Rolling Stone’s Top 50 Albums of 2017

Rolling Stone

Thanksgiving is behind us, which in the music world, means more and more holiday songs and more and more Best of the Year lists. Rolling Stone published theirs today. Their #1 and #2 are probably going to continue to pop up in very high slots (we’ll let you guess who they are), and their #3 is the most Rolling Stone move of all time: the U2 album that isn’t even out yet. They’ve also got both Liam Gallagher and Noel Gallagher listed together at #37, and they’ve got albums that only Rolling Stone would include on a list like this, like the Lindsay Buckingham & Christine McVie album and Bob Dylan‘s latest covers album. They’ve also got big pop like Taylor Swift and Harry Styles, and they managed to get metalcore band Code Orange in there at #50. Read their commentary on each album HERE and see the full list below.
