Personally I love it way more than U.F.O.F. but if one of two Big Thief albums had to be sacrificed in order to get some shine for someone else, I can't complain

Re: your first question, yes, only the redeemed downloads count as album sales. Re: the the second question, Nielsen Soundscan is where Billboard gets their data, but Billboard then decides what to do with that data (i.e. what should count and what should not count). But the question is becoming moot because Valence (parent company of Billboard, and of Stereogum) is buying Soundscan.

Honestly Ryan and I (the resident National stans) spent way too much time debating which of their albums would make it on the list — we felt like there was a strong case for High Violet, Trouble Will Find Me, AND Sleep Well Beast

I totally forgot these bands toured together in '99. Foo Fighters bailed on the Columbus date (which I attended) because they partied too hard the night before. Muse opened. What a time!

Welcome to town! Where did you move from? I skipped past the bar due to long lines and now, with the knowledge of the $5 bourbons, I greatly regret it.
