The Best Albums of 2017 (So Far!): Charli XCX, MUNA + More

With June underway, we’re officially halfway into 2017—crazy, we know—which means it’s also officially time for some serious midyear reflection on the state of pop, among other musical genres.

Just like last year, the PopCrush editors took a look back at all the major albums released between January and June and we selected our very favorites from the bunch.

From Michelle Branch‘s glorious indie rock comeback to Charli XCX‘s angelic R&B mixtape to STEPS‘ euphoric return to dance-pop, our selection of the year’s best in music (so far!) is diverse enough for music lovers of all tastes to appreciate.

Scroll through the gallery above to see which records we haven’t been able to stop listening to this year.
