  • First week sales/shipments are in grey brackets.
  • Most of the sales figures - at least those marked by an asterix (*) - are the amounts shipped to retailers and not necessarily sold to customers.
  • Digital streaming is included in the sales figures for Blur's Midlife: A Beginner's Guide To Blur and Gorillaz' The Singles Collection 2001-2011 and Humanz.
  • If you have more or updated sales figures, then please contact me.

 Sources:
  • Blur album sales have been mostly taken from the UKMIX forum topic Blur - Charts & Sales History. Please note that these figures are mainly from the mid-2000s and have increased since then.
  • The first week worldwide sales for Plastic Beach, The Fall, Humanz, GBQ and Everyday Robots are from United World Chart. The initial sales figure for The Sky Is Too High is taken from Blurb #12.
  • The worldwide sales estimate for GBQ is from World Wide Albums.
  • The sales estimates for The Magic Whip, Everyday Robots and some other albums have been calculated by me, Veikko, using various sources such as United World Chart.
