musicOMH’s Most Read Album Reviews: 2010 Q3

OMD - History Of Modern The Top 50 album reviews of 2010 Q3 is a chart of readership in our album reviews section between July and September 2010. Only reviews published in 2010 were eligible. Reviewers’ names are included in italics.

Notable in the Top 10 were Nos. 2, 3, 4 and 6, all of which were published several weeks (ie. “in good time”) ahead of their release dates. Judging from this data, it’s at this time, leading up to the album release, that our readers want to read about them.

DFA-signed Shit Robot was also the highest placed debut in this quarter, while the review of David Sylvian‘s Sleepwalkers became our most Facebook shared album review ever, chalking up 158 shares at the time of writing.
