    It's funny how I'm the one who made this thread, yet I never post in it. I guess I'll just have to have a go at it. As per usual, in no particular order:

    Anberlin - Cities
    Maylene And The Sons Of Disaster - MATSOD II
    Nine Inch Nails - Year Zero
    Radiohead - In Rainbows
    Becoming The Archetype - The Physics Of Fire
    Foo Fighters - Echoes, Silence, Patience, & Grace
    Project 86 - Rival Factions
    Every Time I Die - The Big Dirty
    Emery - I'm Only A Man
    Oh, Sleeper - When I Am God
    Demon Hunter - Storm The Gates Of Hell

    Honorable mentions: Saul Williams, The Showdown, Queens Of The Stone Age (part of me doesn't want to believe that it was released in 2007), August Burns Red, and Linkin Park.

    LP and Sick Puppies owned live this year. Foo Fighters were good too. all 8 of those CDs are great.

    Am I the first to think that almost every album this year has been, like, terrible?
    With the exception of a few?

    Anyway... my 'Top 10' so far

    10. Queens of the Stone Age - Era Vulgaris
    09. The Used - Lies for the Liars
    08. Jimmy Eat World - Chase This Light
    07. Chiodos - Bone Palace Ballet
    06. Enter Shikari - Take to the Skies
    05. Dizzee Rascal - Maths & English
    04. As I Lay Dying - An Ocean Between Us
    03. Alkaline Trio - Remains
    02. Kanye West - Graduation
    01. From Autumn to Ashes - Holding a Wolf by the Ears

    I've not yet had chance to listen to the new Foo Fighters, Jay Z or Dillinger albums, so I'll post opinions on them later.

    Now for all the albums I really got hyped about that REALLY let me down this year: Atreyu, NIN, Say Anything, Coheed & Cambria, Funeral for a Friend, Thrice!

    Four of my favourite bands in there, churning out pure crap.

    Really bad year, I reckon.

    Not trying to sound rude, but maybe you're just like the person that loves a girl so much that they find the most minor fault with her and become obsessed with that fault? Buying into hype can do that to you sometimes; happens to me every once and a while, as I'm sure it does most people.

    I'm gonna say Kylie - X (How obvious :p)

    It's totally different than what she used to make, it's new and fresh. She made a very good comeback in my opinion. ^_^
