Re: Help Alter Bridge reach nr. 10. We need your help!

So where did the album debut? Did it reach the top ten?

I believe that it was number eight or nine, somewhere around that area.

Only 47K records sold. How can such a brilliant album only sell 47K the first week when a poor album by Kid Rock sells 3 times that? Ridiculous.

Oh, BTW, it debuted at 13.

Geez. 47,000 copies huh. That sucks. Way to go, fans. Why didn't we all buy 10 copies apiece?

If people didn't download it illegally, I would be willing to bet that number would have been higher.

Because we're not made of freakin' money, that's why.

Possibly, but I think those that really enjoy this CD would have bought it, regardless. I downloaded it a full 2 weeks in advance and still bought it the very morning it came out.

Easy: Kid Rock is a douchebag. When it comes to music, the adoring masses purchase music consisting of supreme douchebaggery and idiocy in droves. If Alter Bridge wants to be a real, bonafide metal band, they shouldn't be concerned with going platinum or diamond or whatever. For example, Dream Theater's highest selling album, Images and Words, was released more than 15 years ago and has sold a mere 620,000 copies in the US, and only 2x platinum overall. Metal bands with crossover appeal, such as Metallica, are often accused of selling out of late. I'd rather AB put out solid albums than sell out.

Re: Help Alter Bridge reach nr. 10. We need your help!

Most of the reviews I've been reading have been giving the album between a 7.5/10 to 9.5/10. Still awaiting reviews by Rolling Stone and All Music Guide, but 6 or 7 excellent reviews can't be a bad thing.

I'm also reminded of OK Go's sophomore album, Oh No. It was released in August '05, but album sales didn't really take off 'til "Here It Goes Again" hit the airwaves a year later. Granted, it's still only sold under 200,000 (according to Billboard, as of this past January), but just b/c an album doesn't sell terribly well in its first 2 weeks doesn't mean it's awful.
