Really disappointed Mayer didn't get the top spot. Great album.

Fuck Luke Bryan. Man, I swear. Every modern country artist sounds EXACTLY the same! Luke Bryan, Kenny Chesney, Dierks Bentley, Toby Keith. What is the difference between all these hacks?

SR&R is a safe bet for gold. My Songs might not reach 3x platinum. I'm curious to see how The Phoenix is doing, though.

Considering the arena tour already has four sold out dates, this is one of the best comebacks in recent music history. FOB should be proud of themselves.

I'm surprised FOB has more than doubled Macklemore.

I feel the same way about hip hop.

Not even close. The Heist is the album not a single. Save Rock and Roll has less than a quarter of the sales of it. Than for singles Thrift Shop has sold 6 million copies compared to My Songs with 2 million

I was with my mom the other day and a Luke Bryan song came on the radio (she listens to Country) and I had to change it, it was down right horrible.

Born Of Osiris did really well... Surprisingly well. I figured they'd only sell 6 or 7k... Or have they done this well before?
