My Year In Lists: 2017

I did think about doing more than just albums, but, to be quite frank, I'm not sure it would be that interesting. I've watched 1 film that was released this year, Manchester By The Sea; I thought that was excellent. I've played 1 game; Super Mario Odyssey. That too, is excellent. I've enjoyed every gig I've attended also. Glastonbury was a blast. I've found some pretty good coffee shops, all of which serve great coffee. Can I tell the difference? No. So, here are my 10 favourite albums of 2017. In no real order.
