I just don't get why people keep bringing up buying albums as a problem- in actual albums bought, whether physical or download, they are #6 in the US.

The problem is that streaming now counts too. So if you really wanna compare to 2015 and before in sales you need to take just albums bought category where again, they are apparently #6 here and #5 in the U.K. Either way, people are buying this album and even some promotion for the tour now kicked in, so all that is pretty great!

Why are we talking about BUYING albums? In albums bought they are apparently #6 here and #5 in the U.K. Which sounds pretty great to me. I guess if you wanna compare to pre 2015 / pre streaming counting releases, those are the numbers to use.

The reason I had/have high hopes for the success of this album is that I want Fleetwood Mac to morph into Buckingham McVie.

We now know with certainty there will never be another Fleetwood Mac album thanks to Stevie.

However, if BuckVie had been/were to be more successful this entity could give the Mac and Lindsey/Christine the incentive to continue under this new brand.

Based on these Sales, I'm betting this will be the last BuckVie album.

However, it is interesting to conceive of Mick and John supporting Christine's solo album.

#22 in the U.S. is better than I was expecting. Buckingham McVie is a non-proven entity. The sound may be familiar, but the name is not. Compare this ranking to a Buckingham or McVie solo outing, and I think they have reason to be proud and recognize the relative appeal of collaboration.

Exactly!! Stevie Nicks has been a known name for many years.
Who knows who BUCKVIE are?? First outing. Very shocked and surprised in a good way that they charted. Good job, BuckVie!

Have sales ever stopped Lindsey from producing music before? I don't get the feeling he's really that in it for the money when it comes to the actual production of the album. Say You Will and most of his solo stuff are proof of that.

No. However I believe it would stop them from continuing as a duo.

Debuting at #17 on the Billboard 200 is pretty solid. Good for them.

#6 on Top Album Sales and #17 on Bilboard 200. That's much much better than what we fans were expecting (and what non fans wanted )

That's insane for a duo that not many people know. Good for them!

In the UK they have 4 albums in the top 100;

Buckingham McVie #5
FM Greatest Hits #36
Rumours #45
Very Best of FM #94

A (very quick) scan of the charts tells me they are the only artists with 4 albums in the top 100.

FM have consistently had 2 or 3 albums in the top 100 for several months. A lot of it is down to the Rumours anniversary. However, I think quite a lot is also a bounce coming from Buckingham McVie.
