The following were chosen cause aside from the biggest albums (Harry's House, Bad Bunny, etc...these made Some noise.  Some more than others.

 

Atop the list we open with The Weeknd's 'Dawn FM' which debuted at #1 with 148,000 units a underperformance from 2020's Afterhours but critically a success with a 88 on Metacritic. 

 

Up next is Post Malone's 'Twelve Carat Toothache' also an underperformance for Post.  It debuted at number 2 on the Billboard 200 with 121,000 copies sold and 68 on Metacritic.

Quick correction: "Dawn FM" infamously debuted at #2 behind Gunna's "DS4Ever". It spent two more weeks there following the release of physicals, but never reached the top spot.

 

Really cool idea for a rate. Should be intriguing to follow.

I can try to do this. Haven't listened to Posty's or Conan's albums so guess it'd be an excuse to check them out. One of these towers over the others though, won't say which :mandown:
