Seas. 4 - Ep. 19 - The Top 10 Rock Albums From the First Half of 2023 (January to June 2023)

Hello and welcome to the Powered By Rock Podcast. I’m your host Isaac Kuhlman, and I wanted to actually spend a bit of time today to catch up on the year of 2023 so far, because there have been some phenomenal rock albums put out this year, and if you haven’t been paying attention, you may have missed them.

So, that’s what this whole episode is going to be about - The Top Ten Rock Albums from the First Half of 2023 (January to June)

You are going to get albums from very well known bands who are putting out good albums, and then you are also going to get some albums from some bands you definitely haven’t heard of.

Obviously, at the end of each year, we also do an awards ceremony called The Powered By Rock Music Awards, and any albums missed from now until December will have their chance to move into the nominations for each category that we do there, but I always think it is fun to dig in early AND not have to wait a full year to get some good music recommendations.

I am also going to give you a list of honorable mentions that you should check out in the show notes below this episode as well.

Let’s jump into the recommendations in no particular order, but make sure to stay to the end to get my insight from each album.
