Nordic Music Review Albums of the Year 2022
Our traditional January 1st list. But where do I start? At least I feel we've covered a broad range of releases this year, but as always I'm more frustrated by the 100 I missed, rather than those I covered. I'm not going to embed 30 different albums, because that crashes on smaller devices, you know where to look on your favoured streaming platform to find all these.
And of course, honourable mentions to the likes of Knife Girl, Giant Mammoth, Onsloow, Skott, Paul Bäcklin, Suð, Spring Teeth, Insomniac Bears, Honeyvein, Team Play etc etc etc......
Omissions, typos, nationality errors and emails pointing out that Album X was actually released in 2021 welcomed as always....
