Is there any other kind?
You know what I mean...
Sorry - yes. 3 albums each achieving number 3! I hadn't read much of the thread before chipping in!

You live in a world of excess, where more is more and less is much less

96% of the album 'sales' of the number one album were through streaming.Image

Yep, the game is rigged. The boys sold more physical units than Eminem and J Hus and yet thanks to labels paying off amazon and other streamers the boys were robbed of their no.1. Almost as bad as when Yes was robbed of the top spot because they failed to count several thousand copies.
So J Hus' fans are just cheapskates who refuse to buy his music. Screw the music industry.

It's from the last week. Update in about 3 minutes. ;)
A blues would be in B flat, pain defining wisdom,
but the soul is in the high hat, programmed in the system.

The charts don't appear to be properly updated yet.
Endless thoughts & questions keep me awake

Ho hum ... no Top Spot for Hotspot then

The lines in Hoping for a miracle document the journey sadly


Hoping for a miracle
A miraculous career
....
In the expectation
you’d be number one
...
No thought of surrender
No thought of surrender
...
Hello, hello
Is anybody out there?
....
Hoping for a miracle
Been waiting too long



Think I need a hug
you could say conventional ... and I could claim intentional

They worked hard for this one, and the timing of the release suggests they really were aiming for #1.

It’s a tall ask with today’s rules and an, er, aging fan base.

Measuring the value of art and creativity on the basis of how many people pay money for it, is a hiding to nothing.
Yea, chart rules have changed. Yes, people listen differently and some don't get physical products.
I don't care, I love most of the album, PSB bring me joy.
