Top 0.5% fan. I guess that means I need to buy his vinyls?

I listen to albums, not to songs. Spotify noticed and made a comment: "You like to play albums all the way through, from opening track to the final note". Then they mixed my favorites albums into a playlist. Looking at it makes me feel bad :(
 
My top five might be the strangest mix of music in the history of top fives... :D

So far ... I recognize one song - Fast Cars. Am I the "basic bitch" of Spotify?

I recognize Paper Trails from your list. It is a fine song. Plus, as far as I am concerned, the point of this is to discover new music, so if all is new to you, you got the best out of this :)
