Best Music of 2022

I collected over 12 lists of Best Music of 2022 from the Internet, newspapers and magazines and compiled them into one meta-list. Here are the results: every recording on four or more of the original source lists, organized by rank (that is, with the albums on the most lists at the top).

Note 1: I have provided genre descriptions of the artist from Wikipedia as a guide.
Note 2: These are not my personal opinions. I have not listened to all this music.
