2017 albums, report card: Q2

Yesterday, I posted my highlights for quarter two. And here, you get the full list of what I listened to these past three months from 2017, organized by grade. These include albums from quarter one, January to March, because you can’t get through everything in one go. I’m sure you’ll miss some (glaring?) omissions. Please know I just have not got to them, and eventually I will — whenever that will be.

I’d say anything 6 or above is worth checking out from this list, which should be more than plenty.
