The ultimate, definitive Best Albums Of 2017

It's that time of year again when we start compiling the rankings from all those magazines, newspapers and websites among our sources which publish their albums of the year. The end result will be a comprehensive reflection of the critical favourites of the year. It's the ultimate, definitive "Best of the Best Albums of 2017" chart.

So here's the chart as it stands based on the lists posted by the sources listed below.
Most recent sources added
: AV Club, Pretty Much Amazing, Pop Matters, God Is In The TV, The 405, Earbuddy, Loud And Quiet, NOW, The Observer, Pitchfork, Mixmag

To determine the order 50pts are awarded to the album named No.1, 49pts to the No.2 and so on. If any of our sources don't post a numerical list then all available points are shared equally. We've not included the points just yet.

We'll contunue to update the chart regularly as we get closer to the end of the year.

And look out for the ADM Report too where we present our own albums of the year.
