U2: Access all areas - Music, Entertainment - Independent.ie
very interesting read:

----------
"(...)
Tuesday afternoon in Barcelona and it is very much, as Bono calls it, "first day back at school". Bono, the Edge, Paul McGuinness and U2's longtime friend and creative consultant Gavin Friday are seeing what Bono calls "the giant cactus" for the first time. No doubt the enormous space invader that sits in the middle of the stadium will become a familiar sight over the next year or two, part of the culture. But nothing can quite prepare you for the first time you see it. It's extraordinary. Later on, in darkness, I will see it do things I'm not even allowed tell you about. But the consensus is also that placing a circular stage, with no backdrop, towards the middle of the stadium will create more intimacy. It's easy to see how this blend of the space age and the intimate will lend itself to new U2 songs like the new album's title track No Line On The Horizon or Fez (Being Born).

No Line on the Horizon has been hailed by some as U2's best album ever and it has already sold five million copies. It is a return to the kind of European, experimental mood the band mined so successfully on Achtung Baby and Zooropa. It is also, you could imagine, their most overtly religious album since October. Magnificent is Bonanza meets the bible, Moment of Surrender is about religious epiphany (the theme of surrender pervades the album and indeed the new show) and even the hard-bitten journalism song Cedars of Lebanon seems to culminate in a question to God. This is perhaps surprising, given that U2 have tended to play down their religion in recent years, perhaps for fear of being labelled Christian Rock. (...)"

I understand that the 5mln copies sold, actualy means "left Universal factories", right?

Even producing five million by now would seem like too much, I think we had reports of 3 million shipped around the time of release so they're still being sold. I can't imagine more than 3.5 have been shipped at this point but you never know

The album has sold over 3 million by now so if initial shipment was 3.5 million they should be shipping additional copies in short. By the end of the year NLOTH will sell at least 4 million copies.
I agree that an initial shipment of 5 million copies seems a bit too much.

3 million was the intial shipment, although I think they screwed it up. I'm currently in Canada and every store I go to still has like 100 copies of the album around the place so they obviously expected more sales. But if that happened in some markets then obviously other markets were under supplied, so I think 3.5 million would be the shipped figure right now

Big fathers day increase in UK this week...up 16 to #76 with ~3.1k so ~68% increase on last week. Total is now 312,604 (still, just, 7th best selling artist album of year so far).

Men rool! On mother's day fucking Ronan Keating and Take That surge up the chart. For dad's it is U2. I remember when rock & roll used to be dance music... show me!

A tad disappointing though compared to Coldplay, they were behind U2 last week and are now 62 in the chart. Oh well an increase is an increase let's hope it stays top 100 next week

NLOTH comes in at #25 in the world with 40,300 copies sold on the "other" world chart, which puts it over 3,300,000 in sales since it's release.
