Welcome to ReZonatz,
Listed below are the BEST RELEASES of 2022.

Let me start off by saying that I have been in the music business as a fan and music promoter for over 40 years, and these are without a doubt the finest releases I have heard or purchased copies of this year.

There is always one better than the other depending on who you talk to, and in my opinion, these albums reflect one person’s taste, mine… They are not based on most album sales, plays, fan poles, or freebies for a vote, for this reason, unlike other best-of articles, this list is intentionally not numbered, instead, the list is in alphabetical order to give them all the best of status.

This is not a genre-specific list so what you will discover here, is some of the world’s best music by some of the most talented musicians and artists in many different styles, don’t be afraid to sample them all.
