Charli released Number 1 Angel early on in 2017, you should definitely give it a go, easily top 3 of the year for me (and yeah it’s technically a mixtape, but what is a mixtape but a free album? and there’s at least 1 EP on the list anyway). I think it’s her best work, she’s been allowed to let loose and make a record that sounds like she wants it to, free of label meddling in it, which I think it what made Sucker come out sounding less good than it should’ve.
RTJ was like the last day of 2016 or something, and physical release didn’t show up until 2017. With it being released in time to make precisely nobody’s 2016 AotY, and it being a fucking great album, would’ve thought it would have a strong showing in this year’s.
