NME’s Top 50 Albums of 2017

Lorde NME

Long-running UK mag NME have published their list of the top 50 albums of 2017. Lorde and Kendrick Lamar are both in the top 3 (and sure to be in more top 3s to come), and UK alt-rockers Wolf Alice are sandwiched right between them. NME is the first list we’ve seen so far with the polarizing Arcade Fire album, and they’ve also got Liam Gallagher in the top 10 (but not the Noel Gallagher album that comes out this week). Plus, there’s Sheer Mag, Creeper, Taylor Swift, Lana Del Rey, Paramore, St. Vincent, The National, Perfume Genius, Bleachers, alt-J, Queens of the Stone Age, Kasabian, Protomartyr, (Sandy) Alex G, Tyler the Creator, SZA and more. See their full list below.
