It's number 7 now and it's gonna fall, it is barely selling now. And come on for U2 only hitting platinum in the UK and then completely fading is a huge underperformance

The only way to accurately judge how well an album does is how well it sells VS other albums in the SAME YEAR. Having one of the top 10 or top 20 selling albums of the year is NEVER "terrible" or a "huge underperformance".

Sadly, Jackson's passing created the "death as a career move" scenario. I'm sure all artists suffered drops this week on the U.K. charts.

The U.S. charts will show Jackson's albums on the catalog charts, but not the Top 200. This is because Billboard separates the two. So Jackson's death will not impact the Top 200. But I do expect any surge Jackson's death caused will be relatively short-lived.

As for U2, once their tour starts, I do expect the album to rise significantly on the charts. While the album only going Platinum is disappointing, not all U2 albums have been big hits in the U.K. Slow CD/album sales, the lack of a big hit song, the economy and just a change in musical tastes is making the market a challenge for U2 with this album. But the tour should help.

Michael Jackson currently holds the top 3 spots on hitsdaily, looks like he'll be topping the world chart this week by quite a bit

Look at the rise in chart position in Spain, from #40 upto # 12 and they havent even had a concert yet, i think it just proves that the tour does have an effect on album sales.

Not worldwide though. With global sales, NLOTH is still the best selling album of 2009 so far, regardless of what year the album was released in.

Even if it were to be the biggest seller of 2009, theres a fair few albums from late 2008 which would still have sold more in total.

But hey, if NLOTH were to remain biggest seller of 2009, i'd be over the moon
