Yesterday, Pitchfork published their list of the 100 best songs of 2017, and today they published their 50 best albums of 2017. As usual, you can make some guesses about what their list will be based on which albums get Best New Music or an 8.0+ score throughout the year, but more goes into it than that. A few albums that got BNM didn't make the cut, and some albums are here that got below an 8, like Drake's More Life, Lana Del Rey's Lust for Life, and St. Vincent's MASSEDUCTION. The ranking of the list doesn't necessarily match up with scores either. For example, Fleet Foxes' Crack-Up got an 8.7 and comes in at #39, while LCD Soundsystem's American Dream got an 8.5 and comes in at #12.

The top 5 is mostly what you'd expect -- but maybe a surprise or two -- with Lorde, Kelela, Kendrick Lamar, King Krule and SZA. As for what order they come in, we'll let you see for yourself. The full list is below and you can read P4k's commentary on each pick HERE.
