Welcome to the /r/ListenToThis Best Of 2017!

Here there are no scores, no judgments, and no opinions - just obscure music shared by redditors, collected and arranged for you over the course of several months by our dedicated mod team. This list is meant to complement other best of lists on the internet, many of which are linked in the sticky comment below for further discovery.

Set #1 includes everything - the best of the best tracks and a corresponding all-inclusive album playlist.
The other sets are the same content, broken up into genre groups so you can listen according to your tastes. There is a sampler (1 track per album) and a full-album (every track from every album) playlist for each group. We’ve also included a listing of the albums by set in this post as not everything is available on Spotify, Tidal, etc. We tried to prefer an artist’s Bandcamp or Soundcloud, but if nothing else was available, you may see Youtube, Spotify, and iTunes links. The final count this year is 226 artists out of more than a thousand submissions.

What did we miss? Share your favorites in the comments… and happy listening..

The melting pot is a free-for-all music sharing thread posted weekly.

We'd like to invite everyone to reply with...

  • Anything you've been listening to recently and enjoying.
  • Great obscure music that doesn't get the upvotes you think it deserves.
  • Your own playlists, mixtapes, or other good compilations you've found.
  • New releases this week and your opinions on those albums.
  • If you're an artist, share your music with us and tell us about it.

Guidelines to get the most out of these threads...

  • Always provide listening links for anything you share here.
  • Tell us a little bit about what you're sharing and why you like it.
  • No top40/hall of fame artists, no 'corporate bullshit' music please!
  • For top-level comments, downvote if there is no listening link.
  • Format any posted links as follows: [Artist - "Song Title"](https://www.yoururlhere.com) instead of just posting the URL.
