30 Favorite Finnish Albums of 2023

The year end routine continues with the Finnish albums of the Year. A good year of Finnish music again and even though the list is fairly long, I still had to leave out a lot of good albums. As usual, this is list is 100% subjective. I do not try to cover everything and make any kind of objective best Finnish albums of the year list. It’s just my favorites and the music that I loved during the year. I did put the numbers there, but it’s kind of arbitrary. Album of the year was obvious, because that’s the album I loved by far the most in 2023 even if you take all countries into consideration. #2 was pretty set as well, but after that I could easily move albums up or down 5 spots and be just as happy with the list. Music is love, not a competition.

There’s a playlist link with one song each, if you are into such things. An easy way to give an introduction, but do try to the buy music that really matters to you. If you are able to do that of course. Food, rent and staying alive are always more important no matter how hard one wants to support the arts. Oh and I was lazy and didn’t write any blurbs, but I think most of you would only check the albums on the list anyway. Bandcamp embeds only for top three, because otherwise the page just slows down.
