With ordinary love doing so well on itunes how will this reflect on the billboard chart? Does itunes take up a big chunk of billboards sales?

Its great to see bands like u2 and coldplay flying high in the singles charts. Its better then most of the other chart junk

Ordinary Love is #3 on Canadian iTunes as well.

Magic is also #1.

Wikipedia says: The Hot 100 formula starting 2013 generally incorporates sales (35-45%), airplay (30-40%) and streaming (20-30%), and the precise percentage can change from week to week

So the digital sales count for the most typically. Watching it on YouTube or any streaming site does as well.

Well, to be clear...NAIH is my overall favorite REM album. I get in the mood for all their others, but that one has it all (including Bill) at their peak.  Its for the fans and for themselves. Not about relevance. What would compare in the u2 cannon? Maybe that's what no line could have been...but with too much edited out? And instead of crowd noise, we got birds?

So this album has songs that were recorded live during shows that are the final album versions ?

Wikipedia R.E.M's New Adventure in Hifi...then look up their Live at Olympia album (great). That will answer questions. I meant it was for the fans because it wasn't about pop singles.
