Slipknot Tops The Billboard 200: This Week in Music

October 30th, 2014 10:31am EDT
Slipknot Tops The Billboard 200: This Week in Music
As prognosticated, popular masked metal band Slipknot debut ‘at the penthouse’ on the Billboard 200 selling 132,000 copies of their latest album, .5: The Gray Chapter. The Gray Chapter is Slipknot’s first new album since 2008, where All Hope Is Gone also landed at the top spot. Of course, like everyone else, Slipknot’s numbers were down – over 100,000 copies down to be exact. Still 132,000 copies is sound in an age where few albums are selling particularly well.

ATL rapper T.I. had a respectable week, selling 80,000 copies of Paperwork. The reason it’s respectable isn’t because of hi...

CD Review: A Failed Apology - 'This Past Year'

CD Review: A Failed Apology - 'This Past Year'
On their latest EP soiree This Past Year, pop-punk merchants A Failed Apology are, at times, more punk than pop (“This Past Year...,” “Say It, I Love You”) thanks to punchy guitars and driving rhythms, though there are instances when the pop outweighs the punk (“Keep Your Head Up,” “The Way I Think Of You”) due to severe bouts of call-and-response vocals and unavoidably catchy hooks (the Knuckle Punk and Real Friends shout out in “Keep Your Head Up” is just the icing on the cake). Just as the band did with “Goodbye” on their previous EP The Weekend, A Failed Apology turns down the lights an...

Florida Georgia Line Captures Their First No. 1 Spot On Billboar
For a third week, country rules the top spot of the Billboard 200. Last week it was Jason Aldean’s Old Boots, New Dirt (who settles for #2 this week). This week’s honors go to Florida Georgia Line who sells a strong 197,000 copies of Anything Goes. Anything Goes is the sole album to sell more than 100,000 copies this week and outpaced the second place album by more than 100,000 copies. Guess Tyler and Brian have something to celebrate – as if they weren’t celebrating already.

Even though the numbers continue to stink, there are plenty of new albums being dropped by many notable artis...
