Top album

This top album ranking is taking into account all formats.

Remember to use the searching, filtering, and sorting options to make the most out of the ranking, like top sellers per year or per decade!

Please keep in mind that some artists are missing, because their analysis has not been done yet. Here is the complete list of covered artists.

Top albums – Equivalent album sales (EAS)

How it works

The table above shows the best-selling albums ever using the following ratios:

  • Studio album: sales of the original album (ratio 1/1)
  • Other LPs: sales of compilations generated thanks to the album (ratio 1/1)
  • Physical singles: sales of physical singles from the album (added to CSPC total with a ratio 3/10 for 2-tracks, 5/10 for EPs and Maxis)
  • Digital singles: sales of digital singles from the album (ratio 1.5/10 for CSPC total)
  • Streaming: EAS of all the album tracks (ratio 1/1500 for Audio stream and 1/6750 for Video stream)

Sales figures reflect the value as collected at the time of the artist’s respective articles while streams are updated daily. Albums from unstudied artists which gained significant streams are listed but miss the sales component.
