Best Albums of 2017


The Contenders: Page 5

81 Luv is Rage 2 - Lil Uzi Vert

Good for Uzi standards. 444+222/10 - AlphaQ

82 Lust for Life - Lana Del Rey

AH - haribostarmix

83 Sturmfahrt - Eisbrecher
84 Out of Silence - Neil Finn

Quite amazed this album isn't on this list just yet as it is one of the most beautiful albums that Neil Finn has ever made and that's not discounting Crowded House's "Woodface" from the early 90s but from the outset "Out of Silence" just stuns with its production with the lone track that could possibly have fit on "Dizzy Heights" being the poppy "Second Nature" (one of the best pop songs of the year.

Then there's the collaboration with his brother Tim on "Alone" which yet again was a reminder of their wonderful harmonies on "Woodface" and the Finn Brothers projects. "Terrorise Me" is a song that will stick with you especially given the subject matter is terrorism or the terrorist attack at the Bataclan in Paris. Neil does tackle some really challenging subject material like police brutality etc. - crowdiegal

85 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

86 I Decided. - Big Sean
87 Flying Microtonal Banana - King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard
88 Road Less Traveled - Lauren Alaina
89 No Shape - Perfume Genius
90 What Do You Think About the Car - Declan McKenna

Declan McKenna is my second favorite

91 Gangsta Bitch Music Vol. 2 - Cardi B

Cardi B can gladly take the title "Newcomer of the Year", and if her 2017 mixtape “GBM Vol. 2” was only the warm-up, I can’t wait for what’s to come.

Like most people I guess, I discovered her through her breakthrough hit “Bodak Yellow”, which topped the American charts but was completely ignored in Germany - if Rap Critic wouldn’t have reviewed it, I probably would have never discovered it. I immediately got hooked. This is pure flow and personality. This is more than just a cool jam, Cardi B dominates and rides the beat with her musical vocal delivery, and claims the throne by baring her claws lyrically. Now, “GBM Vol. 2” was released months before that, and also before she got a major label contract. I did only expect to hear the potential she would later fully live out - and what I got was one of my favorite records of the year.

Cardi B manages to develop character traits, world views and quirks over a duration of mere 28 minutes. But more ...more - Martin_Canine

92 The Death of Pablo - The Pablo Collective
93 Future - Future

If It Wasn't For Mask Off I Would've Hated It. - AlphaQ

94 HNDRXX - Future
95 How to Flex & Troll a Scene - Dat Adam

After on their smash debut album "Hydra 3D" German cyber hippie leading figures DatAdam let out all their anger at this world in gripping tracks like "Sanageyama" and celebrated their modern scifi influenced flower-power attitude on "Ghidora/Legobricks", and actually managed to turn a generation of young teenagers into aware and caring rebels that use their minds and hearts instead of following each new trend, and actually feel the music, listen to the lyrics and appreciate the overall experience,... they decided to release a 20 minute long EP attacking the German hip hop scene. Thinking most modern German rap is out dated and complaining that even though they adore this genre there are only a handful of good MCs (I don't share their point of view), they go on full rage mode while still remaining funny and light hearted on the 7 tracks (including a 1 minute instrumental intro by producer Marley) that sound anything like regular hip hop, and has way more ...more - Martin_Canine

96 Memories... Do Not Open - The Chainsmokers
97 Para Quienes Aún Viven - Exquirla
98 Last Young Renegade - All Time Low

It's not their best album by any means, but it beats everything else released this year. - JesseStump

99 M A N I A - Fall Out Boy

It's been delayed. Now the release date is January 19, 2018. It's a shame, but I rather wait a couple more months and get good songs than have them releasing it next month but have all the songs be horrible. - Kokopawley

This album isn't even out yet! - railfan99

This isn't 2017 - Th3Zm0nst3r

100 Science Fiction - Brand New

I was expecting good things from this comeback. It exceeded my expectations. - Zach808
