Week 4

Hello,

The album has now been out for a month and the busy holiday season is starting, so it's interesting to see if U2's Best Of... can stay in the upper echelons. As tonight (5 December) is an important holiday in the Netherlands (the feast of Saint Nicholas, or more popular Santa Claus) there should have been a lot of shopping last week (and of course also this week, but we won't see those results until next week). As usual, the charts are courtesy of Mega Top 100 .
In its fourth week week the album drop again, however a #4 position is still very well. Last week the album was #3 so the drop is really minor. The top three are all albums which are now in their second week, so there is definately a rush to buy just-released albums. There is a small asterisk to U2's position as the 2 versions are counted together.
Here is the chart run for The Best Of 1990-2000 (16-11-02):
1-1-3-4

There are no other U2 albums on the chart. I'd expected that the first Best Of... would have re-entered the chart, but that's not the case. I do know that now also the 2CD version has been re-released in the Netherlands.

On the singles chart the news is a bit less positive. In its sixth week Electrical Storm drops nine places to #35.
Here is the chart run for the single (2-11-02):
4-4-10-16-26-35

There are no other U2 singles on the chart. The #1 song is for a fifth week Nelly & Kelly with Dilemma.

C ya!

Marty

Best Of 90s drops down from #2 to #3 in the Aria charts with John Farnham climbing up to #1 due to a number of TV documentaries aired over the last week or so. Avril Lavigne has sneaked up in front of U2 to the #2 spot.
In U2's 4th week, they're still in the Top 3, holding out artists such as Jennifer Lopez, Shania Twain, and the 8 Mile Soundtrack.

God Bless.

U.S. SoundScan Numbers

Attached are the Week 4 U.S. SoundScan numbers for the "Best Of" Special CD set (Week 3 for the single CD version). Whether the CBS special had any impact on sales is difficult to ascertain - I credit the big jump (especially for the single CD version) to the Thanksgiving holiday and the start of the holiday shopping season.

Combined, the two versions of the "Best Of" sold about 86,000 copies last week, which would have been enough for #29 on the charts.

The SoundScan report also shows last week's sales (Week 3 for the special "Best Of" and Week 2 for the single CD "Best Of"). I believe the special set is dropping in sales mostly because it was just a promotional set - and because it is more costly.

Lastly, both formats (DVD and VHS) of U2's video "Elevation" received a boost in sales last week. They both sold about 900 copies last week, but jumped to about 1300 copies this week!

So, all things considered, last week was a very strong week for U2 in terms of sales.

Thanks Dr. Who for bringing in the Statistics. I did a little update in the Catalog Status thread for ATYCLB with them.

Thanks STING2!

One thing that should be stressed is the sales over chart positions. Note that BOTH versions of the "Best Of" sold much more than the prior week. The b-sides version sold 5K more copies, yet dropped by 13 positions on the charts! The single CD version nearly doubled in sales, yet it only rose 12 spots!

Also, keep in mind that the two sets are competing with each other to some extent. Therefore, I think it's best to combine both when looking at how well these CDs are doing. That is, if one just examines the b-sides format, it may appear sales are plummeting. But keep in mind, that was supposed to be a one-week special! The single CD version is nicely picking up the slightly lower sales of the b-sides format. In fact, the way these two albums are behaving on the charts is similar to what the 80's "Best Of" did a few years back. So all is good.

For the many Pearl Jam fanatics like myself:

Week One : Riot Act debuts at No. 5 with 165,991 copies sold.
Week Two: Riot Act drops to No. 36 with 47,187 copies sold.
Week Three: Riot Act drops to No. 67 with 33,869 copies sold.

Total Amount of Units Sold in The United States: 247,047

Amount Needed to Be Certified Gold: 252,953 (Of course, the certifications are measured simply by the amount that have been sold to stores. Considering that most record stores still have about half their supply of Riot Act albums, it's probably already passed the 500,000 mark.)

I'm actually starting to doubt that about RIOT ACT now. Realize that Binarual sold 718,000. Record stores and retailers order copies of RIOT ACT based on Binaural performance. Based on that I don't think they would have ordered over 500,000 copies of RIOT ACT before it was released. RIAA rules allow an album to be certified 30 days after it is release for Gold, Platinum, or Multi-Platinum. We should know next week if this was the case or not. I actually think they are going to have to sell another 250,000 copies before RIOT ACT gets a Gold Certification. Will see where it stands after the Christmas season, but there is a slight chance it won't get a Gold certification now that its dropped to 33,000 in sales despite Christmas season. You'll see what I mean if it drops to 10,000 a week in the next 4 weeks. But there is the tour next summer which might help some.

The Cranberries album before last only went Gold. The next one dropped even faster only staying on the Billboard 200 for four weeks. Pearl Jam is kind of in a downward trend themselves, hopefully they can turn it around. Its strange where this band is popularity wise in the USA considering where they were in November 1993 when VS. was at that point the Soundscan champ of first week sales(Soundscan at the time only tracked 75% of sales, so that first week was more like 1.3 million instead of 900,000). It will be interesting how the tour does this summer. The One for Yield was a complete sellout everywhere because the band had not properly toured for many years and the low ticket price. Several shows on Binaural though did not sellout, although Philadelphia still sold out both of its shows, 25,000 people per night. I wonder if they will continue to play in the sheds mainly this summer?

Pearl Jam still isn't sure about their US Tour from what I've heard, although I haven't checked the official site in about a month for some news. In a really cool Billboard interview, the band stated that they may be touring in some parts playing small theaters with songs mostly from Riot Act. Not sure if they will do this, but I'm sure they'll have their typical 40-50 date summer tour in 2003.

As for the album, I must say that there were a LOT of copies left over at some record stores that I went to recently. Don't forget that the new album's sales aren't too far below those that Binaural began with. Binaural was certified Gold after the month long waiting period, so you are correct that we'll know in a week or two whether or not it has passed the half million mark.

EDIT: GOLDEN! (It's at No. 90 with the Gold symbol)

The only question now is will it attain the 718,000 copies that Binaural sold.

I'd really have to doubt that. This new album hasn't really attracted anyone besides the band's fan base, so it's inevitable that it will sell less. In fact, Yield is the band's only album to sell more than its predecessor. Even then, it's starting to get passed up by No Code now since a lot of new fans seem to prefer it and Binaural over Yield for whatever reason.
