ListenBrainz presents: Your Year in Music

The ListenBrainz team has been wanting to provide a retrospective for its users for a few years now and this year we finally had enough resources to make it happen!

The Year in Music report includes a list of your top 50 releases for 2021, presented with cover art:

It also includes top lists, such as Your 50 most played songs of 2021 and Your top 50 artists of 2021 and spiffy map of your listening activity for 2021:

We also created 4 playlists for you to enjoy a retrospective of 2021. Three of these playlists aim to be playlists that feel comfortable for you, made up of tracks that you listened to this year. The Top Missed Recordings playlist, however, is a discovery playlist made from popular recordings that users similar to you listened to, but you didn’t. We make no guarantees that this playlist won’t give you at least little bit of iPod whiplash, which is why we’re presenting it as a discovery playlist that will require a bit more of your attention. However, don’t be discouraged—we’ve gotten a lot of positive feedback about this playlist!

And, this is not all yet—there are more things in the report for you to discover!

We invite you to head over to ListenBrainz to see if we were able to generate a Year in Music report for you. If not, please consider signing up for an account and sharing your listening history with us, so we can create a report for you next year!

Happy listening and happy holidays from all of the MetaBrainz team!
