The fact that the charts aren't showing SOI as #1 proves how irrelevant the charts are. As of a week ago, Apple was saying that U2's new record had been downloaded 26mm times. It's been a week and now physical copies are for sale as well.  To compare, here are all the albums that have had more copies in the hands of fans than SOI.
