Hudson's Mid-Year Report Of Most Played Albums/Artists

I'm one of those dopes who feels the need to log everything I listen to on LastFM. As 2020 is now (finally) half completed, here's the reports regarding most-played albums and artists so far this year. Looking at the album plays, it seems like the year was dominated by box sets, which sort of makes sense. A 50 track Wilco box set is, after all, the equivalent of listening to a regular album around four times. Otherwise, this is a pretty typical half-year mix of old faves and new releases.

This really begs the question - why is Venus And Mars up there so high? Not your typical Scott record I'd have thought...

It's because I found a used copy of the expanded reissue. You're right, though. Not a typical selection.
