The final list is here, and it’s almost all but definitive. Looking at the numbers, in comparison to 2010 – the amount of music bought increased for the first time since 2004. With the social networking boom, the increase in promotion tenfold, and just people responding to the overall quality of music has helped in making 2011 a great year for music. This list is brought to us by the awesome people at UKMIX, who keep track of almost every current chart known to man – so thank you again.
