    Post By:

    RollingStone.com recently published an interesting piece about the top 10 best-selling albums of 2011, according to sales data from Nielsen SoundScan. While the Beatles' Abbey Road takes the #1 slot for the third year in a row, the rest of the list predominantly features 2011 releases from indie artists - the new wave of vinyl bands. And there is no doubt that their music sounds stunning in this format.

    2. Fleet Foxes - Helplessness Blues (29,700)
    3. Bon Iver - Bon Iver (27,200)
    4. Mumford & Sons - Sigh No More (26,800)
    5. Radiohead - The King of Limbs (20,800)
    6. Adele - 21 (16,500)
    7. Bon Iver - For Emma, Forever Ago (16,200)

      With all the releases that came out on vinyl in 2011, it’s impressive the Black Keys managed to get two albums on the list.
