Of course, there's still a month left in 2017, so they jumped the gun a little.  It's unclear how many albums they were able to hear that aren't out yet . . . other than the new U2 album, which is on their list.

That said, there aren't many high-profile albums set to come out over the next month.  Eminem supposedly has an album coming out any day now, but there's no release date.  Luke Bryan and N.E.R.D. also have albums out next month.
