    Since we are nearing the end of the year, we are seeing a lot of music critics and music publications, release their best of 2022 albums and songs lists. In this thread I’m going to publish some of the best of 2022 music lists, which might otherwise clutter up the awards threads.

    I’m going to be focusing on the following aggregate lists:

    AOTY (albumoftheyear.org)
    https://www.albumoftheyear.org/list/summary/2022/

    Plus we often get a list from Metacritic and there is also acclaimedmusic.net who often update later, but often have a wider selection of international publications included in their aggregate lists.

    If your favourite artists released an acclaimed album in 2022, we might see them here.

    This is the current summary from albumoftheyear.org as of 30-Nov-2022, with 12 album lists counted so far.

    Kendrick Lamar has came out on top of these year end lists before, perhaps he can do it again.

    The Top 20 albums so far are:

    1. Kendrick Lamar – Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers
    2. Wet Leg – Wet Leg
    3. The Smile – A Light for Attracting Attention
    4. Big Thief – Dragon New Warm Mountain I Believe in You
    5. Fontaines D.C. – Skinty Fia
    6. Yard Act – The Overload
    7. Black Thought & Danger Mouse – Cheat Codes
    8. Angel Olsen – Big Time
    9. Michael Head & The Red Elastic Band – Dear Scott
    10. Beyoncé – RENAISSANCE
    11. Jack White – Fear of the Dawn
    12. Undeath – It’s Time​…​To Rise From the Grave
    13. Soul Glo – Diaspora Problems
    14. Dry Cleaning – Stumpwork
    15. Jockstrap – I Love You Jennifer B
    16. Arctic Monkeys – The Car
    17. Nova Twins – Supernova
    18. Black Country, New Road – Ants From Up There
    19. Weyes Blood – And in the Darkness, Hearts Aglow
    20. Pusha T – It’s Almost Dry

    I’m hoping to see Renaissance top Pitchfork’s year end albums list imo. They are yet to give an album by Beyoncé the top spot.

    Surprised Nas Kings Disease 3 isn’t on some of these lists. Its the highest acclaimed rap album of the year on Metacritic

    Renaissance is now leading following New York Times lists

    I noticed that they allowed all three New York Times lists to score, giving New York Times 3x the weighting of most other publications. These lists wouldn’t be counted for the Acclaimed Music EOY 2022 albums list, who have an eligibility rule.

    2. It should be clear that the list was compiled by several people (minimum three) from the staff, or represents the whole staff somehow.

    There have been a lot of new publications such as Rolling Stone and Complex added to the 2022 Music Year End List Aggregate (now with 24 lists):

    The Top 20 albums (from 24 lists) are:

    1. Beyoncé – RENAISSANCE
    2. Kendrick Lamar – Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers
    3. Wet Leg – Wet Leg
    4. ROSALÍA – MOTOMAMI
    5. Jockstrap – I Love You Jennifer B
    6. Angel Olsen – Big Time
    7. Fontaines D.C. – Skinty Fia
    8. Big Thief – Dragon New Warm Mountain I Believe in You
    9. Sudan Archives – Natural Brown Prom Queen
    10. Bad Bunny – Un Verano Sin Ti
    11. Alvvays – Blue Rev
    12. Pusha T – It’s Almost Dry
    13. The Smile – A Light for Attracting Attention
    14. Michael Head & The Red Elastic Band – Dear Scott
    15. Yard Act – The Overload
    16. Soul Glo – Diaspora Problems
    17. Weyes Blood – And in the Darkness, Hearts Aglow
    18. Alex G – God Save the Animals
    19. Black Thought & Danger Mouse – Cheat Codes
    20. Black Country, New Road – Ants From Up There

    Björk getting in those lists after three decades of career is just so nice to see

    Why is RENNAISANCE topping the year end list causing you to vomit? Is it because 30 was so mediocre that a  newbie album by Olivia Rodrigo was even outranking 30 in last year’s list ? 🤣😂😁

    Renaissance + topping Year-End Lists =

    All 4 albums from 2022 are outranking the mediocre 30.

    Shame on all those old white supremacist Grammy voters who would pick another whiny album over the runaway best AOTY of 2022, Rennaisance.

    2022 AOTY Updated Year End List (based on 110 lists)

    1. Rennaisance 439 points

    4. Mr. Morale 265

    12. Un Verano Sin Ti 130

    17. Harry’s House 107

    2021 AOTY Year End List (based on 130 lists)

    19. 30 127 points

    You’re so obsessed with Adele, it’s nice to see. Her most dedicated fan.
    Explain to you how these lists are made and how they work?
