Re: AMF Favorite Albums + Songs of 2017 ~ List Thread

So here we are, my first EOY list for music. This is the first time I put a specific focus on the year we're actually in, even if only in the last 2 - 3 months did I really start catching up. I might have forced it a bit, not giving some albums the attention or repeated listen they deserved (which is why for example Vince Staples didn't make it, even though I noticed he was doing something interesting). Probably focus more on quality than quantity listening again next year.

Still, there were a lot of albums that I did give enough attention and also liked a lot. I come to a list of 35, which is the rounded number that captures my favorites best. If a more conventional number like 25 works better for results, you can take that too, of course.

Image

Album top 35:
1. Mount Eerie – A Crow Looked at Me
2. Jesca Hoop – Memories Are Now
3. Lorde - Melodrama
4. Blanck Mass – World Eater
5. Laura Marling – Semper Femina
6. Robin Borneman – Folklore II: The Phantom Wail
7. Hurray for the Riff Raff – The Navigator
8. Kevin Morby – City Music
9. Phoebe Bridgers – Stranger in the Alps
10. Gang of Youths – Go Farther in Lightness
11. Kelly Lee Owens – Kelly Lee Owens
12. Spoon – Hot Thoughts
13. Mogwai – Every Country’s Sun
14. Somi – Petit Afrique
15. Slowdive - Slowdive
16. Colin Stetson – All This I Do for Glory
17. Aldous Harding – Party
18. LCD Soundsystem – American Dream
19. The Clientele – Music for the Age of Miracles
20. Lana del Rey – Lust for Life
21. Angel Olsen – Phases
22. The Magnetic Fields – 50 Song Memoir
23. Oh Sees – Orc
24. The Regrettes – Feel Your Feelings Fool
25. Oneohtrix Point Never – Good Time OST
26. The National – Sleep Well Beast
27. The Moonlandingz – Interplanetary Class Classics
28. Sampha – Process
29. Julien Baker – Turn Out the Lights
30. Kendrick Lamar – DAMN.
31. King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard – Murder of the Universe
32. Neil Young – Hitchhiker
33. Luwten - Luwten
34. William Basinski – A Shadow in Time
35. Stormzy – Gang Signs & Prayers

As usual I want to do comments for everything, but I don't have the time. Still, I want to agree with Sonofsamiam that it was a deep year. Lots of variety. I do not agree with the general consensus that there isn't one obvious masterpiece, as I feel that A Crow Looked at Me is. It has two things going against it for it's status as All-Time Great perhaps: it is in a unfashionable style and it is not something many people would listen to frequently. That last point is actually a sign for me that the album works. It really is a singular album, incomparable with anything I ever heard.

As for the rest, it seems that genre exercises worked the best. That might be the reason why many people feel that it was a weaker year: there was little cross-over appeal. Personally I could hardly love an album more than Memories Are Now by Jesca Hoop, but perhaps only people with a specific love for folk feel the same way. A lot of the list above have very specific appeal. I don't think that is a bad thing at all, but we are on a site based on consensus ratings and that's were a lot of albums could fail. Still, as long as there are things we can enjoy on a personal level music is hardly going to get stale. And perhaps this was a good year simply for me, as female singer/songwriters have been somewhat the biggest part of my musical diet for the last few years and this was their banner year.



Onto the songs. I had a "short"-list of 142 songs. I could easily made a top 100, but decided to stop at 75 for no particular reason.

Image

Top 75 songs:
1. Phoebe Bridgers – Funeral
2. Mount Eerie – Real Death
3. Blanck Mass – Rhesus Negative
4. Jesca Hoop – The Lost Sky
5. Spoon – Hot Thoughts
6. Wolf Alice – Beautifully Unconventional
7. Mogwai – Crossing the Road Material
8. Kevin Morby – City Music
9. Julie Byrne – Natural Blue
10. Sufjan Stevens – Tonya Harding (In D major)
11. Everything, Everything – Night of the Long Knives
12. The Afghan Whigs – The Spell
13. Father John Misty – Total Entertainment Forever
14. Hurray for the Riff Raff – The Navigator
15. Lorde – Homemade Dynamite
16. Robin Borneman – O Faithful World
17. Phoebe Bridgers – You Missed My Heart
18. Sampha – Blood On Me
19. William Basinski – For David Robert Jones
20. Blanck Mass – The Rat

72. Thundercat, featuring Michael McDonald – Show You the Way
73. LCD Soundsystem – how do you sleep?
74. Julie Byrne – Follow My Voice
75. Diet Cig - Sixteen


I think there is a lot here that you won't find on the official EOY songs list (and perhaps not on our final poll results). So be it. To me this was a particularly strong song year, but I found them elsewhere than the critics. I don't want to get to autobiographical, but in 2017 I could feel very down for a lot of reasons, some very personal, others more based on the world outside. About the latter - and without getting into detail - I just felt the world was devolving into a state of bullying, pettiness and infighting. More than before, I needed music as a connective tissue. I've never been a fan of music based on dissing and self-aggrandizement and this year I needed it less than ever (which is why I despise Bodak Yellow so much, even more so than because of the musical components which don't work for me either). Luckily, there were a lot of heartfelt songs. But it is not all sorrow and pity, there is joy too and some great playing.

Some notes:
- No, nobody close to me died last year, even if my top two songs might make you think so. Funeral is rare song that reduced me to actual tears and I'll never forget the shock of first hearing Real Death. That's why they top the list.
- If Don't the Delete the Kisses by Wolf Alice will end up higher on our list than Beautifully Unconventional I will rebel. You have been warned.

I wasn’t paying a lot of attention to new music during 2017. Then I listened to the critics’ top songs and didn’t feel I was missing out that much... But now I’m checking out your favorites and OMG so many hidden gems!!! You guys are the best. :greetings-waveyellow:

Throughout much of the year I thought 2017 would turn out to be one of the weaker years of the decade. For top-end albums and songs, maybe that's true, but this is one of the deeper years in recent history. Also, it is (for me) the best year ever for women in music. Significant female contribution to my top 5 albums and 16 of the top 30, as well as 12 of the top 20 songs.
