In the absence of a steady-selling blockbuster title like Adele’s “21? or Michael Buble’s “Christmas,” 2012's holiday music sales were down compared to last year.

Comparing weeks 46-51 of the 2013 SoundScan calendar year (Nov. 12 – Dec. 23) with the same period last year, unit sales were down 10% to 54.9 million in 2012, versus the 61 million copies scanned last year. Within that, digital album sales were up 5.3% to nearly 15 million units, from 14.2 million last year, while CD sales are down 15.4% to 39 million units from 46.1 million copies in 2011.

Some may find a little solace in the fact that last year’s 51st week included Dec. 24 — one of the biggest shopping days of the year — and this year’s SoundScan calendar did not, which should produce a larger 52nd week than last year’s. But will that be big enough to make up this year’s shortfall? If other factors are an indicator, the answer is: not likely.

For example, last year, Drake’s “Take Care,” Michael Buble’s “Christmas,” Nickelback’s “Here And Now;” the Black Keys’ “El Camino,” Adele’s “21,” Young Jeezy’s “TM 103: Hustler Ambition” and Justin Bieber’s “Under The Mistletoe” produced weekly sales of over 200,000 units 12 different times during the holiday, including three weeks in which the Buble title produced sales of over 400,000 units and one week where the Drake title did over 600,000 units.

In contrast, this year albums exceeding 200,000 units in weekly sales happened just four times: One Direction’s “Take Me Home,” which scored 540,000 units, Taylor Swift’s “Red,” which topped the 200,000 unit mark twice during the holiday selling season and Rihanna’s “Unapologetic,” which sold 238,000 the week of Black Friday.

Another disconcerting sign: 12.7 million units scanned during the week ended Dec. 23 was the biggest album sales week for the holidays — down from 15 million units last year. Meanwhile, the biggest week last year for digital-track sales was 38.2 million units, versus 25.5 million units this year, a 33% drop.

If it weren’t for week 51, track sales would have been up 5.2% for weeks 46-50, but with week 51 thrown into the mix, track downloads are down 4.8% to 139.8 million units from 146.9 million units so far into the holiday selling season.

But some music merchandisers say business wasn’t bad – if you weren’t dependent on music. Newbury Comics, which has moved heavily into fashion merchandise, saw this year’s holiday selling season sales up over last year thanks to its inventory shift, reports chain director of purchasing Carl Mello.

In California, Super D’s CD online sales and online fulfillment business experienced double digit growth according to VP of retail sales Tim Hinsley, but VP of wholesale sales Bobby Miranda says his accounts are reporting that sales were okay. “Some were up a little, and some were down a little,” he reports. “Retail saw a last minute rush.”

However, “there weren’t a lot of releases that made an impact,” Miranda says. “There wasn’t a blockbuster release that sold throughout,” although he noted that Taylor Swift’s “Red,” kept “buzzing.”

Likewise, Newbury Comic’s Mello notes that “Red,” was the best performing title, but when compared to Adele and Buble last year, “you have a whole lot of 200K deltas to make up.”

Still, he adds that “a lot of albums that did what you hoped,” he added, including Bruno Mars’ (“Unorthodox Jukebox”), Alicia Keys (“Girl On Fire”), Mumford & Sons (“Babel”) and Pink’s (“Truth About Love”). “We also had a bunch of new Led Zeppelin (“Celebration Day” DVD) and Beatles (vinyl versions of their catalog) items to sell, which worked out well.

However, “At the end of the day, there was a lot of decent records, but with less demand.”

WEEK 51

albums selling over 2,000,000 - this year - 2 / last year - 3
albums selling over 1,000,000 - this year - 9 / last year - 11
albums selling over 500,000 - this year - 40 / last year - 45
albums selling over 250,000 - this year - 114 / last year - 128
total albums sales - this year - 306.19m (-5.2%)/ last year - 322.86m

Amazing - just 1 week to go before the year end and YTD sales show the biggest year-on-year decline at -5.2% - before this week the highest was -4.8% back in mid-September. Week 51 sales were 12.8m, 16% below 2011's 15.1m.

It would be nice if Adele's "21" gets enough sales in week 52 to pass the 4.4 million mark, though it has already sold more than any of the year-end #1 albums between 2006 & 2010. As far as I can tell it's only the second time in the SoundScan era an album has topped the year-to-date chart for all 52 weeks of the year, the other being "The Bodyguard" back in 1993. In 1998 another soundtrack "Titanic" moved to the top of the YTD chart in week 4 and remained there for the rest of the year, and in 2009 Taylor Swift's "Fearless" was the YTD #1 for weeks 1 to 33 and weeks 45 to 52 losing the lead for 11 weeks to Michael Jackson's "Number Ones".

It's likely One Direction's "Take Me Home" will sell enough in the final week of the year to move past Justin Bieber's "Believe" to the #5 slot in the year-end chart, giving them 2 titles in the top 5, a first in the SoundScan era. It would also mean 4 of the top 5 albums are from UK artists - another first. It will also be the first year that country albums (as classified by Billboard) take 50% of the places in the year-end top 10 albums.

New peaks in the top 50 of the list this week for: Rod Stewart #15, The Lumineers #24, Michael Buble #28, Little Big Town #31, Kendrick Lamar #35, and all new to the top half of the list: Rihanna #44, Phillip Phillips #46 & Now 44 #47. There are 3 new entries this week: Bruno Mars' "Unorthodox Jukebox" #71, Casting Crowns "Come To The Well" #97 & Led Zeppelin's "Celebration Day" #100. If SoundScan's official year-end chart excludes christian outlet sales as the YTD chart that leaked a couple of weeks back did, the Casting Crowns album would not be in the top 100 - in fact it would not even be in the top 200.

Key: Albums in blue are 2012 releases, albums in green are catalog.

I must say, these charts really show you how the singles market has really grown since 2005. I mean the market for singles in 2005 compared to 2012 is totally different.

The problem for the music industry is that each single sold is only about 99 cents or $1 dollar, many you need to sell at least TEN singles to equal the sell of one album.

Another problem is that the fan who only spends $2 dollars on an artist for two songs they like is highly unlikely to buy any of the artist albums, let alone merchandise like t-shirts and certainly not a $50 dollar ticket to see the artist in concert.

Way, way underestimated - we now know JM sold 524,336 as week 51, probably but not definitely more than Madge.

Very Impressive! When Thriller was huge, Michael Jackson was not able to do that with the "Off The Wall" album.

^The music industry was completely different back then.

You cannot compare 1983 to 2011/21012.
