Albums of the Year Lists: 2017 Edition


#1

Rough Trade are the first to blink

Bitch and moan below


Rough Trade Albums Of The Year. The polls start already
#2

Only heard big thief of those, but any list with Ryan Adams on lacks credibility


#3

The Thurston Moore and Beck albums have similar covers don’t they?


#4

That is too early


#5

Liam Gallagher is suspiciously high on that list


#6

It’s good to see Here Lies Man and Jane Weaver so high on the list I guess.


#7

Aye, this smacks of Rough Trade hovering their finger over the Post button until the split-second after the Bjork album was released.


#8

It’s a shame that Childhood missed out on the top 10. Great album.


#9

Can’t be arsed with the Rough Trade one. Anyone able to tell if albums from the last sixth of last year are included, or do all November-December albums now fall into a RT black hole?


#10

I love the Ryan Adams album but…yeah. The fact that he did a couple of high profile in-stores there (London and NY) and just today released an exclusive Live At Rough Trade album are probably just coincidences, right?


#11

The absence of Whores or A Tribe Called Quest would suggest not, as either would surely be included in any top 20 of the last 12 calendar months.


#12

No Moonlandingz in the entire 100 clearly means they are both fools and communists and must be ignored.


#13

aren’t moonlandingz communists tho?


#14

No St. Vincent? Seems surprising for RT.

I love the Aldous Harding record - although I’m surprised it’s No.1. Maybe a good sales boosting choice - a record that is a little under the radar but with the potential for relatively mainstream success?

What are the records that will crop up in every list?
Kendrick
Slowdive
Kelly Lee Owens
?
There’s no real consensus record this year is there like To Pimp was for example?


#15

Piccadilly Records

Big Thief at 40 … what!

#16

I’d be more outraged with anything that placed 86 or below.


#17

Joke regarding Big Thief. Piccadilly lists are always awful.


#18

Bring on the list from Norman records, the Wire and Quietus. These are normally decent and worth investigating.


#19

looking forward to the Wire list. normally buy every issue, but I’ve not bought it since the start of the year.


#20

Uncut
