Cage The Elephant scored #2. It's kind of a bittersweet victory for these guys, cause even though #1 and #2 is impressive, their sales are still eh, which is far more important.

Dang. Too bad the last Anberlin record didn't come out this week. Could have been number 2.

I've noticed that Wal-Mart and other huge retailers have been downsizing their CD sections.

Damn. Not to rag on Cake, but I thought Cage the Elephant was gonna have number one and actually sell a bit more.
