I hope it climbs too, but so much attention is placed on first week sales these days. Hardly any albums climb any more. Number 8 is a fantastic debut, however. It's bound to go platinum. [8D]
You're quite right. Everything is pushed in at the top, and forced underneath by the next wave that's pushed in. Too much marketing. Let the music speak for itself! It'll still sell!
Couldn't agree more. I've noticed the U.K. charts fluctuate a lot more than the U.S. charts, however. Everything over here follows such a pattern.
