Senjutsu charts position


Educated Fool
The loss of the #1 spot in the UK can be put down to how poorly its sold compared to the last few which is a shame


Here I sit in a serenade of glory!
So what was the sales margin between Book of Souls and Senjutsu then?

Most people stopped buying records. CD shipments slumped by 75 % from 2015 to 2020 in the U.S for example. And streaming does not favour Maiden's type of music in chart calculations. It takes a long time to listen through Senjutsu, but it's still just counted as 10 streams. Drake can achieve that number a lot easier.

There is no point looking at this in absolute numbers. The sales dropped for everyone.

Just compared to TBOS really. It sold about the same with TFF and better than the previous, post-reunion, ones. Still the drop from TBOS is shocking.

It is, especially considering the multiple formats for collectors they have released this time round.
