Well, what a year it’s been. After hints of a creative revival in rock music in recent years and the realisation of that in 2016, 2017 has been an artistic triumph in almost every corner of heavy music.
For the first time, Chris and Dave have recorded their Album Of The Year lists in podcast form, so this episode of The Decayist is a little different to our usual fare.
Over the course of a rather longer show than is typical for us, we reveal our Top 20 records of the year. There are one or two surprises, a few overlaps and a whole load of ripsnorting rock albums to get your teeth into.
We hope you enjoy listening to our show. You can read about our selections here, and we wish you a very Happy Christmas.
