Thanks, REBEL SON. Even though "Arrival" would still be A-OK in my books if it fell off the charts entirely, it's kinda fun to watch what happens to it week after week. This is proving to be more exciting than I thought. At first, I thought "Arrival" was going to make a reasonably solid debut, then drop clean off the charts after 3 or 4 weeks. (This is the typical course for marquee acts whose albums are selling on the strength of their name/past without any radio or MTV.) Well, it's movement has been 56-102-110-112 in four weeks and, as you can see, the drops seem to be getting smaller. At this rate, it could level off and then rebound into the top half of the chart! I'm figuring the DirectTV free concert from Las Vegas that was played in April is still influencing sales. The Soundscan data is always older than the issue date. (That's why in January, you still see Christmas titles on the Billboard charts!)

I'll keep checking in on Arrival until 1. it falls off the chart 2. i go on vacation 3. coco dispatches a large axe-wielding, kilt-wearing Scotsman to my humble abode to implore that I stop, or else deal with the sudden ventilation that occurs when an sharp metal cutting device is thrust into your door Jack Nicholson-style!!!

Heeere's Journey, er, Johnny!!!!


NP: the sound of my gut uneasily churning after too many gin martinis last night
