I Don't Hear A Single Albums Of The Year 2022 : Top 10



So we arrive at the Top 10! As mentioned previously, it has been a really difficult task putting these albums in order. My choices may not be your choices, but I think we have a varied 100 and there is something in it for everyone.

Well done Bandicoot! It has been a great year for Wales with some fine albums emanating from a great country. Strangely, for a UK site, Bandicoot have the first British Album Of The Year on IDHAS on the 7th Occasion.

01 Bandicoot - Black After Dark       IDHAS Review





02 Richard Öhrn - Sounds In English       IDHAS Review





03 Dot Dash - Madman In The Rain       IDHAS Review





04 The Mommyheads - Genius Killer     IDHAS Review




05 The Beths - Expert In A Dying Field      IDHAS Review




06 Spygenius - Jobbernowl      IDHAS Review





07 Toni Tubna And The Stockholm Tuba Sect - When The Magic Went Wrong       IDHAS Review




08 Best Bets - On An Unhistoric Night         
IDHAS Review




09 The Tambles - Scraping By        IDHAS Review





10 Outtacontroller - Come Alive        IDHAS Review




Finally, a mention for one album that didn't appear. The one main rule for the IDHAS100 is that an album has to have been reviewed on I Don't Hear A Single. Chris Church's Darling Please wasn't reviewed here, due to me reviewing it for a magazine that insisted that I did not review it elsewhere. I thought Chris would benefit from this bigger audience. There is a real possibility that the album would have been in this Top 10 if it had been reviewed.
