Best Music of 2010 (So Far) (NPR listeners)

Cheers from #1, guys!

Are you sure you catched all the best music of the year? Or, while you were distracted by your lovely girlfriend or by a football match, something missed from your listenings? NPR helps us getting a summary of the first six musical months of 2010 with a listeners' survey. The results? A chart of the top 50 albums of the year so far. Just not to leave anything behind. #1 is Gorillaz's Plastic Beach, with The National's High Violet and Black Keys' Brothers on the podium. Here you can find the whole list and some words from NPR guys. Below, the Spotirama Spotify playlist. In the usual double edition: a mammoth with the complete albums (43 out of 50 are available on Spotify) and a lite baby with just three songs each album. Enjoy!
