2017 - My Best To Worst


Welcome to my 2017 list. If you have any recommendations for albums, feel free to leave a message in the comments section. And of course, if you see anything on the list you like or you found something from the list you want to check out, give the list a thumbs up!

Each album on this list has been:

- Listened to 3 (or more) times.
- Rated as a whole album and not song-by-song.

Rating guide:
✮✮✮✮✮ - Incredible, possibly AOTY
✮✮✮✮½ - Excellent
✮✮✮✮ - Praiseworthy
✮✮✮½ - Good
✮✮✮ - Meets Expectations
✮✮½ - Nothing Special
✮✮ - Disappointing
✮½ - Bad
✮ - Terrible

There really aren't very many albums I give ✮✮✮✮✮ to, so if you see an album that has 5 stars, you can bet each song on the album has been played 20+ times on my ipod. More albums will appear as the year goes on and some albums get bumped up/down, depending on their impact.

Please feel free to see my lists from previous years:
