The Killers have sold 1.1 million copies of Sam's Town, but it was only released in October 2006-- 6mos ago so that is pretty good. Hot Fuss was a slow moving record too, it went up and down the charts and ended it's run in the top 10, so I wouldn't write the Killers off just yet. Also, they've gone 3xs Platinum in the UK-- worldwide they've sold close to 3M records. Mind you, it's not like those numbers that Justin Timberlake has in regards to sales but the music is much better.

Most people steal music anyways. Record sales stats are completely meaningless.

The new arcade fire album scored an 87 on metacritic, the third best reviewed alubm of the year so far. It opened at number 2 on the billboard chart, and is very well recieved by their fans. What Sophmore slump are you talking about?
