YoYo's 2022.5

2022 is halfway over! Here's every album I've heard so far. If you disagree with my ratings, please remember that I am correct and you are not.
Honestly, Nevermind


I know this album is an easy target but I just genuinely couldn’t stand listening to it


*chugs 2 liter of Mountain Dew* YEAH ME AND MY FRIENDS, WE THINK YOU’RE F**KING FAKE

I have never been so bored in my entire life
44Perfume Genius
Ugly Season

I have never been so confused by an album’s hype in my entire life
43Vince Staples


Remove everything interesting from the beat and spit in indiscernible monotone, congratulations, you’re officially making “grimy” hip hop
Light Bends

My 2.5s are unintentionally built to trigger tyman128
41Orville Peck

See description of #42
40Big Thief
Dragon New Warm Mountain I Believe in You

The first 2 songs were okay and then this became the Banjo Kazooie soundtrack and I mentally checked out for the rest
39Earl Sweatshirt


See description for #43, but it’s not as egregiously offensive here
38Florence and the Machine
Dance Fever

There have actually been very few releases I’ve disliked so far this year - everything on this album is passable but not great
Call To Arms And Angels

I tried, Sowing. I really did
36Soft Replica
Only Ever In Dreams

Formless but very pleasant. I study with this in the background a lot
35The Weeknd
Dawn FM

Once again, no bad songs but no truly great songs either
34Hot Water Music
Feel The Void

Anyone’s guess as to why this band is still kickin, but this is passable I guess
33Red Hot Chili Peppers
Unlimited Love

They are old
This World is Going to Ruin You

Great metal album with legitimately experience-ruining production
31Harry Styles
Harry's House

A couple of absolute bangers, but also a couple of the worst songs I’ve heard this year
Every Moment, Everything You Need

Johnny’s keys complaint about the Gospel album is my entire complaint about this album
29Basement Revolver

This EMBODIES the meaning of the term “average” lfgggg
Walls of Mirrors

Good songwriting but why is every single riff doubled with an acoustic guitar


Fun lil EP from our very own Conmaniac!
26Typhoon (USA-OR)
Underground Complex No. 1

Fun lil EP from our very own Typhoon!
The Unraveling of PUPTheBand

I want to personally track down whoever is responsible for this production and those interludes. The rest is great
24Out of Service
The Ground Beneath Me

They sound like Brand New but they sound the best when they don’t sound like Brand New
23Beach House
Once Twice Melody

It do be too long
Little Green House

Dude can’t scream but his regular voice is fantastic and so are most of the riffs on this

Fun, ambitious prog metal. However the 4-minute acoustic intro is the best thing here by far
Liminal Rite

I respect this album a lot and the drums go hard in the paint, but can we stop doing spoken word interludes in the year 2022
19Porcupine Tree

Contains less of their ornate style that I love, but the boys are back and they are jammin
18Pusha T
It's Almost Dry

Pusha T has only rapped about one thing ever and it still makes my butt move and/or groove every time
17Rolo Tomassi
Where Myth Becomes Memory

One of my favorite bands who have never really dropped my jaw with a record. This is another wholly satisfying release from them
Dissolution Wave

Stoner emo is “in” this year
15Bliss Fields
Slowly, Forever


Makes me feel like a protagonist in a ‘90s movie, and that’s all I really need in life
14Gang of Youths
Angel in Realtime

Gang of Youths fully capitalize on their desire to write an OST for a Crash Bandicoot game

Meshuggah fully capitalize on their desire to release an acoustic album
12King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard
Omnium Gatherum

The peaks are unreal, but see description for #23

The middle section prevents this from making the top 10, but the opening and closing acts are extremely strong
10Soul Glo
Diaspora Problems

A ferocious assault of an album in the best possible way
9Kendrick Lamar
Mr. Morale and the Big Steppers

Push this album into the top 10 like HUHHHHHH
The Loser

Vincent Roseboom is maybe the most impressive musician on earth right now
Heal My Head

This one has grown on me a lot in the past week or so, some of the guitar tones here are my exact vibe
New Preoccupations

I was disappointed when this wasn’t a new album by Preoccupations, but this ended up being pretty fantastic
5Denzel Curry
Melt My Eyez See Your Future

Dude is just so fun to listen to, even when his subject matter is incredibly bleak. I’ve considered 4.5ing it a few times, but to no avail
4Lizzy McAlpine
five seconds flat


Five seconds flat lands at number four even though there are no five four time signatures on the album
3Late Night Cardigan
Life Is Bleak And It's My Cheat Day

Best vocal performance of the decade so far imo
2Black Country, New Road
Ants From Up There


In which a man becomes so sad about planes that he decides to pursue a new career
1Ethel Cain
Preacher's Daughter
