Q Magazine’s Top 50 Albums of 2017

Q Magazine

Is that the most Q Magazine cover ever or what? That’s Ed Sheeran being talked to by Liam Gallagher at this year’s Q Awards. (“Haha, yes, Liam sometimes I find my brother difficult too, but in the end we do love each other.”) Ed, sadly, did not make the long-running UK mag’s year-end list of Best Albums of 2017 but Liam Gallagher’s solo debut, As You Were, came in at #15. Unlike MOJO and Uncut, LCD Soundsystem’s American Dream did not nab the top spot — that goes to Kendrick Lamar‘s DAMN. Also in their Top 10: records by The National, Father John Misty, St. Vincent, Lorde, Gorillaz, Baxter Dury, Wolf Alice, QOTSA and Wolf Alice. Check out Q‘s full Top 50 list below:
