As we look back on the year of well-crafted music from 2022, we were blown away by the breadth of quality. If you had a hard time keeping track of the flood of new music that came our way, do not fear – we are here to help. In fact, UTR assembled our panel of critics to vote on the most meaningful and standout releases, and in mid-January will be sharing our collective list of the “Top 11 Gourmet Albums of 2022.” These half-dozen projects are exceptional and applauded by our panel, but the way the votes landed, they fall just outside our Top 11 list. These are definitely worthy of your time and attention, so we are excited to shine a spotlight on the 2022 Honorable Mentions.
[These are listed in no particular order. To qualify, must be a Christ-following artist, and the project released between 12/1/21 and 11/30/22.]
