AMF Favorite Albums + Songs of 2017 ~ List Thread

Postby notbrianeno » Wed Jan 03, 2018 2:29 am

It is time to select our favorite music of the last year!

The formula used will be (50*(1+8))/(position+8).

Song Eligibility:

-Any song released within the calendar year either as a single or a track from an album.

-High-profile re-releases, provided the song did not make a previous countdown (e.g., "On Hold", despite being on an album this year, made 2016's EOY and is thus ineligible here)

-2016 singles from 2017 albums are fair game, provided they follow the above rule.

Album Eligibility:

-Albums released within the 2017 calendar year.

-Any major re-release of a previously unacclaimed album

-Burial Clause: EPs count as albums.

10 songs or albums are minimum to compete in the poll, and a maximum of 50 songs or albums will be counted. However, feel free to include more than that if you feel inclined to give attention to some honorable mentions. Commentary is encouraged, and will be utilized in the rollout of results.

Deadline to submit lists is by the end of January 31st

Happy Voting!

Thanks notbrianeno!!

I think it would be great if you could add a list of songs that are and aren't eligible for the 2017 poll in your initial post, like DaveC did for the 2000-2009 yearly polls: http://www.acclaimedmusic.net/forums/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=5980

I am particularly interested in the decision on these songs:

Daniel Caesar feat. Kali Uchis - Get You
Cigarettes After Sex - K
The xx - On Hold (I guess only the Jamie xx remix would be eligible)
Everyone you meet fights a battle you know nothing about. Be kind. Always.

What about Run the Jewels 3? I know it tends to be counted as a special case, because it came out in 2016 after many critic lists, but since it already appeared in last years poll, at no less than #20 I'm not convinced it should be counted here again.

Wondering about that one too, since it was released just before 2017 started. I do include it on my personal top albums of 2017 list, but is it eligible here?

Since it placed in the 2016 poll, it is not eligible. Same with “On Hold”

Elbow's Magnificent (She Says) was a 2016 single, but I think it's eligible? It's on their 2017 album and I don't think it was in last year's list.
They give awards for that music? I thought just ear plugs. (Woody Allen in Annie Hall)

Hmm...someone yell at me if my list doesn't have it, because it will certainly be in my top 10 (but I already have it on my personal 2016 list and might forgot to switch it over).

Pretty puzzled at the lack of recognition for Holy Mountain. In the age of Poptimism what's there not to like about a song that discards any pretensions whatsoever and is just pure catchiness? Lascia mi fare is just perfect car driving radio pop with an Italian tinge. And while I liked Everything Now from the beginning, it has grown on me a lot over the year and I actually think it's a better title song than The Suburbs and Reflektor and probably a top 5 Arcade Fire song for me. To be honest I think the trinity of Arcade Fire, Wanda and Noel Gallagher can compete with the top 3 of any year in terms of pure catchiness.

Why is liking "Bodak Yellow" a bad thing?

Poor Dua Lipa for barely making any lists this year when "New Rules" was the best song of the year.

I don't think it is, but some folks around here seriously yuck my yum when it comes to that song. Not as great as I initially thought, but not as bad as some might make it out to be.

I like "New Rules" a lot, although not enough to add it to my list.

Finished listening to all the albums in the top 50 on the current excel file, so I am ready to present my list. After doing my song list, I decided to give the edge to American Dream over MASSEDUCTION. I can think of few other albums that would have 6 songs in my top 50 for a single year (even though this year is admittedly rather weak on the song front...), and I do like all the remaining songs. They're both stellar albums, but I guess I'm going the predictable route and choosing my favorite band. Either way, they're still pretty much within a single spot of each other on my all-time list (2013 also has my top two albums a single spot apart in my all-time list).

Overall, I found this to be one of those odd years where the albums were a lot stronger than the songs. To compare, Big Fish Theory is my strongest #10 for a year since 2011, where it's about equivalent with House of Balloons. (2010 absolutely blows every other year this decade out of the water still; Big Fish Theory and House of Balloons are both 8.9/10 on my scale; my #10 for 2010, Cosmogramma, is a 9.2, and even #13 is a 9.0).

To compare, my #1 albums of each year for the last ten years:
Kendrick Lamar - To Pimp a Butterfly (10)
Kanye West - My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy (10)
Kendrick Lamar - good kid, m.A.A.d. city (9.9)
The xx - XX (9.9)
Vampire Weekend - Modern Vampires of the City (9.9)
David Bowie - Blackstar (9.9)
LCD Soundsystem - American Dream (9.8)
St. Vincent - St. Vincent (9.7)
James Blake - James Blake (9.7)
Fleet Foxes - Fleet Foxes (9.6)

So American Dream would be #7. These albums from the last ten years also beat out American Dream, even if they aren't #1 for their own year, meaning American Dream would be my #11 album of the decade so far:
Sufjan Stevens - Carrie & Lowell (9.9)
LCD Soundsystem - This is Happening (9.9)
Frank Ocean - Channel Orange (9.8)
The Knife - Shaking the Habitual (9.8)
Grimes - Art Angels (9.8)



Finally, the list:
1. LCD Soundsystem - American Dream
2. St. Vincent - MASSEDUCTION
3. The xx - I See You
4. Fever Ray - Plunge
5. Kendrick Lamar - DAMN.
6. Sampha - Process
7. Lorde - Melodrama
8. The War on Drugs - A Deeper Understanding
9. Perfume Genius - No Shape
10. Vince Staples - Big Fish Theory
11. Thundercat - Drunk
12. Algiers - The Underside of Power
13. Mount Eerie - A Crow Looked at Me
14. The National - Sleep Well Beast
15. Jlin - Black Origami
16. The Horrors - V
17. Arca - Arca
18. IDLES - Brutalism
19. Laurel Halo - Dust
20. Hurray for the Riff Raff - The Navigator
21. King Krule - The Ooz
22. Protomartyr - Relatives in Descent
23. Slowdive - Slowdive
24. Father John Misty - Pure Comedy
25. Jay-Z - 4:44
