10. St. Vincent - MASSEDUCTION

October 13, 2017
Critic Score
86
37 reviews
It’s not out of bounds to call it the most personal St. Vincent album. Clark herself said, “if you want to know about my life, listen to this record.” But in recent memory, few musicians have also managed to so incisively capture what it’s like to live in this present.

8. Jlin - Black Origami

May 19, 2017
Critic Score
84
13 reviews

6. Björk - Utopia

November 24, 2017
Critic Score
79
35 reviews

She has always channelled bliss and joy into compelling music, but Utopia’s take on love is more than pure feeling; it’s the basis for a personal and political manifesto.

4. Kelela - Take Me Apart

October 6, 2017
Critic Score
80
24 reviews

3. SZA - Ctrl

June 9, 2017
Critic Score
84
19 reviews

2. Mount Eerie - A Crow Looked at Me

March 24, 2017
Critic Score
90
17 reviews

A Crow Looked At Me is an unsettling, awkward listen and it might (probably will) make you cry. It’s also a tribute to an amazing 13-year love story and may turn out to be one of the strongest albums of the year.

1. Kendrick Lamar - DAMN.

April 14, 2017
Critic Score
92
36 reviews

Countless rappers claim to have transcended the game. Kendrick Lamar actually does. There’s the sense his ambitions on DAMN. are even larger, reaching toward something more universal, fateful even spiritual in its reach to find the link tying all contradictions together.
