Another top 10

Postby Norén » Sat Dec 16, 2017 2:41 pm

Time to sum up the music year 2017.
Here's my top 10. The top 3 on my list are way ahead of the others. 3 fantastic albums in their own way.

1 - Major Parkinson – Blackbox
Have liked this band for a couple of years, but the new album is SO much better than their previous ones if you ask me. It has everything. It took a while to sink in but it was worth it. And the fact that I got them to play at next years ProgPower was a fantastic bonus. Can't wait to see them live.

2 - Disperse – Foreword
Never heard anything like it. It simply makes me happy.

3 - Anubis Gate – Covered in black
A band that I did some artwork for a while back, but WOW they really did everything right with this one. Well, except maybe letting me do the artwork haha. What a fantastic album!

4 - Leprous – Malina
Didn't really care for their previous album. The new one is much better. Not as good as their best ones, but still great.

5 - The great discord – The rabbit hole
The best Swedish album of the year. Full of great melodies.

6 - Eidola – To speak, to listen
A little bit of a disappointment. Their previous one was my album of the year. Don't like that they use more growls on this one. Still some fantastic songs on it.

7 - Voyager – Ghost Mile
Best live band out there. See them if you get the chance. And this is their best album so far.

8 - Fifth Density – Dominion of the sun
A new discovery. Dark and lovely. I like!

9 - White Moth Black Butterfly – Atone
Haven't really mad up my mind on this yet. It keeps growing. Moved up to my top 10 this last week. It might move even higher before the year is over.

10 - Barock Project – Detachment
Some pure, well played progrock. Nice album.

Big fan of The Great Discord. It's a very good album. It sits roughly in the same space as Tantal for me. It's been in the playlist for a while now, and might slip into my top 10.

I like the new Leprous, but nearly as much as the last album, which I adored.

Voyager is just great. They do what they do, and they do it well.

The Fifth Density album is another underrated gem from this year. Reminds me some of Skyharbor's last couple of albums.

I want to know who talked Dan into thinking "Vikings meet The OA" would be a genius idea in those White Moth Black Butterfly videos.
