If, understandably, you choose to skip over this nonsense (sorry if you followed this link from some artist or track page thinking it would be something substantial), I'm currently partway through counting down my top twenty albums of the year here with download links and overly-wordy reviews and junk.
And now, as per usual, my fifty most played artists. With play counts and position changes from last year. Bolded were not within last year's top fifty. Underlined are artists I hadn't properly listened to before this year.
