Top 100 Music Albums of 2017 by Purplepash (2019)

« View previous chartView next chart »

The year of King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard. Actually a great year for psych sub genres overall. Also lots of indie rock and punk subgenres.
At least nine individual countries represented including, as always this decade, a healthy representation of Australian music. Just under 25% of my chart. There is a great live music scene here resulting in some quality albums.

Having fun with genres. Something I don't take seriously but can be useful at times. Genres are mainly from RYM, but at times I have had to be a bit loose or make up my own for variety and to avoid repetition.
By "best" I mean "subjectively my favourite from what I have listened to" but best is quicker and easier to type.
