This year my passion for neoclassical/contemporary classical music exploded and that surely reflects on my choices for this 2017’s Best Albums list (see Max Richter, Laura Cannell or Sakamoto). On the other hand, I’ve been pleasantly surprised by National’s and St. Vincent’s new albums: it’s nice to see accomplished artists who are able to keep being original and reinventing theirselves. In a nutshell, this has been a deeply interesting and eclectic year so, at least musically speaking, we may not complain about it.
