Best albums of 2017
« on: Thu, 2017-12-28, 13:18:00 »
What did we all make of music in 2017 ? Which albums worked for us and which didn't

Two I enjoyed were E by Enslaved and Emperor of sand by Mastodon

Too early for a definite top-10 yet, but my number 1 will certainly be:
Leprous - Malina

And I've heard very beautiful albums from:
Alan Reed, John Mitchell's 'Lonely Robot', Bjorn Riis, Knight Area and Soup. Slightly disappointed in: Ayreon and Anathema ...

I'm almost ready with my top 20. Emperor of Sand is in it as well, maybe even in the top ten.
Briliant album.
It will also contain a disappoinment of the year. ;)

It shouldn't be long now.
The last contestant for the top-whatever list arrived today, though I already heard the album on Spotify.
But the artwork and the music, darn...it's good. :) *building the tension.

02 : Black Country Communion ~ IV
03 : The Tangent ~ The Slow Rust of Forgotten Machinery

04 : Leprous ~ Malina
05 : Von Hertzen Brothers ~ War is Over
06 : Ayreon ~ The Source
07 : Mastodon ~ Emperor of Sand
08 : Barock Project ~ Detachment
09 : Caligula's Horse ~ In Contact
10 : Soul Doubt ~ The Dance of Light and Shade

11 : Anathema ~ The Optimist
12 : Gösta Berlings Saga ~ Sersophane

18 : Threshold ~ Legends of the Shire
19 : Sons of Apollo ~ Psychotic Symphony
20 : Lunatic Soul ~ Fractured
21 : Odd Logic ~ Effigy

½ : Steven Wilson ~ To the Bone.
Wilson's album spot on the list is out of courtesy because of his previous albums and the albums of PT.
There are some tracks on the album that reminds me of PT, Lightbulb Sun for instance but overall his Wilson-goes-pop experiment is not for my liking.
Worst album he has ever made.
