Best Albums of 2017


The Contenders: Page 3

41 Crack-Up - Fleet Foxes
42 Youth - Tinie Tempah
43 Relaxer - Alt-J

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).

44 In the Passing Light of Day - Pain of Salvation

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

45 Exuvia - The Ruins of Beverast
46 From a Room: Volume 1 - Chris Stapleton
47 Digital Distortion - Iggy Azalea

This Will Suck Unless Iggy Shows Talent - VideoGamefan5

There's a ZEDD collab on here. If Iggy ruins ZEDD for me... - ProPanda

48 The Ride - Nelly Furtado

After just having listened to it for the first time, I really don't know what to make of this album. The first few songs sound like she tried to jump on this art pop thing Beyoncé and Rihanna successfully tried out in 2016, but doesn't really reach their quality, as she loses all her pop appeal completely and makes the songs unnecessarily challenging to listen to. Furtado already was extremely creative with her pop music and was, more than anything, a gifted songwriter. "Folklore" and "The Spirit Indestructible", while not her most popular albums, interpolated so many different genres, moods and textures while still sounding catchy and easy to listen to, that it already kind of was art pop before it was cool. And then, before the second half, it appears Furtado suddenly re-discovered the pop roots and combined them with the unusual production. "Sticks and Stones" is simply an earworm, despite a very druggy and experimental beatwork. The same goes for what follows afterwards, ...more - Martin_Canine

49 Mouth Moods - Neil Cicierega V 1 Comment
50 Forget - Xiu Xiu

After listening to their hauntingly beautiful Twin Peaks cover album, I can't wait to see what this album comes up with. - djpenquin999

51 The Grinding Wheel - Overkill

If only we can also get this into the top 10 - christangrant

Get this in the top 10 - christangrant

This album was mediocre. 4/10 for effort. Kreator's album is better. - IronSabbathPriest
