tominator's 2017... Best To Worst


Thumbs up: +1
A list of the albums I listened to that came out in 2017.

Two rules were followed for the selection and ranking of these albums:
1. I listened to these albums at least 2 times in order to give them a fair chance.
2. When it's a tie between certain albums, I usually pick the one I listened to the most during the year.
