    I heard a song by Wolf Alice on my Discover Spotify playlist, and it was decent. There are way too many wolf bands.
    I miss talking to TomAz.

    We all do. I live in the same city as him (unless he relocated) and rumor has it that at 3:15am if you listen closely and its really really quiet you can hear him telling you to go fuck yourself.

    I’m surprised Fleet Foxes aren’t popping up higher on these lists, I was wrong about that and Tyler.

    Hilarious about Rolling Stone putting U2 at number 3. Are they obliged to put them in the top 5 every year they release an album?

    The Rolling Stone list is not that obviously different from the rest of these so far. Sure it's almost certainly overrated a U2 album again, but most of the things it picked are the vanilla consensus.

    Also here's the spreadsheet so you can watch the critical herding in real time.

    Glad to see Tori Amos get some love. Always liked her but tbh I didn't think Native Invade was one of her best.

    Seeing albums like Lorde's and Vince Staples so often baffles me. Just goes to show music is so subjective.

    That Lorde album is super boring and it's sad that the poptimists don't have anything better to ride on.

    I'm not usually into pure pop music but for some reason Melodrama clicks for me. Definitely a guilty pleasure.

    Disappointed that Feist hasn't been charting. Love her, too bad it doesn't seem people care for her new folkier sound and preferred her when she was more pop.

    While there weren't any specific standout songs from it for me, Pleasure as a whole is a really damn solid album that I'd listen to over half these other albums.

    Melodrama isn't my favorite album of the year, but it might be my favorite of the ones these lists are universally rallying around.

    I am a bit surprised that MASSEDUCTION is making into every top 10, though. It's solid, but Annie's set her own bar pretty high, and it doesn't quite match previous efforts for me.

    I really don't understand how that Lorde album is so high on these lists. I was not impressed. St Vincent, on the other hand, is probably my favorite of the year.

    The two are an interesting comparison of Jack Antonoff-i-ness. The Lorde album felt overwhelmed by his presence, whereas he slid in pretty seamlessly to popify St Vincent's quirks.

    When it comes to that genre I really really like Lust For Life. One of my favorite albums of the year. Many compare Lana and Lorde but to me, they're not even close. I was completely unimpressed by Melodrama but I'm seeing it on many more of these lists than Lust for Life. Go figure.

    I usually don't like to judge new albums from artists who have never clicked for me because any criticism would be inconsequential at that point. St Vincent & LCD are examples. Have never really got into their stuff so hard to criticize any new material. But artists who I've enjoyed before like Arcade Fire and Father John Misty, are another story. I thought Everything Now was shit, and although Pure Comedy wasn't necessarily bad, it wasn't what I was hoping for either.

    A lot of trashing of Lorde's Melodrama here - I'm not a huge fan, but I do feel the album is coming out about where it belongs this year for the following year for the following reasons...

    1. There were no great 5-star albums this year, none, zip. So in that vacumn certain records will still need to go to the top, which is one of the reasons we're seeing so many good but not their best efforts from recent critical darlings - LCD, Kendrick, War On Drugs, The National, Father John Misty, Laura Marling, Ryan Adams, Lana Del Rey, Jason Isbell,Oh Sees, Alt J., St. Vincent,Grizzly Bear, Kurt Vile and Courtney Barnett (this one really surprises, not a good album) - still dominating the concensus rankings. When critics have nothing to truly champion, they go with who they already like and safe bets.

    2. Melodrama, by contrast, like Protomartyr's latest, is a clear career peak up to this point in their career. Many may not like it, but it's a serious step up in quality from the debut. The production work may not be her own hand's work, but myself, not paying attention to that in early listens, feel like it's one of the best produced albums of the year.

    3. Despite JA's heavy presence, it still feels very authentic - tons of artists go the "dealing with success" album on their sophomore or third record (the old adage that you've got a lifetime to write your first record, six months to write the second), but in all honesty, there are very few to my ears that capture the rush and giddy excitement of breaking through and the fears of will you ever be able to relate to your normal friends again as well as this album does. Yes Lorde is quite literal and earnest and simplistic at time, but in this case it strikes me as completely honest to who she is, or at least who she was, during those first two years of here break out success. To me, I feel I genuinely get to know her on this album, and I find it to be one of the most endearing portraits of a young woman in the pop-universe since Lily Allen's Alright, Still. I think that's what a lot of people are responding to.

    Give or take a week or two, it's almost exactly a decade since John Doran and I sat down in his kitchen to plot what would eventually become The Quietus. It was a weird old time for music, with the landfill tipper of the NME's New Rock Revolution dominating discourse in the UK, and Pitchfork Indie still in the ascendent like some plaid-wearing Marshal Plan directive. What underground there was struggled to get heard in a media climate still dominated by the thinking that former NME editor Conor McNicholas went full Accidental Partridge in describing on Noisey recently: "Record labels knew if they wanted to get into NME they needed to look fucking great. Putting that filter in place suddenly got bands like Kasabian rocking up." Those days are thankfully past.

    I suspect that like most people who read the site you appreciate a balanced diet. Our job at this digital websheet isn't to treat you, our readers, like foie gras geese, shoving one type of music down your gullets. Instead, we're here to act as a conduit for artists who, in this grim year of 2017, have been pushing boundaries, opening hearts, expanding minds. The past 12 months have been the most exciting we've known since we came up with the idea for the site in that other world, musically and politically, that was the winter of 2007. And yes, we do say that every year but it doesn’t mean it isn’t true.

    For first time since we’ve been going it’s started to feel like the underground is increasingly managing to consolidate, organise, and start kicking hard against the mediocrity and bad vibes of our strange times. We’ve started calling this amorphous movement New Weird Britain, and you’ll have read about its sounds in Noel Gardner’s Foul House column on these pages and John’s recent Vice article. The rise of New Weird Britain is due in part to the decline of London as a powerhouse of underground culture, as rents rise and even sex clubs are being driven out by a gentrified, commodified appropriation of the leftfield. As I wrote in this Guardian article, this is helping scenes around the UK, such as the Trans-Pennine Underground, thrive.

    What is New Weird Britain, you may well ask. The joy of it, in our eyes, is that it’s a loose term, a celebratory one, and one that travels. In our chart it might represent the sometimes queer and sticky seediness of Lone Taxidermist’s trifle, Moonlandingz’ gloryhole in a northern suburban park, or Total Leatherette’s latexed fingers in your body. It might also be Richard Skelton’s Inward Circles, Snapped Ankles, Richard Dawson, Teleplasmiste, Kemper Norton and Laura Cannell redefining our landscape away from a place of whimsical retreat to something far more foreboding, yet also a place of resistance. Of course, speaking of the land - we’re not Brexit round these parts and see New Weird Britain as merely one outpost of a global explosion of vital musical art. You’ll be able to see that there’s plenty of New Weird Poland and New Weird Iran, for instance, in our chart below.

    Of course, this torrent of great music isn't going to continue flowing unless you invest in it. That's why we hook up with Norman Records to give you an easy and reasonably priced way of buying records on this list, and include Bandcamp links wherever possible, rather than Spotify or YouTube embeds. SUPPORT THE ARTISTS YOU LOVE. Remember too that this goes beyond paying for records - it's been a tragedy to see that the Fat Out and Supernormal festivals, core incubators for New Weird Britain, are having to take a rest, just as we were gutted by the cancellation of the Safe As Milk festival earlier this year. Seriously, if you want the future to be more than just smooth jamz indie bros dressed like toddlers, you need to put your hands in your pockets to make it happen.

    Which, finally, brings me to the most pleasurable part of this tenth Quietus albums of the year list - the massive THANK YOU. Although this has been a hugely positive year for our ears, The Quietus' ability to survive has been seriously undermined by the horrendous state of online advertising. With Google and Facebook floating through cyberspace hoovering all ad spend like some bastard child of Blackbeard the pirate and the Borg, it’s become impossible for sites like ours to survive on ad revenue alone. When we launched three appeals for funds via our donation page this year we were overwhelmed by the response from people out there who give enough of a shit about the service we provide to give us money to help us survive. We're working on new revenue streams - such as the new collaboration with the lovely people of Lush on the returning DAY OF RADIO and At Leisure film series, but we still need your help to survive. If you can afford to donate, our bosoms will always be warm to you - HERE is the best place to do it. If you find an album that you really love from this end of year list, please consider slinging us the cost of a pint, a glass of wine or a very fancy coffee as a way of saying thanks and helping us continue so we can do the same next year.

    We hope you enjoy the music in the list below as much as we have over the past 12 months. We all need something to keep our souls free of despair in this bonkers and brutal age, and this music, we know, can be both medicine and weapon against the grim and banal. Thank you for reading The Quietus - here's looking forward to a shitload more music from New Weird Britain and beyond in 2018, our tenth birthday year.
