    Mm, I guess most of the artists mentioned in the 2017 songs thread.
    In addition to those:

    There was a lot of retro-New Wave and retro-Italo Disco this year (not much nu-Disco I'm afraid. Hopefully next year!)

    My three favourites in order of enjoyment...





    Synthesis
    - Evanescence

    [​IMG]

    Stunning! Powerful, moving, rich, intimate, fragile and beautiful. It was only released last month and it's already my most-played Evanescence album since 2003's Fallen. This is THE album of the year for me.



    Wonder Woman: Original Soundtrack From The Warner Bros. Television Series - Charles Fox et al

    [​IMG]

    My most-anticipated 2017 album release, which I'd been excited about since it was announced in autumn 2016. The idea of a WW soundtrack has been a dream of mine since childhood. But I never thought it would become a reality. And it was definitely worth the wait. As a bonus, I was able to get a copy signed by two of the legendary composers involved: Charles Fox and Johnny Harris. Like the Evanescence album it's been played a lot.



    Tears On The Dancefloor - Steps

    [​IMG]

    The 2017 release I had the most discussion about. In fact it's the Steps album we've been hoping for since their 2011 reunion was announced.

    I think it's really only all about this for me...
    upload_2017-12-27_15-44-1.png

    I haven't only been wanting this since the 2011 reunion. I have been wanting it since Boxing Day 2001. I honestly couldn't have asked for a better album from them.

    I listened to this one a lot when it first came out and then went off it for some reason.

    I forgot these two. They both could have been on my list.

    I need to check this album out. I keep forgetting to. I love Rain.


    Have you listened to anything from Maroon 5's album that came out this year? It's another one I keep forgetting to check out.

    I've heard some tracks (Wifey has it), but nothing has grabbed me. I wasn't too impressed with their previous one, it never pulled me in like Overexposed.

    I bought this and couldn't get into it. Then seeing your post here and playing "Where's the Revolution" (which I love), I went back and listened again to the album. It still didn't work for me. :(


    Did you get the OMD album?

    I never caught it when it came out and say your nomination in the 2017 thread. I'm unsure whether to buy it or not.

    I can see why as its not their best album and apart from 'Wheres The Revolution' I've only played the other tracks a couple of times.



    Yes and I wasn't so sure at first, but its suddenly growing on me. I'm enjoying 'The Punishment of Luxury' and these two so far...

    I wasn't impressed with their "History of Modern" album and I never bought the follow-up.

    But having listened to the two tracks you posted, I fell in love with them and eventually bought the album the other day. It really feels like OMD have gone back to their roots with this one and I can hear snippets of their earlier album "Dazzle Ships" which I loved.

    I'm very fond of the title track "The Punishment of Luxury" and even to a point where I can hear the melody of "If You Leave"






    :ty: for getting me into this album :love7:

    The music is different of course, Alcazar was more about sample's and mash-up versions, but I thought it was funny that they had used a similar title (albeit unintentional, I'm sure of that).
    Pity the album only has the 7th Heaven radio version of "Story Of A Heart", not the full mix. But maybe there will be a definitive ultimate collector's edition featuring the full length remixes:D
