    Both will be released on November 21, 2011
    Interesting that a remix album is beating a new studio album. Also interesting to note that many fans will not be buying Immortal immediately, and will wait until they have seen the show. However, I think Rihanna will be ahead of Immortal closer to the release date but it's a remix album, I'm not expecting it to be high in the charts.

    But I won't be buying it until after I see the show in the UK in at least two years time. Reason being I don't want to ruin the experience for myself.
    Just a suggestion for those who don't want to listen to the CD before seeing the show, you can still buy it on the release day to help make the album number 1, and then hide the CD deep in a closet until you see the show.

    With The Trial verdict, with Cirque touring, and some kind of album promotion it's a hard to tell how will general public react to this remix album...
    5 years ago The Beatles "Love" (Cirque Soundtrack) was released at the same time of the year (giving time of the year) and it debuted at #4 on the Billboard (behind Jay-Z, Daughtry and compilation album Now That's What I Call Music! 23) with ~ 271k and at the end it sold pretty well, over 2 million copies only in US but that was 5 years ago and since then albums sales have been on the decline (free fall) so it is unlikely to expect such figures but overall I think Immortal would do (very) well.
    I know I'll enjoy listening to it! :dancin:

    I adored the Beatles LOVE soundtrack for their Cirque Du Soleil show, but to be honest that was such a masterpiece because it was mixed and edited by George Martin (with some help from his son) , the original producer/editor/etc etc of the Beatles albums. I'm excited for the Immortal soundtrack however it's getting me down that nobody that was originally involved in Michael's creative process is having a hand in it. I would've loved to see Quincy do something with it, despite what he's said in recent years about Michael he was still there for his biggest albums and he knows his work inside and out.

    Take a listen to "We are the World 2010" and you might just change your mind. Quincy is a senile old man...nothing left for him to bring to the table.

    I think that with first week sales over 200,000 it will be #1. Rihanna will not sell more than 200,000 in the first week. MICHAEL sold 228,000 in the first week in 2010, with boycotting fans! Now I think we can succeed, although it is not studio album.

    Rihanna's first week sales:

    2010 Loud - 207,000 copies
    2009 Rated R - 181,000
    2007 Good Girl Gone Bad - 162,000
    2006 A Girl like Me - 115,000
    2005 Music of the Sun - 69,000

    I think Talk That Talk will sell around 200,000-250,000 in the first week. We CAN beat that. She is not so popular in US like she is in Europe (maybe because of her whore-ish look and vulgar behaviour - that stuff is very popular here).

    I would like to see it go to #1 but it's hard now. I hope it does well in general. Off topic for a second but looking at that it's like Rihanna puts out an album almost every year. It might be too much. I am planning to get the cirque cd because I support the whole cirque de soleil project and it's good for Michael's legacy.

    Hope for APWNN, BG, DYKWYCA, STTM, Escape - and WHE would be great to have out on an official MJ album, not many knows the song. - If sony plans to give 10 new songs again, they could add WHE as a bonus 11th song!

    I agree with you 100% Hess. I'm also excited about this album, just reading the track list makes me very excited, can't wait! I'll probably get both versions
