Recommended Posts

This is a companion thread to https://www.rllmukforum.com/index.php?/topic/325265-best-new-music-2022/ - if you've already posted there and would like your favourites to be part of the compiled list, please post your results here - feel free to list up to 10 albums - in this format:

 

Position - Artist - Album

 

for example,
 
01 - Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs - When The Lights Go
02 - PVA - Blush
03 - Warrington-Runcorn New Town Development Plan - Districts, Roads, Open Space

 

PLEASE DON'T POST ANY OPINIONS OR RESPONSES TO OTHER FORUMITES' CHOICES IN THIS THREAD - you can do that in 

 

https://www.rllmukforum.com/index.php?/topic/325265-best-new-music-2022/
 

The spaces and hyphens between position, artist and album are really important as it means that I can import the text straight into Excel without having to piss about with reformatting, and also I can reuse the  2008/2009/2010/2011/2012/2013/2014/2015/2016/2017/2018/2019/2020/2021 spreadsheet. I'll leave this thread running until the end of 31 December. You can edit your list as much as you like - I won't compile them until I close the thread.
 
If you have any questions then PM me - if the answer is useful to others I'll add it to this post, below.

Q - Are reissues allowed?
A - As long as the reissue date is in 2022, yes.
Q - Are EPs allowed?
A - Yes.
