This has been a challenging year in music as there have been few things that have jumped out at me as being all-time classics, much less favorites for 2017. To add to the struggle a lot of artists that I’ve counted on to produce great music put out new albums this year including Beck, Björk, Blitzen Trapper, Flaming Lips, Gorrillaz, The New Pornographers, Shamir, St. Vincent, and The xx. What should’ve been a bumper crop of music was dissapointing, and while I would not say that any of these artists’ albums were bad, I believe that could have done better. I don’t know, maybe I’m missing the great music of 2017, and if that is the case please direct to me to those great tunes ASAP.
Nevertheless, her are six albums from 2017 that I loved, with links to the original reviews. Check them out!
