We gathered our imaginary staff to determine our collective Northwest favorites for 2007. It was hard work. Imaginary battles were fought, alliances formed, and finally, winners emerged.
You should have seen the way that imaginary Liz can arm wrestle, and how Erik Gonzalez can duke it out for his favorite bands. It was fierce and fun, and we think our final list was well worth the effort.
Here they are: the TIG official editor picks for best Northwest releases of 2007. Enjoy!

Modest Mouse We Were Dead Before the Ship Even Sank (Epic)
