List: Top Ten Albums Released in UK During 2008 by Number of Scrobbles

Date: December 2008

Source: Last.fm

Base: All albums released in the UK in 2008 that were scrobbled on the Last.fm web platform. To "scrobble" a song means that when you listen to it, the name of the song is sent to a web site (for example, Last.fm) and added to your music profile.

Notes: The link above will take you to the Last.fm 'Best of 2008' page which explains the methodology behind the rankings, the data on number of scrobbles and also similar lists, such as top single tracks. There are also radio links including the top 30 artists, albums and tracks of the year. Here is how they introduced the research: "While other annual retrospectives are based on editors' picks or sales data, the Last.fm Best of 2008 list is based entirely on what the Last.fm community has been listening to this year and shows which artist, albums and tracks defined the musical landscape in 2008."
