Karlabos' 2017 Top 100


If you were ever following my 2017 list in the beginning of the year and are wondering what happened to that one: well, basically MS deleted it itself. More like half of it. When I was in the mark of 120 albums or so and were updating the stuff, that bug which sometimes happens where some of the albums get cut from the preview happened... And I didn't see it. And I clicked on the submit button... So in the end only the first 50 albums of my original list were now showing and THE REST GOT ALL FUCKING DELETED, so yeah... I got pissed. And deleted the whole thing.
Later I remembered most of the albums on that list (some were never to be seen again because there were so many and my memory lacks for this kind of stuff... )
Note to self: Always have a copy of your list on your computer.

Anyway, let us forget the past. This time I present you what I think is a compilation of the 100 best albums I've listened to on this year. First the tier 3, the 60 ones among the 100 which are below the first 40, then the tier 2: the top second 30 ones, and finally, the tier 1: the best 10. And if that isn't enough, there are some stuff which are good but didn't make the cut because there was only space for 100.

93. ############# TIER 1: THE TOP 10 ############## (in alphabetical order)
94. Anwar Sadat - Ersatz Living
(post punk) This is one of the reasons I think post-punk is probably one of the most promising genres at this point of time. This record experiments blending some sort of power electronics
95. Chaos Moon - Eschaton Mémoire
(black metal) I think this oughta be the best Chaos Moon album yet. Maybe I'm biased because it was only recently released but that's the impression I have now. Nothing extremely original here but it's all about the songwriting
96. CroissantChicago - Jirai Denshi
(world/post pop) After CroissantChicago released the masterpiece "Swimmylib" last year I kept expecting a lot, until they released Mono early this year. While it was a very good record (tier 3) it quite didn't match the expectations, so I felt kinda lacking until the end of the year. Then this came... And I am still on a binge here, gotta say this is more like what I was expecting as a follow-up. I still can't decide the aoty yet, but CC is definitely a contender for doing it again
97. Denkare - Carnaval The Abyss
(trancecore/power metal/gothic rock) Definitely the best album with jpopesque vocal style released this year. Yui just can't do wrong.
98. Dreadnought - A Wake In Sacred Waves
(extreme prog) This was maybe my most anticipated album this year aside CroissantChicago's. And they delivered. Hell yeah they did
99. E Ticket Production - E Ticket Rap Show
(denpa) Oh you guys wouldn't understand...
100. Nokturnal Mortum - Verity
(folk symphoblack) It is the long awaited followup to the masterpiece released in circa 2011. It's basically another Nokturnal Mortum album. If you've listened to them you don't need words to get to this one
101. Parov Stelar - The Burning Spider
(pop/electroswing) Probably the most spinned one of this year. There's something about the songwriting that makes the songs ridiculously good. Serves to show not all pop music is shit even nowadays
102. Suiyoubi No Campanella - Superman
(world/jpop/hip hop) Well it's the new Suiyoubi no Campanella album. It was bound to be one of the top 10s
103. Szarfaszu Vizelet - Tapirlandia
(grindcore) While totally a not serious record it was still one of my most spinned ones. The first thing I reminded when I listened to those weird vocals was !T.O.O.H.!, that together with all that sample nonsense makes it one of the most enjoyables of '17
