Best Albums of 2017


The Contenders: Page 3

41 Masseduction - St. Vincent
42 Clairvoyant - The Contortionist
43 Peasant - Richard Dawson
44 Feder Gottes - Entetainment

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.

45 World Eater - Blanck Mass
46 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).

47 Bravado - Kirin J. Callinan
48 This Old Dog - Mac Demarco
49 Saturation III - Brockhampton
50 Look at Yourself - Emmure
51 Feed the Machine - Nickelback

I'm not too into Nickelback, and Kroeger is the biggest douche, but this album sounds much better than anything I've heard from them before. - benhos

Nickelback is simply an awesome rock band. All of their albums are maximum fun, with plenty of earworms, and just the right mixture of fun and seriousness, heaviness and softness, poppiness and anarchy. Well, maybe not all. "Here and Now" was just mediocre with little memorable content, and "No Fixed Address" was Nickelback's answer to Linkin Park's "Living Things" - pop throughout, but by a band that has no idea of how full pop is supposed to sound like. Now I'm glad to say that "Feed the Machine" is Nickelback as they should be. There are some heavy tracks that even have a bit of criticism, some heartfelt ballads, and overall many memorable potential hits to enjoy. And the title track ranks among their best songs to date, with thoughtful lyrics and the most powerful music and melody they ever had.

I must say, as a fan I'm absolutely satisfied, it at least doubled my expectations. - Martin_Canine

52 All-Amerikkkan Badass - Joey Bada$$

Should be top 10 easy

53 American Teen - Khalid
54 Homey - Chon
55 Just Say No to the Psycho Right-Wing Capitalist Fascist Industrial Death Machine - Gnod
56 Synthesis - Evanescence
57 Dua Lipa - Dua Lipa

This album was a pleasant surprise. I hated Blow Your Mind, but this was a solid pop record. Good job. - ProPanda

58 Emperor of Sand - Mastodon
59 Relatives in Descent - Protomartyr
60 To the Bone - Steven Wilson
