Year End List -- BrooklynRocks' Top 10 CDs of 2007 is my list of "Top 10" albums for 2007 (in no particular order):

1) Mink - Self-Titled
Raw NYC glam/power punk

2) Evile - Enter the Grave
The spirit of early 80's San Francisco thrash rock lives on in the UK

3) Tulsa - I Was Submerged
Moody, melodic, almost shoe-gazer rock

4) SSS - Short Sharp Shock
Great debut CD from UK trash metalers

5) Wombats - Self-Titled EP
"Moving to New York" and "Kill The Director" (How can you argue with the opening line: "I have met someone who makes me feel seasick") are destined classic post-punk dance tracks

6) Brian Grosz - Bedlam Nights
"Tom Waits + Nine Inch Nails + a BAD attitude = one cool ass, mutha f-cking CD!"
-- Dee Snider (Twisted Sister, Strangeland)--

7) The Kin - Rise and Fall
Amazing voices coupled with great songwriting

8) Shriekback - Glory Bumps
A return to the psycho/swamp sounds of "Oil and Gold"

9) Sunn O))) - Oracle
Another great slab of doom

10)Psychic TV - "Hell is Invisible...Heaven is Here"
Genesis' first effort as PTV3 doesn't disappoint

Honorable Mention:
The Whitsundays (CD is due out in January '08)
