The year of 2017 was an awesome year for the music scene: new fantastic rookies were born, some huge returns were made and the list of good music was quite… something. Let’s forget the Despacito’s and talk about the Salvador Sobral’s.
(Yes. This is a reference to Eurovison. Come on, we’re from Portugal. We gotta do this!)
We’re not Pitchfork, NME or Rolling Stones, so we’re not here to tell you what are THE albums of 2017. In fact, we just want to show you the music that represent our dance moves, headbangs, showers, night out or night in friends, karaoke parties and our smiles.
Before we show you our 30 favourite albums of 2017 in CHRONOLOGICALLY ORDER (Yes. Chronologically order! We are different and very tidy), we have to keep showing some love to our honour mentions.
After these honorable mentions, here we are, super ready to talk about Salvador and the Eurovi…
Can’t we only talk about that?
(Now for real)
It’s time to reveal our 30 favourite albums of 2017!
If you click in the cover of the album, you will get to a page (Spotify or Bandcamp) where you can listen to the album.
SPOILER ALERT: Get ready because October seems to be our favorite month of 2017
