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.
47Drake
Honestly, Nevermind


---1'S---

I know this album is an easy target but I just genuinely couldn’t stand listening to it
46Underoath
Voyeurist


---2'S---

*chugs 2 liter of Mountain Dew* YEAH ME AND MY FRIENDS, WE THINK YOU’RE F**KING FAKE
45deathcrash
Return


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
RAMONA PARK BROKE MY HEART


---2.5'S---

Remove everything interesting from the beat and spit in indiscernible monotone, congratulations, you’re officially making “grimy” hip hop
42Pridelands
Light Bends


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


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
Sick!


----3'S----

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
37Archive
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
32Vein.fm
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
30Deserta
Every Moment, Everything You Need


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


This EMBODIES the meaning of the term “average” lfgggg
28Overgrow
Walls of Mirrors


Good songwriting but why is every single riff doubled with an acoustic guitar
27SVMMERCAMP
Sequoia


---3.5'S----

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


Fun lil EP from our very own Typhoon!
25PUP
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
22Anxious
Little Green House


Dude can’t scream but his regular voice is fantastic and so are most of the riffs on this
21Wilderun
Epigone


Fun, ambitious prog metal. However the 4-minute acoustic intro is the best thing here by far
20Kardashev
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
Closure/Continuation


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
16Cloakroom
Dissolution Wave


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


---4'S---

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
13Meshuggah
Immutable


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
11Pinegrove
11:11


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
8Gospel
The Loser


Vincent Roseboom is maybe the most impressive musician on earth right now
7Valleyheart
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
6Caracara
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


----4.5'S----

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


----5'S---

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