    It is a masterpiece.
    True but it was relesed almost 32 years ago and when that happened was Madonna ONLY and first GH album! Also times were different.

    Also got the period most people were changing from vinyl to CD (so many people end up buying vinyl in '90 and later the CD during the 90's).
    Also the fact that all songs were re-worked with Q-Sound was a big deal at the time (as far as I remember).
    Was also an album where almost every song have been a TOP 5 Hit in both US or UK during the past 7 years (and many even #01s).
    Also important it was Madonna only GH until 2001 and album sales all time high sales were from 1995 until 2003 (and her 2001 GH was a complement not having any of the htis that TIC had as well - and that remained until Celebration was release in 2009)

    I'm sure "Celebration" canibalized some sales from both TIC and GHV2 when released - still they did tried to make TIC a complementary album - not only the songs version were different with Q-Sound as "Rescue Me" became an exclusive hit of TIC. A TOP 10 in US and UK that was left out of "Celebration".

    FEL is a very different kind of GH album but true that the first CD does have many songs that are on TIC as well (9 to be exact) but again the versions are different and the album was remastered in 2022 so they do sound pretty different (at least using a good sound system).

    FEL was released in the streaming era, when album sales are at an all time low and where people can buy the digital songs they like best or just rent music to listen whenever they want only (streaming is a musical rental subscription).

    TIC is the best selling greatest hits by a solo artist and I'm pretty sure that it will retain that title for long.
    "Celebration" would have done worst if released later (due to sales decrease in the industry and streaming gainning power) and could have done better if released before.

      • From #37 to out of chart (Top 60) in Sweden, or #1-#35 in Australia are big drops, but expected…

        But #1-out in the Netherlands, damn, that definitely must be some kind of all time record.

            • The drops are expected, I guess. It was always going to be front loaded, based entirely on physical sales. As long as her debuts are high positions (and they pleasantly were) that’s all that matters nowadays - it adds nicely to her chart statistics, as we saw with the Billboard announcement of having a top ten album across five decades, or the UK announcement of gaining her 23rd top ten album etc.

              When a sales market is dead all you can focus on is legacy, and this legacy release does just that. I’m very happy with the outcome of the era, and pleasantly surprised at how much I’ve enjoyed the album itself - which is all that really matters in the end I guess.

                        Oh wow...1-out from an entire top 100 is...something for sure.

                          It already happened more than once in UK charts...

                          Was not ready to see Madonna do that anywhere in Europe with this release

                          • Would you prefer a drop from #4 - OUT like last Prince live album? That's what he had in the Dutch charts.

                            Again, this is normal nowadays, there were lots of drops from top 10 to "out of the top 100" in the Netherlands this year. Dozens of them. Lucky her she got the #1

                                      Billboard 200 is… well, a top 200.
                                      So they didn’t drop out of chart from #1.

                                      No #1-out of BB200 cases so far. Biggest drop is #2-out for Lionel Richie in 2019.

                                      • My sources tell me that the album was sold out in Netherlands so no stock = nothing to sell and that’s why it dropped to #100, it will come back next week, stay tuned.

                                            • So happy with the UK results!!!

                                              It's good it didn't drop that much in both biggest markets: UK and Germany.

                                                Hopefully can have a similar result in France (TOP 20 on 2nd Week).

                                                Was expecting a little higher in UK (about 4k sales but 3.5k is still good for 2nd week).

                                                  That never happened before!
                                                  Stock of Madonna albums was never an issue that big before... why is this happening?

                                                  Who did the stock predictions and stock managment for her in Netherlands?

                                                  Those persons deserve a slap!

                                                  Hopefully they are still selling the album online (and will deliver all next week).

                                                  • Pure/physical sales were stellar, the streaming stats though.

                                                    But I do think it still won't stay on the charts too long. Not good at predictions, but I give it three-five weeks before it leaves some other charts, UK included.
