3Rise Against
The Sufferer And The Witness


God bless my friend who gave this to me. While none of their other releases have really stood up to the level of this (so far), they?ve got me highly anticipating their album in 08.
4Fair To Midland
Fables From A Mayfly


Jom forever has my gratitude for inadvertently suggesting this album. Great way to get into alternative music without diving head first.
5Elvenking
The Scythe


Incredibly accessible power metal with unoriginal lyrics and uninspiring instruments. And yet it works for me.
6Element Eighty
Element Eighty


Most likely the last (semi) nu-metal band and album that I?ll ever listen to. See above comment.
7Circle Takes The Square
As The Roots Undo


I had to listen to this some time. Definitely worth the praise it receives here, and a nice entry into the world of emo.
8Refused
Songs To Fan The Flames Of Discontent


Next to Elvenking, this is the best album I got from R&M DU (R.I.P.), and yet another album that got me into its respective genre. I?ll be getting The Shape Of Punk To Come soon.
9Between The Buried And Me
Colors


This just had to be here. It took a few listens to get hooked on, but it was worth it. Not much else to say except pure awesome.
10Paramore
Riot!


Just recently started loving this, and to be honest, it?s the only one that really doesn?t seem to fit here. Great, just kinda shocking that it managed 11 and 12. Love her voice though.
