Top 10 Time

Over the next few days I am going to share a few different Top 10 lists with you. Today I will start with my Top 10 Albums of the year and there will be 3 or 4 more to follow, with my Top 10 Movies of the year as the final installment.

Albums of 2007
1. The Rocket Summer - Do You Feel
For the first two months after buying this CD, I listened to it everyday. At the beginning, I was even considering making it number 1 all time, but it ended up not making it that far.
2. Sherwood - A Different Light
This is what I call happy music. Great to turn on in the car alone, turned up loud and singing at the top of my lungs.
3. The Higher - On Fire
A great sophomore effort from the Vegas boys. By far the best band Vegas has to offer.
4. Colbie Caillat - Coco
This is on many people lists this year. Every song is fabulous, with so much emotion expressed through the lyrics.
5. Yellowcard - Paper Walls
A surprise on this years list. After a dismal follow up to Ocean Avenue, Yellowcard got down to business for this years Paper Walls. Listen to the amazing drum solos on a few tracks.
6. Jimmy Eat World - Chase This Light
I am a long time JEW fan, but have never felt satisfied by their music since Clarity. Chase This Light will be loved by long time fans and new followers alike.
7. Dashboard Confessional - The Shade of Poison Trees
Chris Carrabba surprised the world with this album, announcing it only 5 weeks before the release date. A completely acoustic CD, it got everyone ready for the great solo tour that had been 5 years in the making.
8. Treaty of Paris - Sweet Dreams, Sucker
The first LP release from Andrew McMahon's Airport Tapes & Records label is a fun, upbeat rock album.
9. Paramore - Riot!
This teenagers figured out their sound on this second release. With great melodies, I will listen to this record for a long time.
10. Farewell - Isn't This Supposed to be Fun?
A surprise find from my recent music quest. These guys know how to get your feet moving without using to many computer generated sound. I cant wait to see them live and get the full experience.
Honorable Mention
Angels and Airwaves - I-Empire
The Starting Line - Direction
Cartel - Cartel
Mae - Singularity
Hidden In Plain View - Resolution
Jay-Z - American Gangster
Anberlin - Cities
