        • Nice to see a gold certification for Voyage in Poland.

          It's reminder though that sales in most countries are very low.

          It would be interesting to see Netherlands, Belgium and Switzerland. Austria is platinum on 15k. If it was double platinum I think it would have been certified.

          • Measured by its chart run in Poland I've expected the gold certification not that fast there.

            There's enough space for more surprises like that!

                  • Sales may be low in Australia, but I would hope that the #10 album of the year is at the very least eligible for Gold!

                    • Unfortunately the aria annual album charts-site is out of order temporarily. When it works again we might check the albums behind Voyage for 2021 releases and certifications. The #9 on the list (The Weekend) has none so far.

                        Voulez-Vous (album) - GOLD (10k units).


                        Obviously this is only for sales in the last years.

                        • I assume most of the Aria year end top 10 except Ed and Adele have been around for much longer than Voyage which was released at the years end.?? Besides it got to no 1 and that’s what will be remembered. People won’t say oh it went gold .. they will say oh it was a no1 album . If it only got to no2 it would have been called a flop for Abba even if it had Gold cert . That goes for all territories I think except the US WHERE 2 was a big achievement ..

                          • If the year end ranking is strictly based upon sales Voyage is Gold. #13 is Happier Than Ever, released in June 2021, and it got Gold

                              I agree! Due to the one Billboard issue from the end of July 1979, ABBA sold 1,2 million records (and 250k singles) in Denmark. By then there were 6 studio albums plus at least one GH-album available. Probably one or two local compilations more. I can't imagine that all these albums sold an average of 150k-200k and VV close to nothing.

                              • Australia - Billie Ellish album is #17 in Yesr End Chart and certified gold. So I expect Voyage to be nearer 40k.

                                Before Voyage was relessed I said on here I expected its sales to be more like More Gold's ie 2.5m - 3.0m. One person here thought that was toio low. Another person disagreed when I said it's Australian sales were not going to be great in Australia.

                                That said it has done better than I expected in the UK or Germany. It's global sales may be more like More Gold but the distribution of those sales more like The Visitors ie European centred.

                                We'll see tomorrow if Voyage can cling on to Top 5 placings of the key ABBA markets of UK, Germany, Sweden, Netherlands.

                                I am glad it got a very high US chart podition even if its sales, predictably aren't great.

                                I wonder if there will be a revival around the time of the show. If so any revival will probably be stronger in the UK as it is in London and will wield lots of publicity - and hopefully good revieews

                                Voyage in terms of sales has been a huge success - in Europe. It is like the end of ABBA's career.

                                          You're right! Confused it with her current position.

                                            Not that bad at all! Beside a question mark concerning the year end compiling in Denmark it's an impressive achievement.

                                            • Have you got a link for Swedish Year End #1 I suspect it is though.

                                              And US and Canadian year end are Pure Sales, not justPhysicsl sales - so include downloads.
