FEATURE: 50 albums that turn 10 in 2017!

A decade is, especially in the music world, quite a long time, even if it does seem to just flash by and feel like just a month. Ten years ago, back in 2007, things were very different; MySpace was still the kingpin of social media, Bring Me The Horizon were dodging bottles whilst supporting Killswitch Engage night after night, and Give It A Name and Taste Of Chaos were still a thing.

Along with all the nostalgic memories, 2007 was also host to a plethora of great records, some being the first major step for a lot of bands towards the lofty heights of their career that they’re revelling in today.

Of course there are hundreds, but we filtered together 50 great albums that turn 10-years-old this year to remember those modern classics.

NOTE: These albums may bring intense levels and high frequencies of smiles, jumping, involuntary head nodding/banging and limb movements, and uncontrollable happiness.

Kurt Cobain once said that “It’s better to burn out than to fade away”, and, whilst The Dillinger Escape Plan certainly aren’t burning out (if anything, they’re at their creative peak), they’re definitely not fading away.

TOP 10 ALBUMS OF 2016!

It’s been unquestionable that 2016 has been, if we’re going to put it very mildly, a whirlwind of a year across several areas of the world.
