LET'S GRID AGAIN!

A Graphically Sexy Look at Album and Single Sales, Radio Audience (Starring Your Favorite Acts)
Here 'tis: The latest in our series looking at how certain high-profile records and their singles are faring or are likely to fare—in convenient box form!

As you peer down this list, you'll note that the last seven albums are either just out this week or coming before the end of the year. Make a note of the first-week projections from their labels for some fun with numbers when each one charts, as you compare said estimates with the actual sales totals.

As for the projects in play, there's plenty of intriguing data to catch the eye of the discerning industry dweeb. Who, for example, would've guessed that Imagine DragonsNight Visions would be outselling Muse's 2nd Law? But check the respective audience cumes on their singles for some perspective. 

Enjoy pondering these numbers, and try not to imagine Marine General John Allen wearing Christmas ornaments on his nipples. Oh, now you can't not picture that? Darn.
