These Are The Albums We Listened To The Most In 2017

It's that time of year again when we all take stock of the year gone by with a bunch of lists celebrating the best things to happen over the past twelve months. And while not everything has gone to plan in 2017, it has been a year rich in musical releases from every type of genre. 

Between LCD Soundsystem's first album in seven years, Kendrick Lamar's Damn, Tyler, The Creator's chart-topping Flower Boy and Mura Masa's self-titled debut hit, it's been tough to narrow down the selection – but we've just about managed. Totaling around 40 discs in total, here are the albums that caught our attention this year.
