Die Toten Hosen: Laune Der Natur: Unbelievable package of the Laune Der Natur alongside a shedload of punk classics recorded with members of ancient bands such as SLF, the Stranglers, Angelic Upstarts and many more.
Power Quest: Sixth Dimension. My album of the year, no question, utterly supreme power metal.
Cats in Space: Scarecrow. 2017 has featured two great Styx albums including this one!
Europe: Walk the Earth. Their best since reformation as far as I'm concerned.
Sparks: Hippopotamus. Stupendous creativity forty years into a career.
Freedom Call: Master of Light> Quite why it took me a year to purchase this one is beyond my comprehension.
I very much enjoyed The Great British Alternative Music Festival in early October and fulfilled long-held ambitions to catch The Skids, Anti-Nowhere League, Angelic Upstarts, the Vapors and many others.
