Top 100 Music Albums of 2022 by DommeDamian (2022)

2022, the beginning of a new, album journey.

Speaking of January, just the first month, I do appreciate how most of the artists (lots more than 2021) releases shorter albums (like say 25-40 min) instead of an hour.

Gloomy, meditative, delicate, passionate, wintery piano played by Nebel Lang, that is absolutely fantastic. Sometimes you really needa record like this in your life, and Directions For Stopping surely stops in your tracks to help you inhale about the weight of everything around you even if just for a moment. Just as an inhaler can be a great help for people needing to breathe better, Directions For Stopping can be a helper in these cases of our processing. Listening to it alone can be very emotional, yet also relieving of some sorts, helping you realize that you can pause your state and simply be. Be.

There folks, in the first month still of 2022, we found an album surpassing the greatness of the last year's very best, simply by touching a piano for 28 mins and nothing fucking else. That's crazy. It's like a dark moisty cloud was around 85% of 2021's quality of music and this album is also kind of like the soundtrack of that cloud floating away with the past.

This is some very nice and interesting cookie cut-ups between field recordings, sound effects, and instrument-samples (I guess so), coming together as a way to celebrate natural sounding things. Both meditative and exploring, Oceans of Milk And Treacle creates a universe that has visiting hours when you need it the most. The fact that he is 79, and has made music for decades really says something. I'm gonna listen to more of his albums if what comes out with at grandpa age is this excellent.

Now THIS is what I call a real musical chamber field recording experience. Not only does this thing flow tremendously from track to track, not only does it have a stellar instrumental balance with the nature recordings, and not only doesn't it contain a single spot that is less than at least good plus; it also has a climax that both stay grounded with its earthly aesthetics and is satisfying. Rough And Beautiful Place is wonderful, and one of this year's very best! This is preeeetty much as good as my last album of the year (2021's As The Love Continues) - will reveal if it is on future listens - so if this is the standard of what 2022 is gonna be, I am nothing but hopeful for music now.

Also, I'd no idea that it was Parannoul's alias, and it's actually great to hear an artist releasing one (or two) bad-mediocre albums come out with a fresh one at the beginning'a the next year.

...and I thought you could not amuse me with music sounding like this anymore. The Till(er)man comes out with a new singular album, this time reviving a super inspired vocal jazz style straight out of the 1950s and 60s. It is deliriously produced and he sounds just as smooth as he ever has been. And considering that I consider him as one of the greatest, most honest and extravagant songwriters of the 21st century, I haven't even dove into the lyrics on this thing yet and it is already one of the greatest fucking things I have heard all year.

I think this likely will grow up to an 80, because goddamn this album has beauty in his nature, both in terms of acoustic guitar/other instruments, and the raw sounding recording. Isaac also has a calm voice, nothing complicated or anything. The album is nothing groundbreaking but it does strive for that either, it simply wants to connect with inner peace and playful doses of nature. And y'know, I'm all for that.
Only in friggin' January and it is already a better year for music than 2021.

I'm still in my earlier stages of appreciating the drain but come on we can all agree that this is a good album, especially by their standards. Bladee and Ecco are really the 2 best members. Longer comment coming.

Like swimming in a lake, discovering that its deeper and more substantial than what you see on the surface, exploring it for a bit (for like a good 20 minutes) and then you realize you either have just slept underwater, it has just been a minute or so, or you have drowned and are now on your way through the ocean to heaven.

Simply a nice and super well composed singer-songwriter project. This guy singing his heart out. Incredible, very much recommended.

Mystic honey-music mixed with lesser-great-but-still-good-enough progressive jazz-rock. This is what this world needs a little more of; a great musical trip through mystical phases of the universe.
