    So the albums were released in the German speaking countries today and THP is at #1 on iTunes in each of those countries. That's a good sign for sure but I'm not too optimistic for the US.

    Linkin Park released the better album, that's for sure.

    It was a big sudden drop. Meh. We'll have to wait and see how much LP and all sell when the album physically releases.

    I don't understand what the point of this post was?

    Not trying to hate, could you explain what you mean by posting both of these?

    Good thing we all have opinions because I disagree.

    Between Sam and Lana, Sam should get it. Ultraviolence for the most part is bland and uninspiring. Sam's vocals shine on this album, and IMO, rivals Adele.

    While I do enjoy Sam's album, I enjoy Lana's album more. The thing about Lana's vocals is what makes the album good. It has a very chill vibe which compliments the album to it's finest in my opinion.

    Not gonna lie, I expect this album to be a sloooooooow seller. It seems to be getting a really good critical reception so far though, which is a welcome change.

    Also the Lana album really does suck holy shit. It might grow on me the more I listen but jesus christ what a letdown.

    Both of them also dropped few places. Lana is at 8 whereas Sam is at 9th. LP is 19th

    -------------- ------------------ ---------------------

    Personally, I love a lot of songs by Lana. But I find it hard to even like any of the new singles she has released. BTD was a great album but I'm not digging what I've heard from this one.

    It seems LP will beat Lana and Sam in germany/austria/russia and japan.

    UK will be close. Lana is #2 in itunes and LP #3. We will see...

    I think Linkin Park is the strongest act in physical sales, compared to Lana and Sam.

    This is true. LP only beat M5 back in 2012 because they sold more physical CDs. Maroon 5 actually beat LP in Digital Albums chart while LP beat M5 in the Billboard 200.

    I have no doubt they win in foreign contries. In the US though, I still think Lana wins.

    Sam is number 1, Lana is number 2 and Linkin Park are 3rd on the itunes chart in US. All rose suddenly.
