Top 21 Music Albums of 1997 by Onater (2019)

There's like 10 albums here that could easily be AOTY in any other year. The only reason The Lonesome Crowded West isn't here is because I've heard it described countless times as the perfect road trip album, and I've been waiting for a suitable road trip to listen to it.

My Top 10 songs of 1997:
10. Elliott Smith - Say Yes (Either/Or)
9. Built To Spill - Velvet Waltz (Perfect From Now On)
8. Built To Spill - Untrustable/Part 2 (About Someone Else) (Perfect From Now On)
7. Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds - (Are You) The One That I've Been Waiting For? (The Boatman's Call)
6. Belle & Sebastian - Lazy Line Painter Jane (Lazy Line Painter Jane)
5. Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds - Into My Arms (The Boatman's Call)
4. Built To Spill - Randy Described Eternity (Perfect From Now On)
3. Radiohead - No Surprises (OK Computer)
2. Radiohead - Let Down (OK Computer)
1. Spiritualized - Ladies and Gentlemen We Are Floating in Space (Ladies and Gentlemen We Are Floating in Space)

"The skyline was beautiful on fire, all twisted metal stretching upwards, everything washed in a thin orange haze. I said kiss me, you're beautiful, these are truly the last days. You grabbed my hand and we fell into it, like a daydream, or a fever."
