Best Albums of 2017


The Contenders: Page 3

41 Is This the Life We Really Want? - Roger Waters

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.

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

Simply amazing. Roger Waters is a genius. - naFrovivuS

42 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

43 I See You - The xx
44 Feed the Machine - Nickelback

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

45 The Underside of Power - Algiers
46 Youth - Tinie Tempah
47 4:44 - Jay-Z

To all the haters of hip hop music please give this a listen it's awesome

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 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

50 Azd - Actress
51 Exuvia - The Ruins of Beverast
52 Chuck - Chuck Berry
53 Mouth Moods - Neil Cicierega V 1 Comment
54 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

55 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

56 Obituary - Obituary
57 Something to Tell You - HAIM
58 Only When We're Naked - Zak Abel
59 The Dime Trap - T.I.
60 Everybody - Logic

You know you're good when you have the power to dethrone
