Yeah, at this point it's kind of like the album that never was. Loved by most big fans, but given no real thought by many outside of the core fan base.

Just knowing EBW and The Troubles will go...

SOI sells 38k this past week worldwide. This brings the total to 537,000

It's held pretty steady the last 4 weeks or so. Anyone think the tour announcement will boost next couple weeks numbers? ...

While this is great and all, that SOI+ is at number 26, it really just shows how badly thought out this whole release was.

Apple should be selling the ENTIRE deluxe edition album and charging...

They really are doing quite well on the world charts. If you look at others, like Garth brooks selling 136k in his first week! Nick Jonas selling 41k in his first week!!! That is really really low....

SOI+ (whatever that is) is floating around the top 10 on iTunes, actually outselling the Foo's. It will be interesting to see how this is charted by Billboard. Oh the crazy mixed up, and now...

I also forgot that this iTunes/U2 deal was stupid in many ways.
One of those ways is that they are not selling the deluxe version, they are only selling the +...

So no SOI in the top 50 in the US this week. General surge in sales across the board.
Will be interesting to see if the week of Fallon and the availability of it to buy on iTunes will bring it...

I agree somewhat with the apathy statement. But also think that it is most likely far outweighed by the casual, fairweather U2 fan, who might own, JT, or ATYCLB, but nothing else. They might give...

U2 slips to number 4 on the World Album Charts in it's third week, with sales of 101k.

Not too shabby for a free album. :)

I agree there are incentives, and I take back that I wouldn't do it for ANY other band. New Pornographers, Ryan Adams, The National are a few that I would buy the physical release just for sound...

I do think this would have been crazy. They did it with Tom Petty and with Madonna. It got Petty his first number one album ever.

Can you imagine if U2 gave away an album with a ticket...

Yeah, 500k is out of the question for now. But, asking if its on course to be their lowest selling album ever doesn't really make much sense. I mean, that's kind of obvious when you give away the...

Hey Cosmo, can you find the sales numbers for the first couple weeks for NLOTH for France, Italy, Spain, Portugal and maybe Netherlands and compare them to SOI's performance?

It's pretty amazing...

I see your point. You may be right, but they have been a Letterman staple for years now. I think they have mutual respect for eachother.

That said, I think if they went on Fallon (or is it...

U2 had a MUCH shorter pre-order time than these other artists who release in a more traditional way.
