VeilsNuxVomicaWhen I review a new release, I also give the album a score based on the quality of each individual track and the cohesiveness of the album as a whole. To be eligible for this list, the album needs to be released in the U.S. between December 1, 2006 and November 30, 2007. The following albums have scored highest this year so far. I update these Standings every time an album or albums break into my Top 20.

Update: This week The Veils enter the Top 10 with Nux Vomica. Fans of bands like Suede, The Divine Comedy, Pulp and The Smiths are likely to enjoy them. Meanwhile, the third album from CocoRosie, The Adventures of Ghosthorse and Stillborn, gets bumped off the list.
