Best Albums of 1997

Music list created by Stehako Avatar

This list was created by and in the opinion of Stephen H Koontz

Created January 1998
Updated May 2023

Freshman year of high school provided a plethora of musical offerings for me. It's possibly one of my favorite years as the nostalgia of starting high school and making friends gives good memories to all of what was listened to that year.
It's also one of the most impressive years for HIP HOP which is ironic since two of the genre's greats had been killed before their albums released.
