Three weeks since its release, Rush's Clockwork Angels has fallen sixteen spots to position #26 on Billboard's Top 200 Album List. In other Billboard Charts, Clockwork Angels is holding on fairly well:
  • Top 200 Albums: #26
  • Top Rock Albums: #9
  • Top Hard Rock Albums: #5
  • Top Canadian Albums: #11
  • Top Taste Maker Albums: #7
  • Last week, the album did rank on the Top Digital Albums chart, but it's no longer listed there this week. It is, however, ranked at #60 on the iTunes Charts.

    Comparatively speaking, 2007's Snakes & Arrows, which debuted in the #3 spot dropped down to #20 in its second week and then in its third week, it fell to #35. 2002's Vapor Trails, which started its run on the charts at the #6 spot, fell to #29 in week 2 and then #43 in its third week.

    That said, Clockwork Angels is clearly fairing better than Rush's last two studio offers.

    1. Album remains in Amazon's top 5, and has been since the day of release. As of today, July 5th, it is in the fourth spot... Not bad, as their chart is not updated weekly or daily, but hourly. Consistent sales are a good sign, and demonstrate the strength of this release. Let's make this Gold before the tour starts! Would be awesome if the band had a Gold record in each of the last 5 decades!! (Though they still wouldn't make it into the Hall of Fame... )

    2. Hall of Fame's a joke (mostly). Just another "list" that a few people made-up. Shrug. Real musicians love Rush. Everybody keep buying copies!
