Here's hoping that Ill go Crazy if I dont go Crazy Tonight takes off....
Well, I think US numbers are around 6,000. What are the numbers for Germany, United Kingdom, and Canada?

I think Mediatraffic is totally biased and purposefully give lower sales report for U2.

With any two charts estimating sales, there will be some type of a difference. The difference here is only 382,000 in sales. But mediatraffic correctly still has NLOTH as the #1 album of the year, while the other chart does not. The most important thing is accurately determining how the album finishes vs other albums, not the precise units sold count.

Sorry, I disagree. I would rather have an accurate count of units sold (for NLOTH and other releases) than see U2 as #1 based on faulty information.

I'm not as worried about U2 being #1 for the year. I feel that if they are near the top, that's good enough. It shows that they are still popular worldwide and that their tour is not just a nostalgia act. People want new U2 while still enjoying old U2.

U2's biggest selling albums in the U.S. were not #1 in the U.S. (JT wasn't even in the Top 5!), but that does not diminish their popularity, their overall sales, or their impact in the music world. So again, being #1 isn't important, but having a proper estimate of total worldwide sales is.

I never said anything about being #1 based on faulty information. Remember, these are global sales figures and they are estimates since there is no such thing as global soundscan or global RIAA.

The point I was making is that the difference between whether an album has sold 3.2 million copies or 3.4 million copies is basicaly meaningless especially considering that these global figures are estimates.

This is NOT the US chart that is being discussed, it is the WORLDWIDE chart. Joshua Tree was the #1 selling album in 1987.(Also, Joshua Tree finished #6 on the Billboard chart which ended in November 1987, so Joshua Tree only had 6 months of sales on that chart, while Bon Jovi and Janet Jackson had a full year because their albums were released all the way back in 1986. The only album that actually had a definitive higher shipment figure in the United States during 1987 was Whitney Houston's Whitney which shipped 5 million copies as opposed to Joshua Tree's 4 million.)

Quote:

Again, I emphasized in my previous post that the sales estimate should be accurate enough to determine correct chart position, but whether the top 2 albums sold 200,000 more or 200,000 less than their year end totals was probably not that important especially since there is already a range of error probably that large given that these are estimates.

Well, in a couple of weeks Mediatraffic will also place Lady Gaga at the top of the chart. The thing that concerns most people here is that Mediatraffic seems to be underestimating NLOTH sales in a systematic fashion.
Other than common sense (based on how touring affects albums sales), we certainly don´t have strong evidence to back our impressions.
