this happens when no high profile albums aren't coming out

What is a "high profile" album??

Something thats guaranteed to sell at least a hundred thousand copies in one week.

Nothing big came out that week,plus nobody is buying stuff after Christmas,because they don't have a lot of extra money after the big spending last month.

This is nothing big,its not even the lowest tally.

The problem is, nobody's buying albums anymore. It don't matter who the artist is. People have their Ipods and crap and they just want to load it up with singles that they hear on radio.

The Eagles sold over 7 million copies of Long Road Out Of Eden (2 Discs!) in 10 weeks! Not that bad, isn't it?

So what?? That means nothing. We are talking about the total decline in album sales over the past few years. The music industry as a ''WHOLE" is in trouble.

I never said that you're wrong. I just wanted to show that you still can sell (good) records if you have a strong and loyal fanbase. Most of the newer acts are only "in" for a short time, they come fast and disappear even faster. Alongside with the downloading - problem I think this is one of the main reasons people don't buy records anymore. They don't/can't build up a relation to the band. As you said, they hear sth. on radio and download it, but in most cases they don't care what band or artist it is.

Just look at older bands like The Eagles or AC/DC. They still sell many records, perhaps not as much as they sold in the 70s or 80s, but they still sell records. And they don't sell it, because older people (30+) are too dumb to download it...
