Well, my personal second favorite of the year is down at #21. It just feels like the average score among the top has made a massive leap with the last few major releases.

Re: MCCh 2017 (16) September 15

It took a while, but 2017 now has a really solid top 10...and we still have St. Vincent, Bjork, Beck, and a Courtney Barnett/Kurt Vile collaboration album coming up, as far as the usual suspects go. This feels like the first year in a while where the back half is much stronger than the first.

I'm up to The Earth is Not a Cold Dead Place, which is a pretty strong album. I wish more people here were into Mogwai; Young Team is such a flawless record.
