We chose the albums for our 2017 list in the only fair way I knew–the albums with the most votes collectively from me and our staff of writers made the list. Our choices do not reflect all of the great blues and rock albums of 2017. There were so many.

If you want to hear some truly inspired and great music, listen to our playlist via the link above. You can also check out our album reviews on our site. Each one has videos so you can hear the band or artist’s music.

We hope you enjoy the playlist!
