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.

Makes that Bankrupt! release look even more like a flop IMO.

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.

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.
