In other news, the SS numbers are in and The Black Keys get their first number 1 album by edging out Michael Jackson. HDD had them close with Michael at first, but the final numbers are 164K for the Black Keys and 157K for Michael. Given how I feel about posthumous albums from previously rejected tracks, I cannot but happy that artists who have some control over their product gets the number 1.
