Sep. 1, 2017: Three Quarters

This is pointless, but whatever. I was going through 2017 releases, thinking about which ones I haven't listened to enough and should listen to, and I decided there are exactly 40 new albums I've heard this year that I really like. There are many more that I kind of like; there are even more that I would like but haven't heard yet. LCD Soundsystem's is one of those that I haven't heard, but—and I know such prejudice is unfair and ill-advised—I just can't see myself liking that record. Anyways, now I have in front of my face, and you have in front of yours, a list of 40 albums from the year's first three quarters (almost) to re-listen to (listed alphabetically, with the top two spots likely occupied by Laurel Halo and Jlin):
