but will people still care by then? I only say she probably won't sell well since her Voice compilation is barely over 40k right now and that was released right after she won. figured it woulda sold more by now.


I don't think that number is very telling. Since the Voice counts iTunes downloads as votes, you have to assume that LOTS of her fans already owned all of the songs on the compilation. A bunch of her covers were in the Top 10 on iTunes during the voting periods.

Still semi decent considering it was self released and from what I saw, little to no promotion

If you promote the idea of a "golden ticket" more people will buy the album. How much do you think SWS would have sold if they didn't have it?

Expected a little more from Portugal. The Man. I have a feeling they'll get huge with this album or their next. Last time Danger Mouse worked with a indie rock band it was The Black Keys and look at them now.

They also had a trending topic a couple days ago. Pretty surprised their fanbase is still that dedicated.

According to hits, The Maine debuted at 35, so even if their numbers aren't amazing, it's good to see them back in the top 50, especially with such a good album. Anarbor is disappointing, I really thought they were bigger than 700 copies. QOTSA is awesome, especially since they sold 11,000 more than predicted.

To put it in perspective, Silverstein and Senses Fail sold 7,500 and 6,800 first week with a label behind them and way more promotion than The Maine. The Maine self released this with no promotion save for social networking. I think the debut is very impressive, that and they sell out every venue they play.

There has definitely been some promotion for it; in the past few months there have been full page ads in Alternative Press for the album. The point you're making doesn't change though, still a pretty impressive debut in my opinion too.

Ok, we'll see when she releases her album.

That's a 35% difference. Over 1/3rd more in the debut, all things considered, that's a definitely a big gap.

But for a brand new artist compared to a very established artist?

My point was, that same percent difference in album sales would still be over 100k...
