My Top 17 Albums Of 2017 #1

Before we get to the Number One, here's the full countdown. I reckon the bottom two have already been elbowed off the chart by a couple of better albums I'm currently listening to, but I'll have to leave those for the new year...

17. Father John Misty - Pure Comedy

16. The National - Sleep Well, Beast

15. The Menzingers - After The Party

14. Weezer - Pacific Daydream

13. Grandaddy - Last Place

12. Foxygen - Hang

11. Brad Paisley - Love And War

10. Phoebe Bridgers - Stranger In The Alps

9. Jason Isbell & The 400 Unit - The Nashville Sound

8. Jarvis Cocker & Chilly Gonzales - Room 29

7. Aimee Mann - Mental Illness

6. Craig Finn - We All Want The Same Things

5. Sun Kil Moon - Common as Light and Love Are Red Valleys of Blood / Jesu & Sun Kil Moon - 30 Seconds to the Decline of Planet Earth / Mark Kozelek with Ben Boye & Jim White

4. Morrissey - Low In High School

3. The Magnetic Fields - 50 Song Memoir

2. Jens Lekman - Life Will See You Now

The death of Little England through Brexit, parochialism and Saville. This staggering musical banishing spell urges hope.

More here.

And especially here.

That was 2017. Who knows what 2018 will bring? That new Manic album sounds promising... and it'll be good to have First Aid Kit back.

  1. I'll say this Rol.....that was a rundown unlike any other that I'v read for 2017.

    Brilliant idea to restrict each review to so few words. And well done on achieving it.
