    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 you 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.

    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.

    Was just thinking about updating my list haha...I'm going to add King Gizzard's latest, although I don't like it so far as much as Flying Microtonal Banana. Beach Fossil's latest has been awesome, as well as the debut album from Mountaineer (Sirens & Slumber) and Floating Points' Reflections: Mojave Desert.

    And I'm probably forgetting a couple others off the top of my head, but these are the recent ones I've discovered and loved.

    Lee Bains III and the Glory Fires, Hurray for the Riff Raff and Bash & Pop ruling the roost for me. Jason Isbell's new one, Spoon and and Laura Marling are also right up there. But Bains' record and HFTRR are both something else.

    ETA after a bottle of red: good lord, NIN aside, the Twin Peaks Return Soundtrack is astonishing. If that counts as an album... then that wins.

    ETAA oh and Big Thief. That's just magnificent as well. 2017 has been incredible.

    I'll probably list a top 5 or top 10 closer to the end of the year, but I can certainly say now that The War on Drugs will be somewhere on the list with "A Deeper Understanding."

    I like the war on drugs, but for me, it takes a lot of repeatedly listens before I get it. Truth be told, it will be in my top 30, but I'm not sure where. If I had to make one right now for the top 10 ( in no order):

    1. Ty Segall-S/T
    2. Alvvays-Antisocialites
    3. Slowdive-S/T
    4. Kelly Lee Owens-S/T
    5. Kendrick Lamar-DAMN.
    6. The Drums-Abysmal Thoughts
    7. Grizzly Bear-Painted Ruins
    8. King Gizz-Microtonal
    9. Sampha-Process
    10. Syd-Fin
