AllMusic’s Albums of the Year

by Brian H.

You may be tempted to go for the list of the top albums of the year from Rolling Stone magazine, or Pitchfork, or NPR, or Billboard while searching for music of note from 2017.

However, may I suggest you give a look and listen to this list of the 70 best albums from 2017 that the editors of AllMusic have picked?  AllMusic is a comprehensive and in-depth resource for finding out more about the albums, bands, musicians and songs you love.

In addition to the list of 70 top album picks there are genre-specific lists that were posted every weekday until the new year.

Look at what I found while exploring these AllMusic lists.

Here are links to all the genre lists from AllMusic.  Let us know what you discover in the comments below.
