2022 album project

In an effort to essentially force myself to listen to more music in a more cohesive and rigid way, I've set out an objective of listening to one album a day for the entirety of 2022. I have the list done already, with everything picked out in advance between december 29th and 31st. So while any recommendations won't be included (unless I completely rearrange that list), I will appreciate the feedback, and will likely use it as an excuse to make a video. What I am saying is that either way, please give me more music to listen to :)

Anyways, I have below all of the information about this that you'd like, from the last album I listened to, the upcoming week's worth of albums, and of course the archive of already-listened-to albums (with links; images are too big). And just in case you don't have them, my snapchat and instagram account names are available via my contact page.

Without any more extended delays, here is the most recent album and my thoughts:
