My Favorite Albums of 2017 (video)

I find it hard to judge art as "best". We can discuss how it was executed technically but how much you enjoy the art doesn't always correlate to it's quality of construction. Art resonates with you or it doesn't, whether it's music, movies, painting, sculpture, books, etc. Therefore my lists are my favorites of the year. In this case, albums I have gone back to and will re-visit in the future, these are my favorite albums of 2017. #rockfile
