Good for VW, well deserved for one of the best records of the year. Glad TWY did is doing well as well.

I Just Want To Sell Out My Funeral
Glad they put out such great numbers, where are the dudes saying they wouldn't outsell TSSF now?

wow TWY did 19k that's way more than Hits predicted! So happy for them.

Vampire Weekend wooo! That's higher than I was expecting. Considering Phoenix only sold around 50k, I'd say VW should be very very happy.

That total for BMTH seems really low... I guess the type of fans they have are more prone to illegally downloading. Sad but true.
That's great for TWY, album is fantastic.

Paramore has really dipped quickly... yikes.
12:35 PM on 05/22/13
makes me wonder how well the other singles will do. at the end of the day...probably the least catchiest song on the album. haha. scary.

I also still need to pick up the new Vampire Weekend. Can't believe I haven't done so yet.
Also, FOB needs to release Alone Together as a single. Perfect summer song.

Huh, didn't expect Marianas Trench to be so low.

Absolutely. I personally didn't think it was all that bad (definitely got better with repeat listens), but I think most of us were pretty spoiled with Wolfgang.
