Jack Rabid’s Best Of 2023 (400 Nods Again!): Top 200 LPs (New Recordings), Top 140 Retrospective/Reissue Releases, And Top 60 Stand Alone Singles & EPs

The Damned, Darkadelic
13 January 2024

Hi folks!

Since I have now completed my two countdown radio shows for the Top 50 albums of 2023 — go to to hear one song from each over both shows! — here is my complete list of the 200 best albums, 60 best archive/retrospective/reissue releases, and 140 best stand-alone singles and EPs of this previous year—my best bets on yet another great year for music, old and new!

And to any and all of you who will scan this humble rundown, I hope this list inspires you to find, or give a second look to, a few great releases you might miss otherwise that you end up truly loving. Otherwise, such lists are just a whole bunch of navel-gazing time wasting—not my thing at all. But as I listened to all of these 400 selections a great deal this year, perhaps you might like some of them too, or will be glad to see them recognized if you are already enjoying them.

Cheers to you all and once again — happy new year!
