BEST OF 2017 // Albums

Hi everyone.!
First of all, i‘m sorry for this nearly one month in absence straight after adam officially introduced me on the blog.! Not back from the dead, but back from a vacation at short notice in switzerland. Nearly 3 weeks with my girlfriend in a lonely snowed-in mountain hut in an area called “grindelforest“, located in the bernese oberland; the mountain eiger was not so far away. Amazing, breathtaking nature like from a picture book. No laptop, tablet or else...just a smart-tv and our smartphones to get connected to the rest of the world; was totally relaxed & chilled…but goddamn freezing cold.

Now i’m back for 8-9 days, total refreshed and really excited to start contributing my part to this blog, that is one of my favorites for the last three years or so. A huge thanks goes out to adam for his kindness and trust in me.! I really appreciate it, man.! Everyone who likes can surely continue to drop requests at me in the chat-box. I will keep trying to fill them all. Perhaps some appear on the main page, otherwise in the chat-box as usual.

So, going on with my first post on the mainpage, here‘s my personal best of 2017 list.! It’s impossible for me to make this a short one of 10-20 entries or so. My list is a bit expanded… To be precise, it’s a top 100 list. German thoroughness…😎 2017 had too many good releases, it wouldn’t do them justice to leave them all out. Also a small compensation for my absence in the last four weeks…😉 Most of the releases should be known to the viewers, but hopefully there‘s also something new that some of you dig. The first 20 entries have their individual ranking, the rest is sorted alphabetically, everything is total subjective.!

Have fun and enjoy scrolling through my best of 2017 list.!
