Favorite Albums I Listened To This Year

Per my January meaningful consumption post, I noted all the albums I listened to (in full and at least twice through) in 2022. It was over a hundred–121 to be exact.

The below list represents only those I listened to all the way through for the FIRST time (usually on long walks or late at night through headphones) and if I had a vinyl collection, these would be definite purchases. Speaking of vinyl, my younger son asked Santa for a record player this year and his wish was granted. His first requested album?…Kendrick Lamar’s “Damn.” Kid’s got great taste!

Unlike the favorite films post, I just listed the albums without any commentary. Give ’em a listen and lemme know what you think. Here goes….

(1) Neil Young “Live At Carnegie Hall”

(2) Jackson Browne “Saturate Before Using” (saw him in concert at the Greek in September; awesome show!)

(3) Elliot Smith “Roman Candle”

(4) Thom Yorke “The Eraser”

(5) Yeah Yeah Yeahs “Cool It Down”

(6) Cat Stevens “Mona Bone Jakon”

(7) Plains “I Walked With You A Ways”

(8) Wild Child “Expectations”

(9) Levon Helm “Dirt Farmer”

(10) Billy Corgan “Ogilala”

Honorable Mentions: Hall & Oates “Abandoned Luncheonette”; Wilco “Cruel Country”; Mount Erie “A Crow Looked At Me”; The Smile “A Light For Attracting Attention”; Heatmiser “Mic City Sons”; Jess Williamson “Sorceress”

P.S. – Send me your faves. I wanna listen!

P.P.S. – This is my last post for 2022 and #785 overall. Haven’t missed a weekday since I started this blog on January 1, 2020. Thank you so much for reading and commenting and encouraging. I’m extremely grateful to all of you and am rooting for you big time in 2023. Go make it happen! See you at #1,000.
