Every year at this time, most music sites give you a run down on the
best acts of the year. Generally, sites start rolling out “Best of”
features in December, however at Last.fm we decided to wait until
January so that we can show a complete year’s worth of data. This year
we’ve also added a datavis feature, which shows key Last.fm stats,
including the music news events of the year that made a noticeable
change in an artist’s listening levels – or scrobbles.
As well as featuring on the last.fm website,
we also printed a very limited edition A2 poster.
