2017 has been a mess of a year overall. But musically, it’s been amazing.

The following are my top 30 albums of this year. It was REALLY hard to narrow this list down to 30 and I found it impossible to put it in order. I didn’t write anything about why I think they are the best of the year, I’m letting the music speak for itself. Check out videos below.
