Rllmuk's Favourite Albums of 2017 - List Thread (open until 31 December)

Recommended Posts

This is a companion thread to https://www.rllmukforum.com/index.php?/topic/297106-best-new-music-of-2017/ - if you've already posted there and would like your favourites to be part of the compiled list, please post your results here - feel free to list up to 10 albums - in this format:

 

Position - Artist - Album

 

for example,

 

01 - Hans Zimmer & Benjamin Wallfisch - Blade Runner 2049 OST
02 - Goldfrapp - Silver Eye
03 - Jane Weaver - Modern Kosmology

 

PLEASE DON'T POST ANY OPINIONS OR RESPONSES - OR NEGS - TO OTHER FORUMITES' CHOICES IN THIS THREAD - you can do that in https://www.rllmukforum.com/index.php?/topic/297106-best-new-music-of-2017/


The spaces and hyphens between position, artist and album are really important as it means that I can import the text straight into Excel without having to piss about with reformatting, and also I can reuse the 2008/2009/2010/2011/2012/2013/2014/2015/2016 spreadsheet ;-) . I'll leave this thread running until the end of 31 December.

You can edit your list as much as you like - I won't compile them until I close the thread.

 

If you have any questions then PM me - if the answer is useful to others I'll add it to this post, below.

 

Q - Are reissues allowed?
A - As long as the reissue date is in 2017, yes.

Q - Are EPs allowed?
A - Yes.

There is only one good album this year and it's the best produced album ever created. It's a sonic masterpiece by a 20 something in a small bedroom with a keyboard and a guitar.

 

1, David Maxim Micic - Who Bit The Moon

01 - Lingua Ignota - All Bitches Die

 

I'll have a look for the rest of my ten favourites this year later but this extraordinary record is head and shoulders the most impressive album I've heard not only this year but for many years. It's a very uncomfortable listen but it is also an absolutely essential one.
