As the end of the year approaches and the reflection sets in, I realize it’s a fucking miracle we made it. Perhaps it’s the pessimist in me, but 2017 feels as though it has had more tragedies than triumphs. But fear not, here’s a cheesy-ass quote to make it better: “I’ve found that no matter what life throws at me, music softens the blow” – Bryce Anderson.

Here at IHC, we couldn’t agree more. That’s why we’ve compiled our Best Records of 2017 Spotify and Apple Music playlist, including our top 25 albums of the year and 75 honorable mentions (in alphabetical order) to uplift y’all and celebrate this year in music.
