Every Double J Classic Album from 2017

Primary tabs

From M.I.A. to Television, Chemical Brothers to Jimi Hendrix, The Hummingbirds to The Drones...

Every week, Double J's Caz Tran goes deep on the albums that have had an immense impact on the history of music as we know it. Albums that get better with age, as we realise the influence they have had on artists who've followed in their wake, as well as on us as people.

Caz brings brilliant insight into the records that we love, and some that we might have missed the first time around. Check out those insights in the very impressive list of records below.
