    UPDATE Nov. 28:

    Low In High School enters the US Billboard 200 album chart (week of Dec. 9, 2017) at #20.


    Low In High School sold 17,028 copies in the United States the week ending 11/23. That is good for a #9 placing on Billboard's Top Albums Chart. However, Billboard's main Top 200 chart now uses "Sales Plus Streaming" so he enters at #20. Pity, really, because it would be his first Top 10 album here. Under the old rules it would be. It sold slightly more than "World Peace"

      Most of them (like the 3 I bought) were reluctant sales in order to secure pre sale tickets.

      It's bizarre he is only selling that amount of albums given the size of US, amount of press he's getting and that he's playing a very extensive tour to thousands each night

      The album sales in U.K. Also have a very similar problem.

      I dont really understand the logic of people buying a concert ticket (at quite a high price) but balk at buying his new album for a £10 which he's bound to play songs off live.

      Older fans caring only for the old material / not interested in new material ?

      Most people wouldn't pay for a concert ticket if they could sneak in undetected and get a front row seat with no risk of being caught.

      I think that's par for the course - normally sells a few more in the UK (25,000 in week 1) than in the US.
      Guessing the total worldwide for the first week will be around 80,000.

      I purchased 9 copies being the completist that I am (4 colors, green indie, 7 inch boxed set, cassette, CD, and a digital for a concert ticket). Love the album! Cheers Moz!

      People keep saying fans are stuck to his old style. I would like his new style if it were any good. This album is a complete mess... from production, to lyrics, to music, to cover art......

      Also.
      Paloma Faith didn't make it into the Top 200 in America.
      Case closed.
      Well done Morrissey - AGAIN.

      I wondered why a certain member of this site had been conspicuous by their absence - after claiming the album would bomb in the US...

      The people you know are trendy millennial turds. You need to cut them loose. They'll drag you down into an abyss of mediocrity.
