The Beginning of the End

Year end lists can be such a drag. As I'm sure you know, most music nerds love to argue and daring to state a mere preference means subjecting yourself to unbridled criticism of your taste. When people go off on one of these musical tangents, I like to call it getting all "Seattley". (even though I've been subjected to it plenty here in NYC. Hello, Williamsburg!) It's an attitude nicely summed up by the above Venn diagram or that joke about how many hipsters it takes to change a light bulb.

Anyway, I'm not pretending these are indisputably the most fabulous records made this year, they're just the ones that resonated with me.

And with that, I give you #7 in my top 7 of '07:

Dethalbum

Deluxe Edition

Because every boy I loved before I turned 18 loved metal and because I still really, really love coffee.

Here are the lyrics. Feel free to sing along.

Do you folks like coffee?

Real coffee?

From the hills of Colombia.

Then Duncan Hills will wake you

From a thousand Deaths

"A cup of blackened blood"

[Die! Die!]

You're dying for a cup!

Guatemalan Blend

Ethiopian

French Vanilla Roast

[Die! Die!]

You're dying for a cup!

Prepare for ultimate flavor

You're gonna get some. Now!

And scream.. for your cream!

[Guitar Solo]
