musicOMH’s Top 50 Albums Of 2017



Lorde - Melodrama

Lorde‘s Melodrama was the comfortable winner of our writers’ poll

Behold, musicOMH’s Top 50 Albums Of 2017. Arrived at by means of spreadsheets, numbers, musings and elimination, our contributors entered their selections into a virtual tombola, which was then shaken about a bit, and these are the works that came out on top. Where we have reviews, these have been linked to.

If you’d like to see your words published in the form of reviews or features in the future, please see this page for signing-up details.

Thank you for reading our articles through this year. The site will be taking a break until 8 January 2018. May we wish you the best holiday in the meantime.
