When we decided to ask the Music Sales staff for their top ten albums of 2017 we knew it was likely to be a fairly varied list over all. We’re a group of people who live and breathe music, but music is as diverse an art form as any and we expected it to be a bitter fight for access to the top ten. Even so, and with over a hundred different albums getting a nod, we ended up with some clear favourites for the album of the year. From a list that included everything from Meshuggah to Little Mix these albums came up time and time again. So, without further ado (and with some fudging on the playlist due to availability of one of the albums), here are the tracks from our top ten albums of 2017 as voted for by the Music Sales staff. Happy New Year.
