Top Releases Of 2017, Now With A Smoked Salmon Bagel!


This year, I will be posting far more thoroughly than I have in the last two years or so. The list below is ranked in order from best to worst, but I'll likely end up cutting some albums in the end. I will also be temporarily evaluating albums I have not yet heard based on one or two songs, denoting these albums with *. Using the list, I can then come back to them later in the year. Feel free to give me any 2017 recommendations you might have. Cheers!
