Outside of Nas' Hip Hop Is Dead there isn't much to speak of in new releases yet for 2007. In fact, not until January 23 is there much to report, with Deerhoof's Friend Opportunity, and The Shins' Wincing The Night Away. Then, on January 30, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah's Some Loud Thunder, Norah Jones' Not Too Late (I like some of her stuff, alright?), and the yet-to-be-proven-not-to-be-overrated Lily Allen's Alright, Still.
Definitely some winners coming down the road in February, but hey, we'll cross that bridge when we come to it. For now, click on the above links to see more about the albums and to pre-order them at Amazon, if that's your thing.
