Top 20 of 2007 Album Stats

Not incredibly different than last years, but more countries have been represented this year and, depressingly, less albums from American acts (or even albums that were available in the US) made my list.

Groups - 70%
Solo Artists - 30%
Debut Albums - 35%
Second Albums - 15%
Fourth Album (or higher!) - 15%
Male Singers - 70%
Female Singers - 20%
Male/Female Singers - 10%
American Acts - 5% (Sad, isn’t it? And even this percent is really half Canadian!)
UK Acts - 25%
Swedish Acts - 35%
Norwegian Acts - 10%
Danish Acts - 10%
Australian Acts - 10%
Canadian Acts - 5%
Albums that saw a U.S. release - 25% (Again… very sad)
Albums with any substantial success in the U.S. - 0%
Released in the 1st Quarter (including Dec. 06) - 20%
Released in the 2nd Quarter - 40%
Released in the 3rd Quarter - 20%
Released in the 4th Quarter - 20%

This is a really nice breakdown of the list - I've been having fun trying to guess what's going to be on it!

"Albums with any substantial success in the U.S. - 0%" - made me laugh
