Best albums of 2017

Post by buckeye7983 » Tue Nov 14, 2017 5:05 pm

Well, it's that time of year again. Didn't see this thread for 2017, so...

My favorites this year:

Royal Blood: How Did We Get So Dark. No sophomore slump. Huge sound from two guys. No lead or rhythm guitar, just bass guitar and drums.

Greta Van Fleet: From The Fires. Double EP. Rock lives! 21 year old twins (vocals and lead guitar), their 18 year old brother (bass), and 18 year old friend (drums). The latter two had to skip their high school prom because they were on tour.

What was/were your favorite(s)?

There are albums still? Or as my kid says big black CD's
