The best albums of 2017 (update October 15)

The numbers presented next to each album title are the weighted average rating, and, in brackets, average and number of ratings (out of 31 included sources). The weighted average is based on a formula that includes a) the average of ratings and b) the number of sources that have rated the album.

The magazines I used for the ratings were:
EUR + Australia: Gaffa-dk; Gaffa-sw; Humo; Indiestyle; Jenesaispop; Laut; Mondosonoro; Musikexpress; Nojesguiden; Ondarock; Plattentests; Sentire Ascoltare; The Music
UK: DIY; Drowned In Sound; The Guardian; Music OMH; NME; The Line Of Best Fit; The Skinny; The 405
USA + Canada: Allmusic; AV Club; Consequence Of Sound; Exclaim!; Paste; Pitchfork; Popmatters; Rolling Stone; Tinymixtapes; Under The Radar

Highlights: These are the top three songs from the album according to Allmusic, Consequence of Sound, Jenesaispop, Plattentests, The Skinny, Beardfood, BostonGlobe, Nowtoronto, Entertainment Weekly, etc…

Since the highlights aren't yet up today it might take me some days to update the playlist as I certainly won't be able to tomorrow. Hopefully by Tuesday evening I will post the new Spotify list.

There you go:



The Jay-Z tracks:

Kill Jay-Z: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P_Tq6_fPBfo

Smile: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BQfAZjw3kdY

4:44: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rUaGgwgA7Xs


The Ty Segall tracks:

Warm Hands (Freedom Returned): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gqD_4ZvxI48

Orange Color Queen: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xbEQgKFor9Y

Take Care (to Comb Your Hair): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bycWOz6RwIg


The PWR BTTM tracks (also in the Spotify list in some regions):

Silly: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZkNOA20GoAc

Answer My Text: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kmMOiwLocPQ

LOL: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=31vSvSIy27s



The list has almost reached its limit of 100. Who will survive? To show how serious things are getting here the wolves have been send out, so this one update sees the addition of a Wolf Parade (that's basically a large pack of them) and Wolves in the Throne Room (seems not even monarchs are safe this time), as well as the biggest rise yet: by no less than Wolf Alice.

Hey just a question,

How many ratings from different sources does an album need to qualify for your list?

Also have you thought of adding in Rolling Stone Australia to your list of publications - it features great reviews of Australian and NZ albums which doesn't feature in the US version.

Also what about Neil Finn - Out Of Silence. It has a Metacritic rating of 85 at the moment :)

Don't forget Chelsea Wolfe. Where is Kanye "I'mma fix Wolves" West when we need him? We surrounded by 'em!
