My Year in Lists — 2017

I did think about doing more than just albums, but, to be quite frank, I’m not sure it would be that interesting. I’ve watched 1 film that was released this year, Manchester By The Sea; I thought that was excellent. I’ve played 1 game; Super Mario Odyssey. That too, is excellent. I’ve enjoyed every gig I’ve attended also. Glastonbury was a blast. I’ve found some pretty good coffee shops, all of which serve great coffee. Can I tell the difference? No. So, here are my 10 favourite albums of 2017. In no real order.

  • Cigarettes After SexCigarettes After Sex
  • Phoebe BridgersStranger in the Alps
  • Broken Social SceneHug Of Thunder
  • The xxI See You
  • Howie PayneMountain
  • Mark Lanegan BandGargoyle
  • MogwaiEvery Country’s Sun
  • Shout Out LoudsEase My Mind
  • RideWeather Diaries
  • The War on DrugsA Deeper Understanding

Notable mentions: Liam GallagherAs You Were; Baxter DuryPrince of Tears; Big ThiefCapacity; British Sea PowerLet The Dancers Inherit The Party; Four TetNew Energy; Hello SkinnyWatermelon Sun; The NationalSleep Well Beast.

All in all, a pretty good year for music.
Have a good Christmas and New Year.
