Best album of 2007?

Rachel McAdams rocking a Dinosaur Jr shirt. You can ignore Diane Keaton.

There have been lots of great albums already released in 2007, but in the end, it might be Dinosaur Jr's Beyond that ends up being the best of the best. The band's first with the original trio in 19 YEARS dropped today, on the day of Gerdon's birth, and is flat out sick. You want fuzzy guitars, you got it. You want some hot licks without the musical masterbation, you got it. You want catchy hooks, you got it. You want some solid songwriting, you got that too. Although we've hardly reached the home stretch for the year, this disc by J Mascis, Lou Barlow, and Murph is the early leader for me. Here are two of my favorites from Beyond:

Dinosaur Jr -- Been There All The Time

Dinosaur Jr -- Back To Your Heart

Nice, I really like the first one....it makes me want to ride around downtown New York City in a golf cart.
