    Default Via Billboard.com - ADKOT May Debut No. 1

    Sales Estimates Have VH Challenging Adele for No. 1 on Top 200 Album Chart

    Van Halen might be on its way to a sixth career No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 chart -- unless Adele's "21" stands in the veteran band's way.

    Industry sources suggest that Van Halen's "A Different Kind of Truth" may sell about 180,000 to 200,000 copies by the end of the tracking week on Sunday, Feb. 12. Under normal circumstances, that would be enough for the recently-signed Interscope act to bump Queen Adele from the top slot.

    That would be quite an accomplishment if ADKOT went to #1. Shows that VH has some loyal fans.

    ..I think the whole meaning for this album is what the band knew since the begining..albums were created as an excuse to tour..meanwhile looking in the review mirror the records were masterpieces..it creates pressure and years in the studio..I think they know what they do best
    ..In 1984 Van Halen Jumped Panama
    Topped Jimmy & Dropped Dead Legs
    ..Ill Wait in this House of Pain with the
    Girl Gone Bad while I am really Hot for Teacher..


    ..Think it was easy ?..you stare at an album
    Cover that long..

    I'm really hoping for ADKOT to get the #1 spot. If it doesn't, at least it's Adele beating them out. I'd rather an artist delivering some real quality music like Adele take the #1 spot than a lot of the other garbage in the current world of pop music.

    Very good, that's about the same first week sales as Pearl Jam's most recent album Backspacer in 2009.

    Adele only sold 121,000 for the #1 spot this week. VH probably only needs about 130,000 to beat that next week (to be safe.) The only other real competitors are The Fray and NOW 41.

    It's been speculated that Adele will have a jump in sales this week because she's getting press for doing an interview on 60Minutes and performing on the Grammys. Plus, Valentine's Day is coming up.

    As I said before, I'm not as concerned with Number One as I am with just selling a lot. Over 200,000 and I'd be happy wherever it ended up.

    It's so f*cking deserving. The BEST rock record in the past 15 years at least.

    So with so many people buying multiple copies, I guess they really have about a 100K individuals buying the album the first week.

    would love to see this in Australia as well .... But not going to happen, I went to 3 stores yesterday and NONE had any Van Halen advertising NONE NOTHING ... shameful

    I hope it goes #1 in the US and sells a bucket load, truly stunning record that deserves a wide audience ...
