Well I am not sure this tells us much of anything really. As the lowest rated record on here via Pitchfork, The Black Keys went #1 and the highest rated via consequence of sound, Owen Pallet, has no chase of going #1. So not much to take away from this but it is always fun to look at and interesting to see the difference between the two websites.
Out of the top 10 though it looks like we have three potential records that could charge for #1.
A Sunny Day in Glasgow
and White lung.
What I find fun about these 3 records all going for #1 is that they are all being worked by different companies. White Lung is AAM. A Sunny Day in Glasgow is Terrorbird and the curveball is Antlers is Pirate and AAM. So we have the opportunity to see the difference between a single indie working a record and two indies. There are of course other factors. The type of record, each bands history at radio, how many copies were sent out.
So what will the charts look like the next couple weeks? I think Jack White holds at #1 for another week at the least and then we will have a real showdown between these three. This time of year since it is so hard to get in touch with stations on a regular basis plus the fact that you have no idea what stations will be reporting on a regular basis makes it harder for newer bands to make that run to #1 and makes it easier for an artist like Jack White to hold on to #1.
So what do you think will make the jump? Lets talk about it on Twitter!
