New year, and a new tweak to the script that compiles the top 50! This shouldn’t have an effect on how the data gets counted, but there may be some minor hiccups between this and December’s charts for those of you who pay attention to those things. On with the list! A lot of Black Friday RSD releases changed hands, getting rock perennials Pearl Jam, QOTSA, and Oasis back into bins and accessible for collectors. Plenty of decent underground releases sprinkled throughout and, as always, Tracy Chapman. Check it out!
