Best Albums of 2017JustListen
The Top Ten
Voting for this. Rules pretty much everything early 2017 did. We needed something phenomenal to save us from early 2017 which wasn't very good. Although this isn't as good as TPAB this is absolutely amazing as a whole. 10/10 - AlphaQ
First time listening to this album, while I thought it was really good, I felt it to be a step down from GKMC and TPAB, but the more I listened to it, the more it hooked me and the more I began to understand the feeling, messages, and mood of it. As a result, this album not longer was a 4/5, it's simply a straight 5 because it gets messages across in such a awkward and subtle way that it made it much more unique compared to the more straightforward TPAB. Kendrick is on his darkest tone here, and I may seem crazy for this, but this just may be my favorite album from him yet. - Mcgillacuddy
Kendrick finally became a mainstream artist with this one - Iam_rsdxii
Although it didn’t live up to To Pimp a Butterfly and Good Kid, M.A.A.D. City, DAMN. still amazes. - katman46V 5 Comments
I'm gonna have to say that this album has to be the best of 2017 so far. Melodrama is more breathtaking, melodic, experimental, and ecstatic than any album that has come out this year. Indie pop never sounded so fresh before Melodrama!
I'm crazy with it melodrama is the best 2017 album because it has a big evolution on pop - Joaopuffle1
Nothing comes close to the artistic masterpiece! probobly one of the most uniquest albums I've ever heard in my life. The Songwriting is genius, the Production is Mind-Blowing, and the whole tracklist is cohesive and expresses the theme of Solitude. ONE OF THE BEST ALBUMS EVER MADE! - Bayano1
Best. Album. Ever.
I'm wearing a Lorde shirt as I type this.
I wish this album got all the attention this year, and not that stupid Reputation by Taylor Swift album.
Can't really argue with the top two, the third one I haven't listened to, so I guess all I can do is try to tell everyone what a heartbreaking album this is. The lyrics confront themes of death and are often self-confrontational. The instrumentation may be simple but it is never over-indulgent and it is quite beautiful actually. And Phil's voice on this album is his most subtly heartbreaking yet... probably because every word coming out of his mouth is sadly true. As an album, every song works together to build one big story and it is very cohesive. To say the least, I'm just happy this album is getting the recognition that it doesn't necessarily deserve, but the recognition that Phil desperately needs to carry on with his screwed-up life.
This album is something I would sleep to, then cry the following morning. - djpenquin999
Lol seeing this at #2 pleases me in a special way. - ProPanda
This grew on me lol - DCfnafV 2 Comments
I admit I wasn't a fan of Kesha until I heard "Praying" and was stunned by the overwhelming maturity of that song, it would have been quite easy and understandable if she'd wanted to make something bitter but "Rainbow" as an album is in no way bitter and shows Kesha is moving forward, I loved it and the collaborations with the Eagles of Death Metal are inspired, "Let 'Em Talk" really does need to be a single. - crowdiegal
This isn't Number 1 for some reason. Are you joking? Please move this up! One of the best albums I've heard in a long time. - DCfnaf
Definite contender for album of the year. SO rooting for Kesha right now! - tonyb500
WHY ISN'T THIS #1!?!?V 6 Comments
This is Krule’s best album
Who is this loser and why is he over Taylor Swift
Get Reputation higher! Get this lower! - musickid84
I can make better songs than Look What You Made Me Do without experience in music production. - DCfnaf
There is music, and then there is musical masterpiece. "Two Hearts" by Jackie Evancho is a musical masterpiece. Buy this. Buy several copies and share.
Here is why Jackie is so great on this album. Purity and Beauty. And if you listen real close, you find out that every intonation, every inflection is put together perfectly for the perfect effect! Guys! This is not just talk! Listen! The more you listen the more you won't believe your ears!
If you like auto-tuned, pulse-beating, sycophantic jingoism, Jackie Evancho isn't for you. "Two Hearts" is a compilation of intelligent, professional, vocal mastery and nuance, from the classical offerings on part I, to the personal, heartfelt gifts Jackie brings to her own songs on part II. When it comes to real music, "Two Hearts" is certainly the best offering for 2017.
Just love everything about Jackie💙V 29 Comments
This should be #1! One of the best comebacks I've seen! - UltimateCraig
Incredible - haribostarmix
How can I explain this? This is a wonderful job by Tyler the Creator. We finally found his best album! This is so good. It's hot everything good from every other album combined and tales away everything bad. This is easily one of the best album of 2016 AND 2017 along with DAMN and deserves Top 3. Tyler should try being awesome. 9/10 - AlphaQ
I know I'll probably get some negative backlash for this but I juat can't stand this recent uber artsiness in popular music genres anymore. I loved it when Kanye did it with "My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy" and "Yeezus", he just didn't a damn anymore what's trending and heavily experimented to get two gripping and extremely rough experiences. Then pop did it too. Miley released a fairly psychadelic album. It was good. Rihanna's varied "Anti" was a welcome departure from the exchangable and forgettable house songs she released the years before. Beyoncé showed that she can be more than just a singer of pop hits. It was fine until that, but now it's enough. I want to have some good old fun with popular music again. "Flower Boy" takes it a bit too far, and to be honest, I even don't like Lamar's "To Pimp a Butterfly". There, I said it. Not in any way because of the rapping. It is just that these chaotic, unstructured, barely ...more - Martin_Canine
Tyler's magnum opus. One of the best hip hop records I've heard in a long time. - ProPanda
Better than Cherry Bomb at least...V 5 Comments
I LOVE THIS ALBUM.
Best songs: Prom, Garden (Say It Like Dat), Go Gina, The Weekend, Love Galore.
Worst song: Doves In The Wind
Overall 10/10. Really underrated
They came back full throttle with this amazing album. 10/10 - naFrovivuS
The biggest surprise of 2017. - Metal_Treasure
I've been a Deep Purple fan since 1968. (It's OK to like Deep Purple and Jackie Evancho as well ;) ) - BobG
Get this masterpiece into the top 10 - christangrant
Yay its in the top 10 now - christangrant
I was expecting good things from this comeback. It exceeded my expectations. - Zach808
Having some time to think this over, I've realized my mistake. I was honestly just riding the wave of DAMN.'s popularity. It was a pretty good album but it ain't got nothing on 4:44. The definite standout track was The Story Of OJ. Generally, all the people who are "fake" hip-hop fans will have stopped listening before the first time he sings the chorus ends. I'll write more on The Story Of OJ later though. I love this album, it's probably one of the best Jay-Z albums behind The Blueprint and The Black Album. Just very high quality. - hiphopgod
To all the haters of hip hop music please give this a listen it's awesome
This should be so much higher like top 5 jesus...
This album should be much higher. - Pony
Is this the album we really want? Well, this is his first solo album in over a decade. I see myself dusting it off every now and then. Similar to "the Final Cut" but I'd actually say better. But I preferred David Gilmour's latest album. I give this a 6/10. - IronSabbathPriest
I am a huge Pink Floyd Fan and I found this was a more politically correct version of Animals but that doesn't stop it from being the best album of 2017 beating my second choice of Infinite by Deep purple. Better than anything Little Mix could pull out of their millions of writers.
Simply amazing. Roger Waters is a genius. - naFrovivuS
Oh damn, my opinion on this album sucked.
To prove it, allow me to say that Deja Vu and The Last Refugee are modern masterpieces. 7/10 - DCfnaf
So far, it's my favorite album of the year. - cjWriter1997
Since Damn. is already at #1, I'm voting for this. It's already getting hard for me to pick AOTY. - cjWriter1997
OH MY GOD HOW DID FOURTET MAKE IT IT HERE YES YES YES TALENT WON - ProPanda
This is easily one of my favourite albums of 2017. Probably my favourite. I don't understand why it's so low. It's pure gold and has an awesome range of style in it. I just realised that could have been a really bad pun.
Why is this so low? - 445956
Excellent - DCfnaf
Um...no - lovefrombadlands
Gotta be the best metal/ hardcore music of 2017
Probably their worst album, but still good!
Just got released- amazing album - CluelessSKB
While it doesn’t live up to Demon Days or Plastic Beach, Humanz starts to break down the barrier between the fictional band and real life - possibly symbolizing the increased dependence of people on technology and idols - katman46
Night visions will always be better - Th3Zm0nst3r
Evolve is good, however I have seen better from them like Smokes and Mirrors and Night Visions. - MissRWBY202
Have you heard Whatever It Takes? It is life. - lovefrombadlands
I'm a "believer" that this is the best album of 2017. I'll do "whatever it takes" to get it to number 1 I'll even "walk on the wire." There should be "thunder" in the sky right now because Evolve is not number 1
AH - haribostarmix
A really experimental indie album - Killerdrummer
An extemely promising debut album. This German rapper mixes horrorcore with dark religious imagery and lyrical skill. Considering he started off as a battle rapper I was stunned that there is actually some depth, and that instead of punchlines the main focus lies on atmosphere and the overall tone. And also that on some songs he actually talks about something like inner struggles or the downsides of his drug addiction. The beats are of exceptional quality and add to the overall experience.
I expected a SpongeBozz rip off, since both are German rappers who started off as battle rappers in the same tournament and wear yellow masks. But their music sounds entirely different: SpongeBozz still does what he did in battle rap tournaments - fast doubletime, hard hitting punchlines and multisyllabic rhymes - Entetainment abandoned battle rap, and created music that stands for itself, that's either dark and atmospheric horror music, or emotional claustrophobic songs. "Schwarze Sterne" ...more - Martin_Canine
This and After Laughter are the best so far. No doubt about it. - UltimateCraig
God, 2017 is a bad year for music. Thank god for this album.
This, After Laughter by Paramore, LANY by LANY and Ultralife by Oh Wonder are probably the best, in my opinion. I'm not sure if it is a 2017 album, but if it is, then Human (Deluxe) by Rag 'N' Bone Man is one of the best as well (I think it was released in February).
