2007 pt. 2

I love year end lists.. even though I swear I'm not incredibly late on this.. Sorry folks, I was on vay-kay. I always find this process kind of confusing cause there are albums I didn't fully listen to but I fully enjoyed the parts that I did and I find myself relistening to things that I didn't give a good enough chance to.. is that cheating? I dunno. Also, there are albums that have been released in the past month or so and haven't fully grown on me, but they could fully well have been in my top albums of 2007 otherwise. I think my choices end up (simply) being something that I found unique and interesting or something that I overplayed, often ending up in both of those categories.
