As we look back on the year in music, we've been hearing from our editors about their favorite albums of the year, both on a genre-by-genre basis and with lists from each editor. But now it's time to hear what you think. Based on the user ratings you've provided throughout the year, we created a ballot of the year's best-rated albums, and we've given you each five votes to throw towards your favorite releases of 2017. We'll be back with the results early next year. Happy voting!

The poll has closed. We are tabulating the results and will share them shortly.
