musicOMH’s Most Read Album Reviews: 2010 Q4

Kanye West - My Beautiful Dark Twisted FantasyThe Top 50 album reviews of 2010 Q4 is a chart of readership in our album reviews section between October and December 2010.

While the most popular articles of the year overall were the pages that made up our Top 50 Albums Of 2010 chart, Spotify playlist, Editor’s Picks and what-not, the albums section was overall again the most popular of the site.

During this quarter a Facebook record was set – for the most shared review, this being David Sylvian’s Sleepwalkers (191 shares so far). But then along came Duffy for an interview, and the record was almost immediately broken by the resulting feature (280 shares to date). And now our review of Robert Plant’s Band Of Joy has surpassed even that, with 332 shares. WHERE WILL IT ALL END?
