I know it's not quite the end of the year yet, but I've compiled a list of my ten favourite albums of 2007. After the staggering amount of phenomenally high-quality releases we witnessed in 2006 from the likes of Mastodon, All That Remains and Lamb Of God to name just three, we would have been forgiving for thinking that this year would be spent reliving past glories. However, 2007 was an unexpected triumph, with several excellent albums appearing from perhaps the unlikeliest of sources. Twelve months ago, few would have expected certain bands on my list to unleash a record that would warrant a place in an article such as this, and as my own musical taste has slightly altered in recent months, I personally would not have expected to see certain other acts mentioned here. So without further ado, here are my albums of the year. I've thought long and hard about this list, but if anyone disagrees other suggestions would be welcome.
10. SERJ TANKIAN - ELECT THE DEAD.
