This is a quickie countdown since it's so late to be posting here. But I counted them down elsewhere back in December.

One biggie to remember is that my chart reflected the Grammy year of Oct 2016-Sept 2017 so there's the inclusion of several late 2016 releases while quite a few late 2017 albums such as St. Vincent, Beck, Bjork, U2, John Maus, Baths and others are being held over for 2018 as they came out after Sept. 30

30. Tuxedo - Tuxedo II
29. Grizzly Bear - Painted Ruins
28. Aimee Mann - Mental Illness
27. Blondie - Pollinator
26. Metallica - Hardwired To Self-Destruct
25. Mac DeMarco - This Old Dog
24. Foo Fighters - Concrete And Gold
23. The National - Sleep Well, Beast
22. Lorde - Melodrama
21. Lindsey Buckingham & Christine McVie - Buckingham McVie
20. Harry Styles - Harry Styles

''I'll be stoned for Christmas'' is how I discovered him (voted as my fave festive song in UKMix countdown as well)

Jens Lekman - So cute and lovely melodies, really like him.
Jamiroquai - Not sure about the album as a whole just yet but my god those tunes are funky! The title track (which is amazing imo, so fresh to my ears and so infectious) the other 2 clear standouts for me are Vitamin and Dr Buzz, so delicious)

So many I need to pull my finger out and listen to still. :oops: :lol:
