    I worry that we are wishful thinking though. HDD USA posted twice that 5SOS was winning.

    The only thing that bothers me is that I feel it is odd that the update today is EXACTLY the same as the update on Saturday. Usually there is a change.

    I've been streaming the album on Spotify since Friday (I caught a few times where it said it couldn't connect and it wasn't my ISP as I could access other websites) and am disappointed in the whole streaming crapola, too. I went to three different Targets over the weekend and approximately 95% of 5SOS CDs are still on the rack! Granted there were still some ST CDs there but it's so discouraging if she doesn't get #1 when she deserves it. I guess I'll continue to stream but if it doesn't really add up to much, why bother? I thought I read somewhere on this thread that 2 days of streaming is worth buying one CD. I hope I am wrong about that.

    ^ I streamed nonstop since Thursday at midnight to today...but after I heard the final predictions I just gave up on the streaming. It is not going to matter much.

    Does anyone else find it odd that the sales estimate did not even change by 1 cd or 1 stream? It almost feels fake.

    With that said, 85k of tracks sold under the TEA criteria meanings Carrie sold approx 8500 equivalent albums on iTunes. No?

    I wonder if they are restocking 5SOS and not Storyteller? HDD had originally estimated 5SOS to sell 350K, so is it possible that the stores totally stocked up on that album?

    ^ Zac Brown Band is huge. I love them. you should see their sold out tour dates. They sell out every show at huge arenas. I am not surprised they sold well.

    I don't know how much streaming works...but it can't hurt. I just have to say I find it terribly annoying though.

    Same here. I think I'm wearing out my computer! It's running slower....probably due to the round-the-clock streaming!!

    Besides streaming you can post everywhere about the album being released , put up signs and leave flyers around, comment it, blog it, like it, sing it, blast it, - if not the first week maybe we can get #1 the second week -

    LOL @ all of this focus on and devastation over a flash-in-the-pan act like 5SOS. Really shows our level of insecurity as a fan base. I understand that it's a frustrating situation - but at the very least, solace should be taken in the fact that Carrie has already more than proven her long-standing value in music. She's already a legend in her own right, and her legacy alone speaks for itself. She's made more of an impact on music than 5SOS can ever hope to, and is still going strong over a decade into her career. 5SOS is the epitome of a fad; a novelty act at BEST. So please .. let those boys enjoy their 5 Seconds of Success, even if it comes slightly at our expense. Because I can assure you that the last laugh WILL be ours.
