My Personal Albums Of The Year 2017

My personal favourite albums of the year proved to be a lengthy list this year. I thought there were was a lot of great music released this year. So I decided to do something different this year. Because of the radio show I tend to be exposed to quite a lot of artists from the UK. It is by far not the only country of origin for me but a result of the show. So I figured I would do something a little different and separate the albums into two categories, the UK and ROW (rest of the world). Agree with my choices or not but I hope you enjoy.
