It was number 7 the day it came out. Memories was/is on the top 200 singles on iTunes.

I forgot to check iTunes the week it came out. Was it on the top ten albums at all?

I heard on allthingsweezer it was projected to debut at 45-50,000 but I don't know what the actual figures turned out to be.
I too, am a collector of the real thing. Cds + vinyl. I treasure my old record collection. Digital just doesn't do it for me. Just another T-Rex I guess.

Whoa, that's kind of a downer. I personally cannot buy just single songs anymore. I have to have the albums. I have to have the whole picture. If that makes sense. I also prefer to have a hard copy of whatever it is and not just a digital download. I'm kind of a dinosaur when it comes to my music purchasing preferences I guess. I even prefer vinyl at this point to cds.

It won't matter, no one buys albums anymore. Like 50,000 first week is absolutely terrible, Maladroit sold 150,000 first week, Make Believe 250,000 and Red 130,000. That's why I think Weezer should stick to EPs.

They need a hit single to come off this record to make people go buy it.

It has sold 47, 845 copies including digital downloads and will debut at #6 on the Billboard 200. Very unfortunate.
i hate buying digital.
i know going to the "record store" is a foreign concept know-a-days but i prefer it. i like having the album, looking in the book and just owning a physical copy.

i know eventually everything will probably be digital, which is a bummer.
I totally agree.

i meant "now-a-days" by the way.

it's funny - my grandparents don't know how to use computers because they're at the age where they never were that much of a factor, it's an extremely distant concept to them, they're not senile or anything they just don't know computers. i feel like by the time i'm 40 my kids will look at me in this light.

I'm an album buyer. Gotta have the hard copy.
once i really got into weezer, which wasn't really that long ago (about 4 years) i bought all of the hard copies in one big order. definitely better to have a hard copy, and i feel like it supports the band more somehow.
same here.
