Top 100 Music Albums of 2017 by Purplepash (2022)

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.
As of last update thirteen individual countries represented including, as always this decade, a healthy representation of Australian music. Just over 25% of my chart. There is a great live music scene here resulting in some quality albums.

By "best" I mean "subjectively my favourite from what I have listened to" but best is quicker and easier to type. Feel free to challenge any of these via comments below or PM and I will accept the challenge and let you know.
