Weekly Album Sales Charts – Oct 27th

Very surprising week in my opinion.  Another country act steals the show from what some saw as a lock for #1 first week.

Sugarland claims the top spot with their new album, TheIncredible Machine, which debuts after selling a total of 207k.  That was beyond surprising to see them beat out Kings of Leon, who  ended up selling a disappointing 187k.  I don’t blame folks for not buying the album, very overrated in my opinion.

In all, there are seven newcomers to the Top 10, withElton John & Leon Russell #3, with 78k,  Rod Stewart debuting just behind it at #4 with 76k.  Lil’ Wayne is still in the Top 5, followed by  Glee CastRocky Horror Glee Show (#6), Shakira (#7) and Third Day (#10).  Eminem (#8) and Darius Rucker (#9) round out the Top 10.  My favorite currently The Black Keys made a big jump from #46 to #37.

Who cares really?  Next week Ms. Taylor Swift owns all.
