Quantcast
Also debuting on next week's chart is the Dave Matthews Band's "Live in Chicago at the United Center" (RCA), which should clear the 150k threshold, making it an easy Top 10 and a possible Top 5 contender.
ONE-DAY SALES: DMX AND INCUBUS COME CALLING
"Great Depression" Gets Manic, "Morning View" Becomes Electric
According to early reports from national accounts, Island Def Jam's DMX and Immortal/Epic's Incubus are busting some serious pumpkinheads.

But that's cool, because in this case it's all treat and no trick: DMX's Great Depression is shaping up to sell 500k or better, while the Inc's Morning View looks likely to move upwards of 300k units.

That's a pretty big popcorn ball, Spiderman.

Obviously, the rapper/actor and the nu-metal elitists will come in #1 and #2 on next week's chart, which this week is topped by the God Bless America benefit tribute (Columbia), Enya's Day Without Rain (Reprise) and Ozzy Osbourne's Down to Earth (Epic). Also debuting on next week's chart is the Dave Matthews Band's Live in Chicago at the United Center (RCA), which should clear the 150k threshold, making it an easy Top 10 and a possible Top 5 contender.

Of course, the Ozzies, Enyas and Americas of the world aren't going to just sit idly by in the coming days, and their presence will still be felt on next week's chart, but the newcomers are coming on strong and will shake things up significantly.

So, you got your rap, your nu-metal, your all-American, your ethereal new-age inspirational and your old-metal all selling big for Halloween. It's like getting nothing but candy bars in your sack, without any of that granola crap that’s some twisted hippie mom's idea of a good time.

We, of course, will get a stone. But at least we'll be stoned, so even that works out okay.
