Best album, without a doubt: The War on Drugs - A Deeper Understanding. This music is just pure magic. Some of its songs cary you away in a sort of dream (Thinking of a Place is the best example of this), while others are incredibly touching (Holding On).

My number two would be Wonderful Wonderful by The Killers. They're one of my favorite bands, and every single song on this album is just great. It also offers a lot of varition: from alternative rock to pop to disco.

Other good albums are:

  • Royal Blood - How did we get so Dark?
  • The National - Sleep Well Beast
  • Foo Fighters - Concrete and Gold
  • Stone Sour - Hydrograd
  • Harry Styles - Harry Styles
  • In This Moment - Ritual
  • Paramore - After Laughter

My favorite songs are in this playlist:
It's pretty incomplete though, lots of great songs aren't in it.

Bad Suns - This Was A Home Life Dance Gavin Dance - That's WHat I Like (Bruno Mars Cover)
Dashboard Confessional - We Fight  Dreamcar - Kill For Candy
Dua Lipa - New Rules Goldfinger - Put The Knife Away
The Gorillaz featuring Vince Staples - Ascension The Homeless Gospel Choir - Normal
Imagine Dragons - Believer Japandroids - North East South West
Kendrick Lamar - Humble Kygo featuring Selena Gomez - It Ain't Me 
Lana Del Ray - Love Lil Uzi Vert - XO Tour Lif3
Lorde - Green Light Paramore - Hard Times
Pink - What About Us? Portugal.The Man - Feel It Still
Waterparks - Blonde

Admittedly, DGD's song is a cover but it's a damn good cover. In general, I mostly listen to what Spotify, Alternative Press and the radio recommend for me. Tp be honest, I am not a big fan of Selena Gomez but I think the song is really good and different than what she normally has out (thanks to Kygo of course). I would have had at least 1 or 2 Brand New songs listed on here but the lead singers sexual assault allegations bother me. 

Such a weak year for music, according to me ofc.

I cant think of a single album that I've enjoyed from start to finish... my favorite tracks from this year didnt even come from albums, just stand alone tracks (doomsday by architects and Doomed by APC)

Fitting title names.

Around the Network

I really love "Feed the Machine" by Nickelback. Damm good song.

Ask stefl1504 for a sig, even if you don't need one.

Best albums of this year in no particular order:

Lorde - Melodrama

Slowdive - Slowdive

LCD Soundsystem - American Dream

Björk - Utopia

The XX - I See You

Mount Eerie - A Crow Looked at Me

Brand New - Science Fiction

Aside from game music, I don't think I've heard anything from 2017 that I liked. I mainly like Rock, but a few years back the only radio station in my area that played new Rock music got bought out by some huge conglomerate and the format changed to some oldies mix station, so I haven't heard any new rock music that released in the last 2 or 3 years. Almost all of the top 40/pop music I've heard this year was garbage, if I hear "Sorry, Not Sorry" one more time I think I might gouge my ear drums out

So I guess I'll list some of my favorite game music from this year:

Nier Automata- Weight of the World

Nier Automata- Song of the Ancients

Sonic Mania- Blossom Haze

Sonic Mania- Lights, Camera, Action!

Sonic Mania- Rogue's Gallery

Sonic Forces- Aqua Road

Sonic Forces- Red Gate Bridge

Sonic Forces- Park Avenue

Call of Duty WW2- A Brotherhood of Heroes
