For this week's Buzzworthy challenge I asked you to tell me about your favorite albums of 2007 so far, and you came back with some awesomely varied picks. I kicked things off with Andrew Bird's Armchair Apocrypha and Amy Winehouse's Back in Black, though I also recently reviewed — and loved! — mallomar's suggestion of Feist's The Reminder. In addition to mallomar's pick, check out these other notable Buzzworthied albums:
Timbaland, Shock Value
Chosen by LoveStoned, who says, "There are some collaborations in here that may be questionable at first, like Fall Out Boy, the Hives, or She Wants Revenge. But what may seem awkward at first (to you at, least) seems almost second nature by the end of the disc. Shock Value is a far-reaching and ambitious disc; a masterpiece, even, in its own way."

yiddidea loves this album, as evidenced in her excellent review. For the Buzzworthy challenge, she included this comment: "It is simply solid, entertaining soul and r&b sounds from one of the best new voices out there."
