Trainwreck’d Society’s Top 20 Albums of the 2017 [Exclusive!]

Avid readers here at Trainwreck’d Society may have noticed a grand shift in culture here on the site since we made our triumphant(?) return this year after a short 15 month hiatus. Whilst TWS was once primarily a music related blog, with the occasional interview with some sort of beloved actor or filmmaker, we have almost swung the pendulum so far to the other side that it may actually come as a surprise that we are paying attention to music at all.

Yes, we only had a handful of album reviews to share on the site this year. But 2017 just happened to have some of our favorite artists putting out amazing records. In fact, 6 of our Top 10 are from artists that have topped our previous charts, and have been showcased here on several other occasions, including one artist who has hit the Number 1 spot, 2 years in a row, and another who was named Trainwreck’d Society’s Person of the Year.

And there were some other amazing albums released in both the independent and major label platforms that deserve to be showcased for bringing some lovely sounds to an otherwise pretty gloomy year. Whether it is a delightful singer/songwriter tune, or the resurgence of classic hip hop artists, or the showcase of one of the finest hip hop albums of all time brought to you from the legendary Strange Famous Records (that’s correct, I said “ALL TIME”), there was just some amazing records out this year that you have to know about. I know some of these choices may be controversial in their own right, so feel free to send us some love/hate mail on the subject.

So, Ladies and Gentlemen, please enjoy our Top 20 Albums of 2017 that Totally Features Eminem, So Fuck You Internet. Enjoy!
