2010, the year that was. A complete list from top to bottom of first week Soundscan sales. Since 98% of most new releases experience a huge drop off after the 1st week (a sign of the times), I felt that showing first-week sales (in brackets) for the year would give a better picture. I took out most of the country, rock, etc, but left the big sellers and other notable releases in.

Take a peep at the full list below.
