Pedro Music Awards 2007

Keeping on with the tradition from 2005 and 2006, here are the albums and songs that have marked my year. They are not necessarily albums that were launched this last year, but instead albums that came to my knowledge in the past twelve months - by eaither purchasing, receiving as a gift, or downloading them.

As I said before the list this year shall come as no surprise, for I have been anticipating my predilection for some of the winners from as early as January.

It was a year of female singers, of jazz, and of introspection.

6) There's a Riot Goin' On, Sly and The Family Stone
7) Reservoir Dogs Soundtrack
