THE BEST ALBUMS OF 2017

5. A DEEPER UNDERSTANDING by THE WAR ON DRUGS

Music. Full, rich, smooth, tightly orchestrated, and exceeding all expectations.

4. HOT THOUGHTS by SPOON

*BEST INDIE ROCK ALBUM OF THE YEAR*

The band continues its streak of being incapable of making a bad record.

IF YOU LIKE THIS, TRY: I SEE YOU by THE XX
No, it’s not like Spoon’s funky and peerless album, but it’s a damn good, damn accessible bit of smart pop that fans of Spoon might take a shine to.

3. DRAGONFLY by KASEY CHAMBERS

So good, I saw her twice in one year. This album will blow you away.

IF YOU LIKED THIS, TRY ANOTHER GENRE-BENDING PUNKISH WOMAN:  PSYCHOTIC MELANCHOLIA by HAYLEY THOMPSON-KING

2.  DAMN by KENDRICK LAMAR (West Coast hip hop)

*BEST RAP ALBUM OF THE YEAR*

The best album yet by the most groundbreaking rapper today.
