Technicalities shouldn’t impact the meaning of charts and sales. Applying the CSPC will avoid them and bring the very first lists of Most Successful albums and artists rather than Best Selling lists. At last, albums highly popular but with sales spread over too many records like Rumours (Fleetwood Mac) won’t be unfairly overshadowed by albums that benefited from a studio albums-axed catalog management like IV (Led Zeppelin), Dark Side Of The Moon (Pink Floyd) or Black In Black (AC/DC).
To compile such a list requires an heavy amount of knowledge but also of time. It won’t be possible to put it out within’ a day. Instead, I’ll be posting battles-like articles, putting head to head albums supposedly comparable sales-wise and analyzing how much the CSPC impacts their results. Stay tuned!
