2007...the year so far

Anyone else want to start making preliminary rankings for the best albums of 2007 so far? Don't be afraid, just post your favorites so far, and maybe what's still to be released that you're excited about. Here's a very loose approximation of what my list is shaping up to be:

1. Pig Destroyer- Phantom Limb
2. 3 Inches of Blood- Fire Up the Blades
3. The White Stripes- Icky Thump
4. Tegan & Sara- The Con
5. Clutch- From Beale St. To Oblivion
6. Nine Inch Nails- Year Zero
7. Municipal Waste- The Art of Partying
8. Broadway Calls- Broadway Calls
9. Arcade Fire- Neon Bible
10. Pelican- City of Echoes

There's definitely a few that will get bumped out and that I only put on there to try and make an even 10, but those are all really solid albums IMO. I'd say that 1-6 are pretty much locked down. Here's what I haven't heard yet that will probably make the list by the end of the year:

Bad Religion- New Maps of Hell
Against Me!- New Wave
Dillinger Escape Plan- Ire Works
New High On Fire
Beastie Boys- The Mix Up

I should add that this year I'll probably have more metal on my list than I ever have before, which is interesting since none of the "big players" are putting out anything this year.
