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.

It's absolutely sickening - it's a gripe I have with the world, everything's too commercialised. And most people my age seem fine with that - they've just been sucked in. Closed-minded idiots that they are . . .

Point is music business is a business - it's about sales and minimal risk and it's always been that way. Big successful group subsidize the less commercial acts.

That's the problem with it. For once I am in agreement with you.

VERY cool. I am so glad to see the great response for this cd. The promotion for this album is like 10 times better than it was for Driving Rain. I guess because word spread like wildfire how great the tour was. And I suppose the ABC special didn't hurt either.

I'm glad the ABC special was a smash. I remember when U2 did a network T.V. special right before the "Popmart" tour. It tanked. This just proves once again Macca is the Man!!!
