Like usual, Nightwish dominates this category. I actually didn't realize I listened to The Human Equation that much this year, but with good reason. Imaginaerum... wow. That album blew me away, still does every time I listen to it. That's 8 complete listens of the regular album and 5 complete listens of the instrumental version. Both are excellent! I actually listened to it the first time on December 21st, so it shot up to my number 2 album of the year in only a week and a half!

Octavarium topping the list this year, along with a bunch of The Human Equation songs was to be expected, as those are some of my songs that get me thinking. The other one, which I consider my favorite song, X Japan's Art Of Life dropped to a shocking number 120 with 9 scrobbles. The rest of the songs of my top 10 are just favorites of mine. Escapist becoming a real favorite this year as well.
