Hummingbard's Ratings: 2017


Within this list I shall be keeping track of everything I listen to in 2017. I will be listing albums in listening order with the newest discoveries at the bottom, then accompanied by a score (that may change as the year moves along). This is purely for personal gain as I am merely keeping track of the absurd amount of music that comes out. It is therefore likely that this will become something very long, and the majority of records will not be able to be linked to this website. Most likely updated daily.

Will probably keep tabs on this one as you seem to be going outside the site for stuff, which is always good.

Thank you! I think it will be a great mish-mash of genres, though. I am also very fond of glam rock (is it still deadly to enjoy both extremes?) and I surmise that quite a few new releases will turn up this year, so if you are not into that, it is something that you'll have to look past, haha. I'll keep an eye out for your list as well, if you manage to keep it updated.

Trust me, I can listen to anything from Bon Jovi to Portal, everything in between. People often say that being a woman gives me a pass for that, lol.

Can't say I listen to much glam rock (actually I didn't realise it was still being made) but I'm always a bit suspicious of people who only listen to the obscure / extreme stuff and nothing else. I think everyone needs a guilty pleasure, something cheesy or melodic, so I can appreciate having diversity in this list

Thank you. I hope more blank spots will be filled in as the year goes by. I'm not too confident in adding bands to this website myself.

Excellent list.

You get my thumbs up for including Terhenetär, Valkeat and Warseid in your list. I discovered Terhenetär from "Arcane Existence"(another folk group from Finland) via bandcamp. Valkeat on facebook and Warseid from Last.fm recommendations.

I haven't heard their new stuff yet.

I need to re-visit those three � they all left quite a large impression and I can actually feel that all three releases have a chance of receiving top scores on my behalf. Really, really enjoyable.

It's only February, this list will be active throughout the entire year. I am not just going to stop rating once I reach a certain number of albums I listened to, that will beat the purpose of keeping a list. And as I said, it's purely for personal gain.
