2017 Album Of The Year - Initial Voting

365 posts in this topic

Before I start, a HUGE shout out to my friends in Currents for releasing their first full length -- The Place I Feel Safest -- and having it be album of June on Kingdom Leaks. They didn't make my top ten, but I want the admins to recognize my vote for them. Easily top ten of the year if you're into progressive metal/core. Another shout out to my friends in Lesser Men who released Biding Time this year, their first full length is fantastic as well; for fans of Defeater and Touche Amore.

 

Julien Baker - Turn Out The Lights is probably the most slept on album on this forum, let alone of the year. Fantastic musicianship: singing, songwriting, dynamics, use of effects and amps, performance. She's incredible. I would highly recommend it to anyone who's willing to give it a chance.

 

The albums I enjoyed the most are my top 4. The others are sorta thrown in to fill the list because they're good and I listened to them quite a bit, they're just not as good as my top 4.

 

With that said, my Top Ten Albums of the Year are:

 

1) Julien Baker - Turn Out The Lights

2) Counterparts - You're Not You Anymore

3) Movements - Feel Something

4) Pinegrove - Elsewhere

5) Citizen - As You Please

6) Sorority Noise - You're Not As ___ As You Think

7) Kublai Khan - Nomad

8) End - From The Unforgiving Arms of God

9) Hundredth - RARE

10) Hearts Like Lions - If I Never Speak Again

 

Honorable Mentions:

 

True View - Stick To Your Guns

Crises - A Loss For Words (released December 31, 2016, but should be included)

Deep in a Hole - Such Gold

Shapeshifter - Knuckle Puck

False Idol - Veil Of Maya

spin - Tiger's Jaw

No Future - Conveyer

Pain And Suffering - Advent

Waiting For Morning To Come - Being As An Ocean

Forever - Code Orange

Fail You Again - Can't Swim

The Last Living Man Alive Ever in the History of the World - Head North

Thousand Mile Stare - Incendiary

OML made a giant leap on my rankings after the death of Chester, not purely from emotion, but because the context of the album took a drastic change when I realized it was basically his suicide note, and he managed to turn his pain into something beautiful one last time.
