Dave Matthews Band: Away from the World

"The Dave Matthews Band leads a wave of new releases taking over the top slots of Billboard’s album chart, as record companies begin their fall assault of major new releases. The Dave Matthews Band’s latest, 'Away From the World' (RCA), opened at No. 1 with 266,000 copies sold in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan. It is the band’s sixth consecutive studio album to debut at No. 1, and the first time any group has achieved such a run. But with music sales depressed over all these days, 'Away From the World' had the lowest opening-week sales number for any of the group’s studio releases since 1996, when its second release, 'Crash,' opened at No. 2 with 254,000, as Billboard noted" (Ben Sisario, "Dave Matthews Band's Latest Opens at No. 1," New York Times, 9/19/12).
