Help us Rank 2017's Best Albums!


The editors of The Collapsar would like for YOU (yes, you!) to contribute to our Best Albums of 2017 list. Here's how: 

  1. Send us your list of favorite albums of 2017 to
  2. The lists should include a minimum of 5 albums and a maximum of 30 albums.
  3. Lists can include original studio LPs, live albums, and EPs. Lists cannot include non-original compilations and re-issues.
  4. The final list will be tallied from contributed lists using maths.
  5. If you’re interested in contributing a 75-150 word blurb for any of the albums on your list, include said blurb with your list. If the album or albums in question make the final list, we might contact you and use your blurb in the final, published list.

You can check out our 2016 list here. Please send your 2017 lists by Monday, Dec. 4.
