    Default Dynamic Top Albums of 2017

    Seeing as how we're now comfortably into February of this year, it seems like a proper time to start up this thread.

    Just as previous editions, feel free to share your top ten (or more) albums of 2017 here and update it throughout the year as your see fit.

    This thread is not intended to be for on-going discussion about albums, or to replace the year-end lists threads. Instead, this will serve as a quick reference for album recommendations by us all as the year unfolds. So ideally, one post per person in this thread should be entirely sufficient. For actual discussion of this year's albums, check out the Tell Us About 2017 Releases thread or other related threads on this forum.

    For more info, see prior threads from 2014-2016.


    My 2017 rundown (as of 02/24):

    1. Ty Segall - Self-Titled
    2. King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard - Flying Microtonal Banana
    3. The Brian Jonestown Massacre - Don't Get Lost
    4. Bonobo - Migration
    5. Oddisee - The Iceberg
    6. Meatbodies - Alice
    7. Cherry Glazerr - Apocalipstick

    Started a Collaborative playlist on Spotify for this.

    If it got more than 2 votes on here it should be on there.

    The full King Gizzard isn't up yet nor is the Ty Segall. Grandaddy only has the one song up there as well.

    It's collaborative so keep it going, nerds.
