Vinyl sales have been on the up in recent years, and that trend continued in 2018. While music streaming is the main way listeners consume music these days, audiophiles can't help but love holding a physical copy (and nerding out over analog sound). Official Charts recently shared its annual list of the top 40 vinyl record sales last year, and the results are interesting.
Arctic Monkeys top the list with their latest effort (and one of our favorite albums of the year), Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino; however, the rest of the top records vary from movie soundtracks to albums that came out decades ago.
