    Vic Galloway’s Best Albums of 2017

    The album is dead, right? No, not right… Certainly not in my opinion anyway. I still reckon the album is the perfect showcase for an artist’s work, and loads of great ones have been released in 2017. So I’m delving in here with a full festive fifty across eclectic genres – indie, rock, hip-hop, electronica, synth-pop, acoustic, experimental and so on. You’ll know a few of them, but some might be completely new to you. Investigate at your leisure whether on vinyl, CD, cassette, download or streaming…
