Data collector – Biggest CSPC Albums of the 2000s

https://flic.kr/p/96jcVK

Some months ago, a ranking about the biggest albums of the 2010s have been added to the Data Collector. It is now time to look at the 2000s and remember which albums have crushed the charts during this period. Do your favorite album ranked well? You will find the answer in the list below!

The albums ranked here have been released from January 1, 2000 to December 31, 2009. The figures are given in EAS (equivalent album sales).

Please keep in mind that some albums haven’t been studied so far, e.g. Evanescence‘s Fallen, James Blunt‘s Back to Bedlam or 50 Cent‘s Get Rich Or Die Tryin’. All figures reflect the value as collected at the time of the artist’s respective articles.

A lot of lists like this one are available in the Data Collector, so feel free to read them to gauge how your favorite artist charts within it.

Last thing, the list about the biggest albums of the 2010s did include 50 albums. It is now extended to 100!

Hi Anthony,

When’s the list for the 90s. Just very, very excited.. 🙂

SkkyWill

CSPC only for sudio albums and singles

RLAAMJR.

I know that the list is just for studio albums only that’s why I asked and i wanted to know the answer.

Ryan

CSPC can’t be done for “1” because the album sales are assigned to the parent studio release. In pure album sales of course “1” would be ahead of TFM, as would other albums released in the early 2000s that sold 20M+ copies.

RLAAMJR.

Is Gaga’s album still #1 if we include 1 album by The Beatles? just wanna know.

SkkyWill

Thank you! I cant wait to read other decades’ lists

RLAAMJR.

I didnt know Gaga’s first album was really huge.

Excited for the 90s list. 🙂

Rell

Thank you ! Obviously, some huge records are missing : Shaggy’s “Hot shot”, Nelly’s “Nellyville”, Josh Groban’s albums, Kelly Clarkson’s “Breakaway”… Shaggy would make an interesting CSPC article : he’s just released a duet album with Sting (which would also be quite good to read about), “Boombastic” and “Hot shot” were truly big and he’s had a string of hits, mainly in Europe and, most probably in Jamaica.

Ali

Go Britney with 4 entries! 🙂

Fantastic, MJD! You’ve built a great team!

I’d love to see your analysis of ELVIS (S’ il vous plaît).

AW

Dan

Thanks Anthony, love those lists!

Nathan
