Top Ten Best Albums of 1997

Magnolia

The Top Ten

1 Radiohead - OK Computer

What?!?!? This below Shania Twain. People that didn't vote this obviously didn't have the chance to listen to one of many of Radiohead's masterpieces.

Good album but overrated. - ZeroBlaster

2 Shania Twain - Come On Over

One of the best albums ever recorded. Shania never disappoints me. Every single song here is brilliant. My most favorite tracks are "You're Still the One", "That Don't Impress Me Much", "You've Got a Way" - Irina2932

3 Aerosmith - Nine Lives
4 Bjork - Homogenic
5 Anggun - Snow On The Sahara
6 Godspeed You! Black Emperor - F♯a♯∞
7 Deftones - Around the Fur
8 Janet Jackson - The Velvet Rope
9 Metallica - Reload
10 Modest Mouse - The Lonesome Crowded West

As a depressed, lonely, bitter teenager living in the suburbs, I feel like I have a moral obligation to call this my favourite album of 1997. - BlarchBlaces

An unpopular opinion, but I do prefer this to OK Computer. Nothing beats Kid A, though. - Sop
