    Good choices all around so far. Here's my list:

    1. Nellie McKay - Obligatory Villagers
    2. Tegan & Sara - The Con
    3. Lily Allen - Alright, Still (I think this qualifies as an '07 US release)
    4. Lucinda Williams - West
    5. Suzanne Vega - Beauty & Crime

    I love the iTunes music store review of this:

    "Dude! Look at the cover art! It sounds exactly the way it looks [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]"

    It sounds as good as it looks, too. If you like Black Sabbath and Motorhead, you'll love this.

    I listened to some Amazon samples. . .the music is very, very cool, but the utterly ass-sucking Cookie Monster vocals ruin it. What a shame. [​IMG]

    When will Cookie leave my nice metal alone and go back to Sesame Street where he belongs? ENOUGH ALREADY!!!

    That is the only thing that is keeping me from getting into this new metal...the vocals. Seems like they all scream and it's completely unintelligible to me.

    I keep meaning to mention this for Jeff (and other Jason Falkner fans). Besides his new solo album from 2007, his side project with Roger Manning came out in late 2006. You can see a video at the site:

    TV EYES

    I think "She's a Study" is a great song and is representative of the album as a whole. Like the solo album, this is only available as an import.

    The Dead C's Future Artists was the standout of 2007 for me. The band is as engaging and imaginative as ever.

    didn't you get Porcupine Tree's Fear of a Blank Planet? (reviews, on signal>noise)

    best album of 2007 for me especially since its a DVD-Audio, not to mention the fact that Alex Lifeson plays the solo on Anesthetize [​IMG]

    The surround mix is as good as Beatles' LOVE DVD-Audio which would be #2 i think (this deservedly beat FoaBP to the surround Grammy)

    Also liked Wilco's Sky Blue Sky a lot, and in a similar vein, Blackfield II

    (In no order)

    Amy Winehouse- Back to Black
    Rihanna- Good Girl Gone Bad
    Bruce Springsteen- Magic
    MIA- Kala
    Lady Sovereign- Public Warning (Late 06 release that I heard in 07 so Im counting it! ) [​IMG] If you can handle rap at all Give Lady Sov a spin. She is very funny and her wordplay is insane.

    I DJ so I listen to all types of music.

    Strangely enough, no I haven't picked up FoaBP yet. Thanks for the reminder! [​IMG]

    I got Edenbridge's The Grand Design since my other post. It's excellent.

    I also want to check out the Sick Puppies since I won a guitar autographed by them. [​IMG]

    I've heard of Riverside. Is that the Polish prog-metal band? I think Amazon sometimes suggests that one for me when I open the front page. [​IMG]

    Yup. Second Life Syndrome is very good - standalone or you can take it as the middle part of a trilogy of albums

    Reality Dream trilogy
    Out of Myself (2003)
    Second Life Syndrome (2005)
    Rapid Eye Movement (2007)
