Billboard has released The Year In Charts 2007, looking at the “chart year,” which runs from December 2006 to November 2007. The fact that the majority of the albums on these charts were actually released in 2006—or eariler—doesn’t seem to bother anybody (except the nitpricks at Percolator).
Some interesting positions from the Year-end Albums – The Billboard 200 chart:
7 FUTURESEX/LOVESOUNDS Justin Timberlake
12 GRADUATION Kanye West
14 LOVE The Beatles
24 BACK TO BLACK Amy Winehouse
66 MY DECEMBER Kelly Clarkson
76 ICKY THUMP The White Stripes
90 MEMORY ALMOST FULL Paul McCartney
110 FINDING FOREVER Common
116 YEAR ZERO Nine Inch Nails
118 ALRIGHT, STILL… Lily Allen
122 WINCING THE NIGHT AWAY The Shins
126 WE WERE DEAD BEFORE THE SHIP EVEN SANK Modest Mouse
128 ROCK N ROLL JESUS Kid Rock
149 THE REMINDER Feist
154 BEGIN TO HOPE Regina Spektor
163 FACE THE PROMISE Bob Seger
165 ZEITGEIST The Smashing Pumpkins
180 STILL THE SAME… GREAT ROCK CLASSICS OF OUR TIME Rod Stewart
186 THE GREATEST SONGS OF THE SIXTIES Barry Manilow
190 NEON BIBLE Arcade Fire
198 SKY BLUE SKY Wilco
200 THE PICK OF DESTINY (SOUNDTRACK) Tenacious D
No surprise, I suppose, that most of the halfway-decent albums are in the bottom half of the chart… But congrats, anyway, to all who charted!
Lots more year-end charts.

…’Rock & Roll Jesus’?
Well you know, it’s nice to know that the Shins and Modest Mouse both sold more records than homeboy from Detroit.
