Comment: The Romeo Santos, which I expected big things from, went from #10 to #56, but the real story here is Arcade Fire, in a weak week with a weak 100K equivalency units. The reviews were brutal but I thought it was a fine album, if only for “Creature Comforts” though not only for “Creature Comforts”. Remember the rock nyc credo, from M.I.A. to Maria Taylor to AF: if Pitchfork hate you, you can’t be all bad.
