Albums of the Year Lists: 2017 Edition


#121

Arcade Fire is number 11


#122

There’s a woman in that band, so it’s a bold left-field choice - argument invalid


#123

it’s also irredeemably shite


#124

Stop making my glib snarky comment into an actual discussion of the list please! That’s not what I come to a music forum for thank you very much


#125

Chat shit get banged m8


#126

nice to see Tinariwen get a high placing though


#127

Great list from Norman, as always: https://www.normanrecords.com/features/albums-of-the-year-2017


#128

Bleep keep it nice and concise (unless they have 200 sub-genre lists to follow of course):


#129

Good to see Brainwaltzera well up there. Top 5 of the year for me.


#130

Yeah that was new to me. Been listening to it this afternoon - it’s great. Do you know if it is actually Aphex Twin?


#131

Just discovered it too thanks to Bleep. Love it!! It sounds like Aphex. Song titles look like aphex too.


#132

That is one hell of a DiS-friendly list.:rofl: Anyway, lots of stuff for me to explore and/or revisit, which is really the point of all these year end lists, right? To get to check out all that stuff that - for one reason or another - went under the radar …


#133

the careening blues metal of “Turtleneck”

metal?


#134

Physical release was this year, there was a weird pre-release on certain digital platforms


#135

blues metal


#136

Number 7 on the list is brilliant. Dismissed it initially but after seeing it on the norm list have gave it a revisit:

Check it!


#137

+1 - been enjoying this album this year. On my longer list of albums of the year for sure.


#138

If it is Aphex, he’s back on form at last! Syro didn’t do it for me, neither those recent EPs.


#139

Sister Ray Records

#140

Hype Williams is the curveball on that list isn’t it? I actually really like it but I’ve sort of become a recent Dean&Inga convert so it’s up my street.
Ride LP high up too. Didn’t think that had been well received but I’m obviously wrong on that as it seems to be making a few lists.
