In a year needed for some isolation and meditation, it helps to plug in some earbuds and escape with a brand new album. These are the top picks for albums of the year brought to you by the women of Passerbuys.

With a bunch of new artists making their debut albums this year, it may have been a little more difficult for the women of Passerbuys to narrow down a choice. However, SZA might have just saved 2017 with her album, CTRL, which is the most recommended album of our list. If you've listened to the entire top ten and need to discover some new artists, then we've even collated some honorable mentions down below. Then be sure to check out the playlists of the women of Passerbuys from around the world that we featured this year over on Spotify.
