For clarity- they’re considering The Fame Monster as the double album that consists of both The Fame and The Fame Monster, correct?

Been a cuff touple, a puff bupple, a tough couple of years.

Wow, I wonder if 21 will ever get to number 1? 
 

I can’t imagine we will ever see a new album hit the top 10 in the age of streaming

I'm a little surprised Madonna's Immaculate Collection is not there, it's supposed to have sold more than Like A Virgin and True Blue.

Madonna, Britney, Gaga - all have their first couple of albums selling more than their later albums (In the Zone/Blackout, Like a Prayer/Ray of Light, Born This Way/A Star Is Born) which might be greater artistic achievements. It appears like a pattern among pop musicians especially devoted to electropop/dancepop music.

I can see it happening. It's still in the Global Itunes album charts top 10, according to Kworb, and that's 11 years after release!
