    My Favourite 50 of 2007  View Printable Version 
    Friday, January 04 2008 @ 10:35 AM CST
    Contributed by: Dave

    Here's a list of my top 50 albums that were released this year (in no particular order). It's based solely on what I was listening to & enjoying, and nothing to do with sales here at the store. Of course there were plenty of detours through other decades along the way, but you get my drift. As always, I'll remember something that should've been included weeks from now, but for the time being, this is how it stands.
