Damn. #1 song on Billboard, and most likely #1 album next week.

Impressive.

Most likely? Billboard reported yesterday that first day sales were likely over 300,000 and the week should hit at least 700,000. I honestly don't pay as much attention to popular media anymore but I didn't get the impression there was as much interest surrounding this release as X&Y (which isn't to say it was going to fly under the radar) and as that album disappointed people you'd think that would also have an impact, but they played the media blitz right and it looks like it'll open to a very similar number. Whether it can sustain that with less potential singles (and tracks in general) than their last two remains to be seen. "Lost!" and "Strawberry Swing" being the two potential singles I can see at the moment, although they can radio edit the double tracks.

They're copying 1987 U2, with their #1 hit that is...and Eno as well.




Sooooooooo 1987.

Rob, here's a thought if I might, if you don't like Coldplay - and this is just my opinion here:

DON'T LISTEN TO THEM!!!!

Now I realize that this is a wild and crazy concept and all and given the fact that you have listened to an album by a band that you "hate" 11 times in a row now but really, if they make you that mad, turn off the radio. Listen to one of your U2 CDs, write in your journal, take up stamp collecting, go jogging with friends - DO SOMETHING OTHER THAN OBSESS OVER THIS!

Well, the artist currently at number 1, 'Lil Wayne, had huge numbers last week, and since I don't follow hip hop as much, I wasn't sure how much of a drop he'd have the following week, but most likely, Coldplay will top his second week numbers.

True, but like anything nowadays that will be frontloaded and no doubt fall hard this week.

I haven't bought it yet because I'm waiting until I get paid on Friday. Do you think I should spring for the actual CD instead of just buying it on iTunes? I'd have to do that extra hard step of uploading it to iTunes in that case.

YES.



I dunno, I'm of the mindset that if it's a band a like a lot, I get the actual cd.
