jesper's top 50 albums of 2022

hi! welcome to my top 50 albums of the year list, it’s quite a unique concept i know i know u can keep your clothes on it’s ok
Blue Rev

but rather than explaining genre tags or actually writing about the music (i feel like i've done enough of that for 2022 lol)
48Head in Hand
Unnatural Providence

imma use this space to just ramble about this year and my life and other self indulgent stuff
We're Not Here To Be Loved

2022 has been a pretty great year for me if i’m being honest
46Tanya Tagaq

it didn’t start off amazingly (fresh out of a breakup, fresh into a lockdown)
This Shame Should Not Be Mine

but right around february life started picking back up again
The Great American Novel

concerts returned, thank god
Silver Sash

sure, one of the many concerts i attended this year may have gotten me covid, but hey, worth it maybe perhaps possibly?
Dissolution Wave

another thing that returned was travelling
41Weyes Blood
And In The Darkness, Hearts Aglow

there are few things i love more than going on silly little trips (sometimes by myself, sometimes with friends) to get away from regular life even tho regular life is pretty cool but idk [run psychoanalysis here]
40Somewhere South of Here
Leave Me For The Crows

this year i managed to visit a lot of cool countries and successfully avoided france altogether lmao nice

i even got to meet some lovely sputppl in some of these places! yay!
38Basement Revolver

speaking of sput, i somehow became a certified official staff member and kept that tag in spite of reviews rarely exceeding 12 words! yay!

and uh speaking of music: 2022 ruled
36Yumi Zouma
Present Tense

2022’s music ruled, for me, in a way where the highs were high as hell and then a whole lot of ‘really good’ albums came into existence as well
Air Guitar

i also realised i reviewed every single one of my top 5 albums lmao oversaturation much
33Absinthe Father
moving forward

anyway enough about not me, back to me
Here Comes the Devil

in terms of uhh let’s call it ‘linkedin worthy’ accomplishments, this year was nice as well!
31Say Sue Me
The Last Thing Left

i managed to obtain a research masters degree by writing about incels lolnice
Glitch Princess

i co-authored a research piece on climate change memes that got published in a real life physical paper touchable book as well yay
29Holy Fawn
Dimensional Bleed

i obtained a job as a teacher at a uni
28Julia Jacklin
Pre Pleasure

teaching truly important stuff including but not limited to memes and film theory lmao
Suffer Summer

(seriously though, i love my job, it’s great)
26Cult of Luna
The Long Road North

also technically speaking this means that trif is a colleague of mine (whoms’d’ve i have never seen smh)
25Oso Oso
sore thumb

besides this i produced and edited some pretty fun videos this year
Every Moment, Everything You Need

and got free colour blindness correction glasses because a colour blindness correction glasses company liked one of those videos lmao they are actually sick tho

the hardest part of life (privileged whining incoming) rn is probably the miserable weather (god i hate the dutch cold)
The Modern Western World

and the goddamn housing market here like my god all i want is to not live a 1.5 hr train ride from my job is that too much to ask for (the answer is yes)
21Denzel Curry
Melt My Eyez See Your Future

but tbh i don’t rly think i’ve ever been happier
20Prince Daddy and the Hyena
Prince Daddy and the Hyena

right now i’m in a funky airbnb somewhere in ~rural~ czechia with two of my best friends

it’s my birthday today, i am now 24 which means people can like me again
18Birds in Row
Gris Klein

(this phenomenal joke was brought to you by listening to pop punk in your 20s)
17Maria BC

and i think the main thing that brings me joy
The Jacket

is that 13 year old me decided to stay on this planet
15Soft Blue Shimmer
Love Lives in the Body

on the off chance that one day i could actually feel the way i’m feeling right now
14Ruby Haunt
Cures For Opposites

i still get sad from time to time obvz
13No Sun
In The Interim

but thankfully it’s rly that - sadness - instead of just absolute emptiness
12Daydream Twins
Daydream Twins

and if anything it makes me appreciate the mostly constant highs all the more
11Jenna and the Janes
Earth Dog Year

i’m happy with where i’m at in life!!
10Japanese Heart Software

and i genuinely hope that whoever’s still reading this is (or will be) too

hashtag the girl reading this or a similar dumb joke to make this shit more light hearted and less corny lmao
8Domestic Terminal
All The Stories Left To Tell

anyway i think i am almost at 50 awkwardly broken up sentences
7The Beths
Expert in a Dying Field

and i can offer no words of wisdom unless they are about meme theory which no one wants to hear haha consider me an expert in a dead field ig get it
6Just Mustard
Heart Under

so all i can say is
5A.A. Williams
As The Moon Rests

happy new year

see you all in 2023
Quiet the Room

get ready for more tiktok-length reviews of whatevergaze you might check out of pity
A Eulogy for Those Still Here

stay safe
1Ethel Cain
Preacher's Daughter

& good luck taking care of yourself :)
