The 2007 Sleepless in the Seattle Metro Area Music Awards: introduction

Well, it's been a year since I'd sat down and relistened to the songs I'd found in the past year, so that means it was time. It's always a fun time listening to those tracks I'd forgotten, and reassuring myself that great music is still being produced in the world. In trying to pick my top 25 songs, I started with a list of about 55, and the cuts started getting difficult at around the 45 mark; there are plenty of spectacular songs that didn't make this year's list, as always.

The criteria for making it onto these lists is merely that I had to have heard the song since the last time I did this, about a year ago. I'm calling that time period "2007." So, without further ado, let's start with the best albums of 2007.
