Top 20 Albums So Far and the Update

To everyone, I deeply apologize for being in shutdown mode due to family emergencies. My family is more important right now. I will be back, I just don't know when. It will be either late July or in August of when I will come back. But it's been rough for me since of what's been going on. Again, I.Will.Be.Back. It will probably be in August when I'll come back to review. Again, I'm deeply sorry for the long delays.

I will be back on the review train, when I'm ready. I just have to find when the time's right. But, as I've mentioned, Family comes first. Anyway, here's my top 20 albums so far of 2017.

Nice list! A few I haven't heard yet, so, thanks!

Have you heard:
Tree Tops' "Ghost Don't Dance with Shoes" or
Weserbergland's "Sehr Kosmish Ganz Progisch" or
Kant Freud Kafka's "OnĂ­rico" or
Anathema's "The Optimist" or
Cast's "Power and Outcome" or
Seas of Mirth's "Hark! The Headland Approacheth"

These are some of my 2017 Top 20 (so far) that aren't on your list.

I've only heard Cast's Power and Outcome which is very good. Anathema's The Optimist didn't grab me. I haven't heard the others. including Tree Tops, Wesebergland, Kant Freud, or Seas of Mirth.
