The below information begins coming in on Monday mornings & continues through Tuesday. It is from Hits Daily Double & shows weekly sales status & chart rankings as of the given update. This one shows that 31.13% of the sales have been compiled & as you can Reba McIntire is in 12th place with 26,710 units. INXS is not on the chart, this doesn’t bode well. Of course things will change & they will be up there, but this compiling service is predicting around 80,000 for the first week.

Here is the final total from Hits Daily Double with all sources accounted for. There will probably be a bit of upward revision when Soundscan makes it official but this will be pretty close. Their original estimate of 80,000 was pretty much on track. I must admit I am very surprised they didn't sell better than this. Especially with the Holiday shopping season in full swing.
15 INXS EPIC 77,175 --
I haven't heard this album yet, so I can't say whether it's good or not. I know a lot of you on here like it, but I gotta say I am more than a little surprised that it hasn't sold any better than it has. Maybe it's the single or maybe the band has just not attracted any new fans. But, here is where the album finished last week & includes the four weeks sales totals. Fewer than 200k 4 four weeks during the Christmas sales season just isn't good. It even fell from 78 to 79.
