Top Ten Best Albums of 1997

Magnolia

The Top Ten

1 Radiohead - OK Computer

Okay, so it's not the greatest album of all time (as many people regard it), but it's without a doubt the best of '97. At least in my opinion.

Good album but overrated. - ZeroBlaster

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.

2 Shania Twain - Come On Over

I don't even like country-pop music but this one is everything. Shania is a very charismatic artist

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 Bjork - Homogenic
4 Aerosmith - Nine Lives
5 Yes - Keys to Ascension 2
6 Anggun - Snow On The Sahara
7 Godspeed You! Black Emperor - F♯a♯∞
8 Metallica - Reload
9 Deftones - Around the Fur
10 Janet Jackson - The Velvet Rope

The Newcomers

? Robyn - Robyn is Here

The Contenders

11 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

13 Bryan Adams - MTV Unplugged
14 Incubus - S.C.I.E.N.C.E.
