Now on to the Albums... where i enjoyed most of your Top50 as well
1. Amy MacDonald – Under Stars
2. Alicia Keys – HERE
3. Imagine Dragons – EVOLVE
4. Bruno Mars – 24K Magic
5. Lana Del Rey – Lust For Life
6. Shakira – El Dorado
7. The Chainsmokers – Memories… Do Not Open
9. P!nk – Beautiful Trauma
10. Emeli Sandé – Long Live The Angels
VERY strong Top10. "Under Stars", "Evolve", "24K Magic", "Lust For Life" and "Beautiful Trauma" were also some of my faves in 2017. Really pleased how big "Under Stars" was for you. Also very pleased about P!nk's Top10 position, as i think "Beautiful Trauma" is quite underrated.
11. Katy Perry – WITNESS
12. Adele – 25
13. Calvin Harris – Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1
15. Coldplay – Kaleidoscope EP
16. Kelly Clarkson – Meaning Of Life
17. Zara Larsson – So Good
18. Taylor Swift – reputation
19. Linkin Park – One More Light
Also some big highlights in the Top20 with Linkin Park, Taylor Swift, Adele, Katy and especially Zara Larsson. The latter really showed that she's more than just a singles artists IMO, as i expected "So Good" not be... well, not so good. I really thought the Singles would have been the highlights and the album would have nothing more to offer, thank god i was wrong with that expectation. Surprised Katy actually made it to #11 despite you being disappointed by it.
22. John Legend – Darkness And Light
23. Lorde – Melodrama
24. Little Mix – Glory Days
25. Ed Sheeran – Divide
28. Train – A Girl A Bottle A Boat
29. Helene Fischer – Helene Fischer
Train was a nice suprise at the beginning of 2017 for me. A shame they never pushed "Lottery" as a proper single. The albums by Lorde and Ed are definitely my favorite ones in this group.
31. Anastacia – Evolution
34. Nelly Furtado – The Ride
35. The xx – I SEE YOU
39. Paloma Faith – The Architect
40. Aura Dione – Can’t Steal The Music
Poor Aura... she deserved so much more
"Can't Steal The Music" is/was a good album, but she should have made a better comeback after all these years. Paloma's release was solid, same for Anastacia & Nelly Furtado, but they all already made much better albums.
41. Ke$ha – Rainbow
43. Drake – More Life
46. Fergie – Double Dutchess
47. Maroon 5 – Red Pill Blues
I knew you were disappointed by Kesha's comeback but i'm glad she was still able to make your Top50, and even nearly the Top40. I think it's really good and has some fantastic tracks, especially "Praying" or "Boots".
"Double Dutchess" was such a let down
As every year, i really have to say i love your Charts/Countdown and you've got an amazing taste!
