Chris DeVille and I have been granted the esteemed opportunity to vote in the 2007 "Pazz & Jop" year-end list sponsored by The Village Voice. Thanks much to Rob Harvilla. That means, of course, that I have to come up with a list of the 10 best singles and one for the 10 best albums of 2007.

It's a tough task. So, in hope of coming correct, here is my first list of favorite albums. Let me know what I'm missing...

Young Wise, The Cocky Mixtape Vol. 4 Paper Airplane, Middlemarch The Thrills, Teenager Thomas Dybdahl, Science Various Artists, Oxford American, Southern Music Sampler #9 Pissed Jeans, Hope for Men Dr. Dog, We All Belong Bad Religion, New Maps of Hell Liars, Liars Burial, Untrue Grinderman, Grinderman Paul McCartney, Memory Almost Full J Dilla, Ruff Draft Calvin Harris, I Created Disco Kanye West, Graduation Pharoahe Monch, Desire LCD Soundsystem, Sound of Silver Radiohead, In Rainbows

Singles after the jump...
