Albums of the Year: 2017

So here it finally is now! In my now third annual, I can’t believe I’ve been blogging for three years but my fave albums of this year. Anyway because I’ve been stuffing around for weeks with this list. That’s my quick intro for this Monday morning post and on with my fave albums of the year and the best one I’m naming…


In Time by Time For Dreams


My Non-numbered top ten of the year is…

After A Time by Holly Throsby

Gargoyle by Mark Lanegan

Rest In Piss by Batpiss

Forced Witness by Alex Cameron

Drum by Gold Class 

Self-titled by Jen Cloher

Don’t Wait Outside The Heart by Pale Heads 

Self-titled by Mark Kozelek With Ben Boye And Jim White

Bravado by Kirin J Callinan

Just a top ten albums for me like the last couple of years, if for some mad reason you want to see what I had for 2016 and 2015 just click on those years. All the albums above are linked in their titles if you need more about them just click away! Eight and a half of the ten are Aussie artists, the highest of the three years on my blog, so far. BTW some kind-of songs list is coming soon too but three extra category’s are…

Reissue album: Hamburg Recordings 1967 by The Monks

Soundtrack albums: (tied) Bad Girl by Warren Ellis and Twin Peaks: The Bang Bang Bar Songs by Various Artists 

Live album: Deliquescence by Swans

Tom Carlyon & Amanda Roff from Time For Dreams win my album of the year for 2017!

So what does everyone, anyone think about my picks for 2017?

Cheers 🙂



  1. Sad to admit, I am not familiar with any of these albums nor artists, despite the fact I’ve listened to what seems like thousands of songs by hundreds of artists & bands over the past year. I’ve bookmarked this post and will check some of them out.

      1. Slowly working my way down the list and have listened to songs from the first four albums. I like them all. “In Time” is beautiful; their moniker is certainly apt, as their songs are dreamy and atmospheric. Holly Throsby’s album is lovely, and Mark Lanegan’s is dark & edgy, based on the 30-second samples. But my favorite of the top 4 is Batpiss’ “Rest in Piss,” as I’m always drawn to alt-rock, punk, psychedelic and garage rock.
