Actually, you're pretty close. Here's the downward spiral...

April 21- # 56
April 28- # 102
May 5- # 110
May 12- # 112
May 19- # 138

I think the smaller drops between April 28-May 12 can be attributed to the DirectTV free concert "Journey in Las Vegas" which was SO GOOD that it couldn't help but get folks into the record stores! Unfortunately, the latest 26-notch free-fall is Journey's first week on the Top 200 not to benefit from DirectTV influenced sales. Just a theory, but it makes sense. (Bear in mind that the charts are slightly behind and reflect actual Soundscan data two weeks prior to the issue date!)

At this rate, I'm guessing Journey will be in the # 170's by next issue. :(
