my favorite albums of the year

dave alluded to "the insane amount of 'best of' lists floating around" in his last post, so i thought i'd take the opportunity to throw mine out there as well...if i took a little more time (i.e. wasn't so lazy), i'd probably write something about each of these (& try to make it sound as good as this), but as it is i'll just let the music speak for itself...these are my favorite releases from 2007.
