A (Belated) Boney 2017

So I kind of dropped the ball on posting my 2017 list. Back in December I told myself I’d do in-depth write-ups of every album like I did for my 2016 list, but it just didn’t happen. About a month ago now I had my list filled out with some brief descriptions written on the spot, and I hit submit...and the site ate it. All my hard work gone. After that I never got around to re-posting it, so here it is. The ranking is kind of approximate, a lot of these albums I honestly didn’t revisit a lot of times if at all throughout the year so I just went with my gut feeling of how good they were and of course the ratings I had left for them. Take it as you will but these were the top 50 albums out of the 120 or so I checked out.
