Suddenly, the year is drawing to a close and it’s time once again to pore over the albums that made their mark on our writers

Suede – Autofiction

What do you want from an albums of the year list?

Reversed order? One album a day? Lots of pretty pictures?

Or a Top 50, arrived at by means of mathematics and a spot of editorialising, of albums reviewed that year, with links to those reviews?

The latter, but of course.

So here it is: musicOMH’s Top 50 Albums Of 2022.

Thank you to our contributors for contributing, our readers for reading, and artists for artisting during 2022. The world would be far duller without you all. And if you’d like to contribute, please get in touch.

In the meantime, happy holidays, and chin chin for 2023.
