Default Album of the Year

I'm currently watching the Billboard Music Awards and it was just announced that the Beatles "1" won album of the year. Congrats!

That's good for a compilation album and sais a lot about the level of other albums.

Here is the piece of news regarding the "1" that I've found in a Greek music site:

http://www.mad.gr/news/new_5791.html

"1" is the first Beatles album that I bought!

I forgot to post the translation:

The Beatles' album "1" received the title of "Best Selling Album Of The Year 2001" at the US, in a new Billboard Chart

The album "1" is the first British album to receive this title after the Spice Girls reached the top at 1997

The sales counted from the 2nd of December 2000 until the 25th of November 2001.
Only 3 british artists (Sting,Eric Clapton, Enya) have managed to enter to the "Top 100 best Selling Albums Of America



Sorry for the mistakes.
I did my best
