I noticed that it isn't ranked on itunes, but also nothing else was either that hasn't been officially released yet. I guess it must be their chart policy to wait until the official release date??? Otherwise, it is hard to imagine that PR would be #1 on Amazon and not rated on Itunes.

Again, no preleased albums on their album charts so maybe that's how they do it.

When his music came to streaming Spotify advertised the hell out of it. Not a peep from Apple. Jimmy Iovine is an arrogant prick. Or maybe I should be blaming Trent Reznor though I'm not sure he makes editorial decisions on what's featured on iTunes.

itunes does not track pre-orders mainly because people can last minute cancel it so they wait till they bill it.

Has there really been any promotion for this?

I pulled up iTunes on my mobile device and it is listed under new music but I'm not seeing much discussion of it in any of my social media feeds. So I'm wondering how many non-die hards even know about it.

I'm not surprised, I think most people I know are not even aware of it. Which is a shame, because despite its many flaws there's a lot to like in this release...
