Good to see The Bats getting some attention.They`re one of the most underated bands around for a band that`s been around since 1982

I liked the second album by The Courtneys too

The Dream Syndicate comeback album was good too.Their Live At Raji`s album from 1989 is one of the best live albums ever

First, I love it when y'all put up your top last year lists. I've gotten into more great music from this board over any other lists anywhere since I've joined. Anyhoos, here's my list:

Grizzly Bear - Painted Ruins
In This Moment - The Ritual
LCD Soundsystem - american dream
Queens Of The Stone Age - Villains
Kendrick Lamar - Damn.
Son Volt - Notes of Blue
Ghost In The Shell (Music inspired by the Motion picture)
Kevin Morby - City Music
Mark Lanegan Band - Gargoyle
Cory Branan - Adios
UNKLE - The Road Pt 1
Beck - Colors

And my favorite was from a local Fort Worth Texas musician. Some of the members of White Denim helped with the recording:

Andy Pickett - Andy Pickett

I too really enjoy this thread, and learning of new things to checkout. From my side, my favorites (in no order):

- Robert Plant, “Carry Fire”
- Steven Wilson, “To the Bone” (probably my favorite of the year)
- Martin Simpson, “Trials & Tribulations”
- Neil Young, “Hitchhiker” (Not sure if this really counts)
- Waxahatchee, “Out in the Storm”
- Son Volt (of course)
- Roger Waters, “Is this the Life We Really Want”
- JohnMoreland, “Big Bad Luv”
- Chuck Prophet, “Bobby Fuller Dies for your Sins”
- Pineapple Thief, “Where We Stood”

Take care,
Chris

you'd a thunk this being a son volt forum that folks would have better taste in music. not a lot listed here as "best of 2017" that is really any good.... the folks that have listed so far - i'm surprise at how shitty your tastes in music are.
