2017 Annex Album of the Year RESULTS Megathread

Recommended Posts

This top ten was fucking weird order wise, yet there are plenty of great albums in there.

 

Fleet Foxes and The National appearing :lol: how am I meant to mock Atease when you lot do that? 

You listed Richard Dawson and big thief m8

 

I love hip hop and pop more than the next guy but I guess I don't see the need to root out folk or "big tent indie" completely, I think the lists are a lot more properly balanced than they were in the past or on atease still and that is p. solid.

slowdive's album is pretty great but i agree it's an odd no 1 for 2017. if i had to guess i'd say it would top atease's list not the annex's (at least it's better than lcd, the no 1 over there)

 

i hope ee. has a good excuse for not sending a list, because in the end it's his fault that kelela didn't make it to no 1 :)

ocean your a good boarder but this is a bad bad take

idek man i was just never a big slowdive stan i guess like i enjoy them when they're on but outside of a few songs they never grabbed me as much as mbv on a whole so it's really no wonder and i don't think i really deserve your ire bc it was actually on my list 

 

i'm happier with it up top than something like lcd soundsystem, but woulda liked if kelela made it. however it wasn't even close and i accept that this is a slowdivey board

Cheers for doing the rollout, the results were underwhelming but it's fitting as it was an extremely underwhelming year for music

 

will def be one of my favorite years this decade

You don't back up your lists onto stone pillars?

 

the pillars are for writing my favorite simpsons quotes and they are extremely heavy. as i don't yet own a home, moving them from one apartment to the next has already caused lifelong back injuries. i can't buy more without great personal cost.

I'm pretty happy with this list. Death Grips, Yaeji, Mhysa, Lil B, RTJ, milo, EMA and Angelo Badalamenti all made it so I feel like 2017 couldn't have been that bad.

i'm so sorry and embarrassed, especially to learn that my list would have had a major impact on the overall result :( I had planned to devote some time to making a list in the period between Christmas and New Year but then ended up travelling to Sydney shortly after Christmas for about a week and didn't have my laptop with me - I then remembered just as I was going to sleep a couple of days ago but the rollout had already started

 

Anyway of course it's far too late and totally futile but for what it's worth my list would've looked something like this

I was writing one the other day and I accidentally went out of the page and when I went back it was GONE and I'd already wasted 15 minutes on it and couldn't be bothered to do it again :oops:

 

Kitty was somewhere in the top 5, maybe top 3. Everyone just pretend that album placed about 30 places higher, thanks.

 

omg if heart space posts a list, even like a top 10, could someone recalculate the final list :lolsad:
