First Quarter: Best of '07 (so far)

It's that time of year again here at ADD. And I'm sure most are already sick of lists from the myriads of lists that appeared online from all over the place. Just see this list as a quarterly report of what I consider the "best of" (so far), this year.
And of course, I really don't write too much about the album...I just let the album speak for itself with a track or vid.
(currently Blogger's been acting a bit weird, so I'll have links up soon)
So enjoy.

The list compiled of album releases from: January 1st- March 31st 2007.
