What I am looking at is overall albums, in all formats - streaming, LPS, CD, everything and they are at 3,371 or something like that. Yes, on LPs they are in the 100s, but what % of total album sales are LPs? Its very small. So, let's not equate LPs as being in the top 100 or top 10 of overall sales (when it peaked). Apples and oranges. #math

You do not know what you are talking about. This is the same argument from weeks ago.

You are only looking at Streaming. It is NOT "all formats".

The other link combines CD's and LP's...and NOT streaming. That is why there are two charts. It is the chart that should be looked at....not the STREAMING only chart.

The reason it says "Paid" is because as a PRIME member, you can listen to some albums for free.

#178 in CDs & Vinyl
#96 in CDs & Vinyl > Rock
#169 in CDs & Vinyl > Pop

#810 Paid in Albums

Can't verify this because I do not have a Soundscan account. They are kinda posting a weekly count here. It looks like it started at 10,000 the first week and is now around 1500 every week:

For comparison, Cheap Trick's new album is now at #1347 on Amazon. Also ahead of the new Alice Cooper on iTunes which is only a couple weeks old. The Mission vinyl is now in its 3rd pressing. Pretty darn good!


Well done Styx.It is indeed an excellent album. :D


Still hanging around the same spots on the charts again this week. Where others like Buckingham/Mcvie, Roger Waters', and Alice Cooper have dropped.
