Guest Writer Simon Tucker (Louder Than War / Radio Europa) Albums of the Year

Thanks Paul for humoring me once more by kindly given me the chance to publish my top thirty albums of 2017. This year has once again proven that music is as wonderful and diverse as ever. In my role at LTW I am lucky enough to have the chance to review many great new artists but what I have particularly found pleasing about compiling this list is how many came from other sources (friends, Twitter, radio DJs etc) and only half of this list is made up of albums I have reviewed.

I also discovered whilst compiling the list how many solo artists are included who are in their own way taking their chosen form and bending it into new and exciting territories.

So here you go...my top 30 albums of 2017:
