My favourite albums of 2017

For me personally, 2016 was such a meh year for music, I enjoyed these albums, but nothing really blew my mind. 2017 is another story though, I felt like I was constantly drowning in amazing new music and that’s always a pretty great position to be in. I thought I would give some love to the albums I have had on repeat over the past 12 months — from 3 of my favourite bands of all time — LCD Soundsystem, The War On Drugs & Arcade Fire — producing absolute masterpieces (which got me through some tough times this year if I’m honest), to some newbies, 2017 has definitely brought the goods!
