  • Voyage's decline in Germany probably helped by it is a value based chart.

    • Right, but it looks like, as if only the standard CD issue holds the flag up right now.

        There wasn't a great deal of promotion for Voyage once it was released. I think too much focus on Social Media rather than Mainstream TV or Radio.

        Benny and Bjorn didn't do much and Frida only that Radio 2 interview. Agnetha did nothing. ABBA or at least Benny and Benny could have done a bit more.

        i would like another single soon, to coincide with a probable BRITS win; it could help Voyage. But it seems all focus will be on the shows.

        I'm not sure if there will be a deluxe edition. Personally, I don't like this practice of adding tracks so soon after a release.
        The formula is simple: Little expense, big yields!

        It was clear from the beginning: The Ladies (except the mentioned radio appearance of Frida) did their jobs in the studios and that's it! B&B did their promo-stuff around the first single- and then the album-release. The official videos didn't cost that much, I guess.

        Btw: yesterday I saw a tram (light rail, street car) in Berlin/Germany full of advertising for Voyage on the outside.

        Voyage is still a gift!

        • Bit more expense, even bigger yield!

            This formula sounds better!

              • Voyage is really plummeting down the UK charts. Two weeks ago #4 and now clings on to Top 20.

                For the first 9 weeks the Official Chart and Sales Chart pretty similar. In a couple of weeks or so #4 in Main #3 in Sales or #3 in Main #2 in Sales.

                The past 2 weeks there has been a clear divergence.

                Voyage's chart placing is down to sales. Gold's is more streaming based.

                • So UK is the next country, where GOLD is higher placed than Voyage. Well, I'm happy for GOLD, but a drop from 10 to 20 for Voyage is close to harsh.

                  The BRITS aren't too far away. Ok, ABBA haven't won yet and I don't believe that the possible win leads automatically to 30k a week again. But a little arrow up wouldn't be bad.

                  • Let's wait for the sales figures. Something between The Lumineers and Temperance Movement.

                      • Voyage sales figures: 3,165

                        Total now around 415k.

                        GOLD something between 3,270 (#18 The Lumineers) and Voyage's 3,165.

                            • So we will hardly know if it will ever get a certification award. There's no searchable data-base on the aria-site, or?

                                There is a site with lists of yearly accreditations but it hasn't been updated for 6 months:

                                    • "Of the 70s" NOT "in the 70s"
                                      Mull of Kinytre best seller IN 70s, Bohemian Rapsody best seller FROM 70s.

                                      I'm not sure what purpose these programmes serve. Factually often incorrect. And Best Sellers then often greeted with "what"? now.

                                        At least against the trend. And 371 sold copies are 371 copies more than zero.

                                            OCC reported 1.56 million pure sales, though…

                                            I guess the difference comes from overall sales vs. post 1992 re-release only, maybe?
