Best albums of 2022


Recommended Posts

With Q1 finished I currently have 2 strong contenders for my top 10.

1. Battle Beast - Circus Of Doom

2. Ghost - Impera

 

Slash - 4 is a solid album and could make the top 10 depending on how strong the rest of the year is.

Looks like Harem Scarem isn't gonna happen for 2022 so that's disappointing.

OK.

here's my take after 3 months :

1. Ghost - Imperia

2. Ronnie Atkins - Make it Count

3. Degreed - Are You Ready

4. Kissin Dynamite - Not the end of the road

5. Reckless Love - Turborider

 

everything else you can keep, but loads of great stuff to come

Pretty early yet but so far for me:

1.  Kissin' Dynamite - Not The End of The Road

2.  Degreed - Are You Ready

3.  Ronnie Atkins - Make It count

4.  Girish & The Chronicles - Hail to the Heroes

That's really all I've got on my list so far.

Some good stuff coming the rest of the year though and I'm sure my list will get shaken up.

Not just been listening to rock.

 

Albums been listening to a lot

Fascination - The Birthday Massacre

Chimes at midnight - Magraduga

Earthling - Eddie Vedder

Shifting Time - Giant (ye, yes, I know it's not classic Giant but I think it stands on it's own as a good album)

The end game - Treat

Need to spend a bit more time with Foxy Shazam and the Marillion. Both had potential.

Nice to see the love for the Birthday Massacre album...superb stuff. Treat is great and the new Marillion is excellent too

I have a larger backlog than I can remember.  An awful lot of listenable albums seem to have been released recently. 

So I'm now well into the Marillion. Their best for a long time. Also loving the Placebo. I'd say their best in 20+ years.

Update as of early May for me:

1.  Kissin' Dynamite - Not The End of The Road

2.  Crashdiet - Automaton

3.  Degreed - Are You Ready

4.  Black Swan - Generation Mind

5.  Ronnie Atkins - Make It Count

We'll see if Def Leppard can crack the list later this month.  Have liked what I've heard so far.  Also really looking forward to Shiraz Lane, HEAT and Skid Row later this year.  I thought the Defiants had an album coming too but not sure I've heard exactly when yet.

There's nothing else on the radar for me for Q2. I got Shinedown in July and Nordic Union in August.  Still waiting on a firm release date for the new albums from Avantasia, Threshold, Kamelot, and Blind Guardian.

1. Battle Beast - Circus Of Doom

2. Ghost - Impera

3. Skillet - Dominion

4. Slash - 4

5. Ronnie Atkins - Make It Count

I'd be very suprised if Crashdiet isn't in my choice now...outstanding release...just sounds so good

I don't know if anyone else follows this list that is constantly updated by the author  but it's a great resource for new releases in our genre.

Mate, I have a link to this on my tablet homescreen.

Like you said, a great resource that I've been using for a few years now.

Whoever this guy is, he's a legend.

Very cool. Is it meant to be ranked? Just trying to figure out how it's sorted. And the new albums that have a ranking but no comment yet, I assume he's waiting to spin a few more times? 

It's a cool list / site.

I think he updates the rankings through the year. You can click on his name and he has similar completed lists for past years. I think the ones without comments are often pre-release albums or ones he hasn't listened to yet.

I like how Force Majeure is his number 7, currently. Is he from the future? Or are promo copies already circulating?
