Now they only need to sell 476,875 more copies to go gold in the US!!
Haven't the Europeans heard of iTunes!

I agree completely. I just don't understand that deal. It really shot them in the foot by being off of the worlds largest music seller for a month...

Well, it didn't shoot them in the foot when they were exclusively on the world's largest music seller for 5 weeks.

That's the trade-off I guess.
BTW, for digital sales you can still go to Amazon.

I think U2 need to make a visit to Singapore. #2 album even though it was free and they've never played there?

I remember Popmart was supposed to go to Singapore but in the end it wasn't feasible. Now that they're doing an arena tour maybe they can hit some of those East Asian countries.

I like this number more than HITS. First, it's larger. Second, the album is in the Top 10.

I am curious, given the lower first week sales, if SOI holds up well during the holidays. That is, will this be a CD people buy as a gift or not?

Also interesting:
Sales this week: 28,122
Sales last week: 439 (street date violations)
Total sales the past 2 weeks: 28,561

That still leaves a gap of 260 copies. This is most likely the # of the advance vinyl pressing copies put on sale at Amoeba & Looney Tunes in late September.

In Italy they already obtained the Disco D'Oro certification, that is, they sold more than 25'000 copies in its first week. Of course it has been heavily downloaded on Itunes in Italy, but we do love to have our phisical copy at home. It just makes more beautiful our cd storage case, how romantic are we huh?

At lease U2 are charting. Pre-SoI, they were nowhere to be seen.

I don't think this is correct. I would look out for an updated chart. There is NO way that SOI isn't charting above those. Is this a digital download chart or something? because Songs of Innocence + is still a pre-order on iTunes. So it shouldn't even be charting.

AAAAAAAAAHHHH

Sorry, I missed that the first time I looked at your post.

Yeah, iTunes is not selling SOI yet. So this chart will not show it, because its only iTunes.

BUT, is there another source like US has Billboard, that Chile has to chart album sales each week?
I've googled a bit without much luck.
