|The Obligatory Favourite Albums of the Year List|
This year has absolutely soared by. It only feels like a few weeks since it started. It's already just 14 days until Christmas and 24 until New Year's. That's right, there's just THREE weeks left of 2022. It's been a good year for me, and I think it's been a great year for music. Here's my favourite albums of the year. In no particular order.
|1||King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard|
The album that triggered an epiphany and made me realise that King Gizzard are my favourite band of all time, and IMO the best of all time, The Beatles be damned.
A Light For Attracting Attention
|6||Poets of the Fall|
|8||King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard|
Ice, Death, Planets, Lungs, Mushrooms and Lava
Seriously, if you've never heard of King Gizzard, go and listen to them right now. Every fan would recommend you start with Mind Fuzz, then Nonagon and the five 2017 albums. If you enjoyed those, work your way through everything else.
|9||King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard|
And the best part is they literally have something for everyone. And the fanbase is actually super chill. I can't stress this enough, go and check them out NOW. They're seriously phenomenal. I know I have a lot of hot takes, but this is the one thing you can 100% trust me on.
|10||King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard|
My album of the year, and the last of 3 released in one month (and five in one year for the second time). 6 if you count the remix album Butterfly 3001 and 7 if you count the collaboration with Tropical Fuck Storm called Satanic Slumber Party. Yes, Tropical Fuck Storm is an actual band name.
The End, So Far
The Sick, the Dying... and the Dead!
Mercury - Acts 1 & 2
Act 2, obviously. Act 1 was released last year.
|man 13 is reminding me i should listen to fall of troy it's been a few years|
|I still can’t believe the seahawks passed on the 1|
|Glad I wasn't the only one that thought Fall of Troy when I saw that|
|"It's already just 14 days until Christmas and 24 until New Year's"|
|Checking King Gizzards Mind Fuzz on account of yer list. Had no idea they were dropping that much music so quickly. Insane. |
|^ They'll most likely end up with some world record for studio albums...|
From what I've heard, they're really good and MONUMENTALLY prolific, but by the time I've played through one album, they seem to release six more, so I don't think I'll ever catch up.
|All I know of Fall of Troy is FCPREMIX from Guitar Hero. Completely different band.|
|The Gizz output is ridiculous. 23 albums in 10 years and I only dislike one of them. Omnium Gatherum will place highly on my list this year - just need to refresh myself on a few, check out a few I've missed and I'll be done.|
