Here at All Things Loud, we’ve spent the last few weeks meticulously selecting and analysing the 20 best pieces of music to see the light of day in 2017. Following hours and hours of streaming, as well as swathes of disagreements and list re-shuffles, we’ve finally come to a unanimous decision: our Top 20 contains a mixture of music from all corners of the musical spectrum, and one which should hopefully do justice a year which most certainly has not been very easy on multiple level.
