My Top 40 albums of 2017

I listened to at least 150 albums full through this year, and these are the ones that stuck with me the most. As always, the usual caveats: 1) I only base the list on albums I own, so things I really dug but didn't purchase, like B Boys, didn't make it, 2) of course, there are many terrific albums I've never gotten around to, like Alvvays' latest, for example, and, 3) the rankings mean a bit less the further down the list this goes, the distinctions between 21 and 25, for example, are very small. I also had to figure out what to do with Run The Jewels, whose third album was offered for free in mid-December, but not physically out until 2017. I decided to exclude it. There are also a number of records that could have made the 40 during a different week. It's just a matter of when the wheel stops spinning.
