Once again, no real big surprises. Interesting to see Stratovarius still up there, despite the fact I don't think I listen to them very much. The same artists as last year, except Tarot overtook Within Temptation for the number 5 spot.

Top Albums Of 2010

2) Nightwish - Century Child - 58 scrobbles
3) Nightwish - Wishmaster - 55 scrobbles
4) Lacuna Coil - Comalies & Nightwish - Dark Passion Play - 51 scrobbles

Lots of Nightwish up there this year (Oceanborn was 7 and Once was 14). The runaway hit of the year for me was The Human Equation. It came out of nowhere and easily became one of my favorite albums.

Art Of Life, my favorite song ever. I listened to it a lot this year, with good reason. Spirit Dreams Inside got stuck in my head after watching Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within and never was able to get it out of my head (nor the memory of how tragically bad that movie was). Seeing Day Three: Pain and The Decisive Battle up there was kind of surprising. Lack of Nightwish and Dream Theater songs was kind of weird too, but there's a bunch of songs by both of them just a little further down. Everything else sounds just about right though.
