'Eclipse' Soundtrack debuts strong!

The 'Eclipse' soundtrack has debuted at #1 on the Billboard top 200, narrowly missing out on the top stop which went to the 'Glee' album, 'Journey to Regionals'. AS points out;

"It is no surprise that “Glee” albums have done so well, considering that all its songs are covers. Mega-hits like Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believing” and “Over the Rainbow” have been proven many times over. Whereas the Twilight soundtracks must convince listeners to take a chance on unknown bands and develop an ear for unknown singles, the “Glee” albums invoke the cardinal rule of the entertainment industry: what sells the most are the things that are tried and true.

The “Glee” album had other things going for it, like its lower cost. With only six tracks, it is appropriately priced at $6.98. Though deeply discounted on at $9.99 for the moment, the “Eclipse” list price of $18.98 is nearly three times more. "

Which album did you buy?
