AllMusic 2017 Year In Review
Favorite Rock Albums - We say goodbye to our Best of 2017 coverage with the year's best rock albums, featuring the latest from Ty Segall, Sheer Mag, the War on Drugs, both of the Gallagher brothers, and many others.
Bash & Pop
Anything Could Happen
Tommy Stinson is the only holdover in this new edition of his short-lived '90s band, but the feel and the fun are all there.
Indie rock meeting of the minds called to order by Midlake's Eric Pulido, featuring members of Franz Ferdinand, Band of Horses, and Travis.
We're All Alright!
The veteran rockers sound tight, rowdy, and energetic on this set that's as fun as anything they've cut in a decade.
Intense, visceral, and relevant, the synth rock vets take aim at global affairs and demand action over fear and panic on a stellar 14th set.
Alt-rock supergroup delivers a retro-minded protest record that's as galvanizing as it is fun.
Fabled retro-rock combo returns to the studio after a 24-year layoff and delivers a solid LP full of trademark melodies and jangle.
This final recording is as intimate, mysterious, and complex as the man himself. These ten songs offer an enduring, inimitable portrait of the artist.
By turns thunderous and moody, the London power trio's fifth album is their toughest and most immediate-sounding to date.
How the West Was Won
The first solo album by the former Only One spins tales of drugs, love, and politics shot through with hard-won wisdom and slashing guitars.
Need to Feel Your Love
Strong debut album of hard-rocking AOR sounds from a tough Philly quintet led by the monitor-shredding vocals of Tina Halladay.
The band's second collaboration with producer David Fridmann is a danceable, exciting reinvention that still sounds unmistakably like Spoon.
Ty Segall [Drag City]
With Cairo Gang's Emmett Kelly on board and a live studio band, the album is a thunderous noise-fest balanced with sweet folk-rock tunes.
