Best Albums of 2017


The Top Ten

1 Damn. - Kendrick Lamar

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

King Kendrick always brings the heat and never fails to disappoint.

If I got to vote for Damn., I'm a make it look sexy. - cjWriter1997

Just Damn

2 Melodrama - Lorde

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!

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

3 A Crow Looked at Me - Mount Eerie

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

Easily the best album on this list so far - Jiorl

If I'm gonna vote for this instead of DAMN, I'ma make it look sexy. - djpenquin999

4 After Laughter - Paramore

This should be #1! One of the best comebacks I've seen! - UltimateCraig

5 Rainbow - Kesha

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

Ok, so I'm very happy she's in a better place and is making music she loves. It's great that she's happy and healthy. But, if I'm being honest, this is my least favorite album from her so far. I don't know if that makes me a terrible person or not, but that's my two cents. It's still good though. - ProPanda

This is so good... - AlphaQ

6 Two Hearts - Jackie Evancho

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!

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.

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.

This is a two-disc album featuring Jackie's further explorations in classical crossover and pop, including four songs written by Jackie herself. Plenty of vocal versatility, a full hour of music for the money. - BobG

7 Pure Comedy - Father John Misty
8 Flower Boy - Tyler, the Creator

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

Very underrated wrk by his creativity. Obly thing I didn't like was Who Dat Boi. - AlphaQ

Top 3 required. Tyler is much better these days. 10/10 ~ AlphaQ

9 Neō Wax Bloom - Iglooghost
10 Arca - Arca

Proves that the phrase "don't judge a book by it's cover" also applies to albums. - djpenquin999

Look at that face and tell me you wouldn't vote for it.
