Failure is just sucess rounded down, my friend...


And to look no further that Endtimes are here, or at least that indie rock is no more...(from Pitchfork.)
The Arcade Fire's second album Neon Bible claimed the No. 2 spot on the U.S. Billboard 200 charts this week, stomping all over new LPs from Daughtry, Relient K and Robin Thicke. According to Billboard, the album sold 92,000 copies this week; only Notorious B.I.G.'s Greatest Hits sold more. That album, which was released ten years after the rapper's death, sold 99,000 copies. This position is miles ahead of Funeral's chart ranking, which peaked at #131.

Oh my lordy.
