Guess Dan's top 5 of 2017

Recommended Posts

5. Wildness

4. Cats in Space

3. Don Barnes

2. Night Flight Orchestra

1. One Desire

Only two of these I knew for certain when the thread was started. Crazysam confirmed One Desire for me. Would Dan consider Don Barnes a legit 2017 release? And did he like Wildness that much? Why couldn't Within Temptation have released five albums this year? Would've been so much easier.

3 out of 5 correct, with all 3 in their correct spots.

To answer your question, I do consider the Don Barnes to be a 2017 release as it was never actually "officially" released prior to that.

I reckon CIS, One Desire and Don Barnes are correct.

in that case the other 2 might be Art Nation or HEAT or else it's completely random and something that Dan's never commented on the Forums.

I wonder if it is NFO rather than Don Barnes.  You had 3 correct by including Code Red, Pinnacle Point and NFO.  Then, mrbandwidth removed Code Red and NFO and only had 2.  KarpetRyd included NFO and had 3.   Another possible one is Keldian as Dan had their prior release in his Honorable Mentions and implied their latest might be even better.

well I hope Dan has NFO at No2 - In which case he would be one place out from being correct ;)

It's not H.e.a.t, because he's stated it's not even as good as the last H.e.a.t album, which we all know was the worst H.e.a.t album. Until this one came along.

To add a little bit of intrigue, one of the albums in my top 5 has not been mentioned anywhere in this thread thus far...

For your sake, I hope it's Midnite City, but I doubt it. What about Degreed? Has anyone mentioned Degreed here at all? My guess would be Degreed, or at the wildest end of the curveball spectrum, the Houston album.

Does Dan like Boulevard?

There's gotta be something Proggy or Symphonic that came out last year.

Yup. 

Well, Dan, you've actually made us give a shit about your list this year. 

For once. 

;}

Nah, I look forward to them every year.

Mr Big - Defying Gravity

Overlooked? It's one of the WORST of 2017.

Yep, absolute piece of shit. I don't think it was overlooked - it was just hated by anyone who heard it. ;) Because it's awful...

I reckon Keldian will be there or there abouts. Unfortunately, I only got it just after I sent my finalised list in to Dan, otherwise it would have made a top 5 placing.It's brilliant

I listened to it on Spotify. I can understand why Jez likes it but it's not for me

Aren't they some borderline prog-ish hard rock / metal band? I owned one of their CDs a while ago - sold it. I can kind of remember their sound, but I wasn't a fan. I wonder if they're much different now.

    • I'll give you one example. Tax cuts. Everyone loves tax cuts right?? and according to Trump every American got a tax cut in 2017.....but here are the facts - According to estimates from the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, while most Americans will benefit at least somewhat, the top fifth of earners get 70 percent of the bill’s benefits, and the top 1 percent get 34 percent. The new tax treatment for “pass-through” entities — companies organized as sole proprietorships, partnerships, LLCs, or S corporations — will mean an estimated $17 billion in tax savings for millionaires in 2018   Sorry that's just wrong. And this will add over $1 trillion to national debt. Tax cuts for people expire in 2025/6 while corporation is permanent. Hello austerity measures. Trust me that ain't fun as the UK has found out for the last few years after Labour almost bankrupted our country. 
    • by intelligent he means looking into things beyond the basic stats and lies which are generally used to gloss / cover up what resides beneath And yes Nordic Union will receive no more spins from me. Besides being one paced and generally dull the songs aren't helped by Atkins straining throughout. 
    • I like the song, country vibe or whatever it is. Agree with comments that it wasn't what I expected when I saw the pic. It kinda looks like 3 band members, and they didn't like the look of the 3 of them together, so they asked a sound mixer to stand in the background lol
    • And by intelligent I'm assuming you mean people that follow what's trending in hip circles without looking into things for themselves?  I'm Australian and give very, very little shit about US politics. But I still listen to things and I don't think Russ is alone in his opinion that Obama was a very poor president and that, whether you agree with his politics or not, Trump actioned more stuff in one month than Obama did in years?  Nordic Union album still sucks balls. 
    • Very different to what their image suggests. Lose the country vibe and they're onto something. Not bad at all. 
    • Acoustic rocker( I wouldn't say "Country"). I like it  
    • On first listen through, this album is "meh".  Lots of songs that sound very similar and nothing that sounds particularly inspired.  
    • just heard another snippet and it sounds identical again. I'll give this a go for sure but this dudes songs all sound the same. it's a bit weird
