GFreedom's 2017 Top-10 album list (Part.2)

Hello all!
Here I will continue the presentation of my Top-10 album list for 2017. If you are interested of reading Part 1, just scroll down a bit, or click here: http://gfreedomathina.blogspot.gr/2017/12/gfreedoms-2017-top-10-album-list-part1.html
Let's continue:
                        DRIFTING SUN: TWILIGHT
  On September 2017, Drifting Sun released their new album, named as Twilight; which is the band's 3rd studio album after a very long break. (The band released 2 more studio albums during the '90's). I have all 3 of their - "modern period" - albums, and I believe that Twilight is the best of them without a doubt. Upon its release, I wrote a - rather long - review here, so in case you are interested, just click here: http://gfreedomathina.blogspot.gr/2017/09/drifting-sun-twilight-2017-review.html
For those who aren't familiar with the band, Twilight is a very good start...
Here's a couple of songs from the album:
DRIFTING SUN: Twilight
DRIFTING SUN: Wings of hope

GANDALF'S FIST: A DAY IN THE LIFE OF A UNIVERSAL WANDERER
  A Day in the Life... is not a new album. It is the re-issue of the official album that was released in 2013. But it is not the same album. Many things changed, songs removed and others were added; that's why I considered it to be a new release. Take a look at the review I wrote about it, and you will understand what I'm talking about: http://gfreedomathina.blogspot.gr/2017/11/gandalfs-fist-day-in-life-of-universal.html
Gandalf's Fist with every new release are showing great signs of improvement and that's something really great!

GANDALF'S FIST: The Battle for Tannhauser Gate

        MACHINES DREAM: BLACK SCIENCE
  Machines Dream is a Canadian band that I discovered recently. Black Science is their third studio release, that followed Immunity (2014) and Machines Dream (2013). I was pleasantly surprised by their style and sound, and I listened to the album many many times! I still do actually...
Here's a review I wrote about it a few months ago (At the time I wrote the review, the band had 3 studio and 1 live albums): http://gfreedomathina.blogspot.gr/2017/08/machines-dream-black-science-2017.html
Here's the song Heavy Water from that album:

        MOSTLY AUTUMN: SIGHT OF DAY
  Mostly Autumn is a high quality English Folk/Prog Rock band, which I like a lot! I have in my music collection 7 of their albums and I listen to them very frequently. Sight of Day is their new work, which I believe is a very good one! Upon the album's release I wrote a review, which you can check here: http://gfreedomathina.blogspot.gr/search?q=mostly+autumn
Here you can listen to a couple of songs if you want:
MOSTLY AUTUMN: Sight of Day 
MOSTLY AUTUMN: The Man Without a Name
