I still feel like 'beekeepers daughter' will catch on to the radio or a follow up ballad will save the record, sales wise. As for the used, their sales this week really speak on the dedication of their fans, they haven't had a radio hit in almost three albums. Congrats to the them.
I love that fun is getting their due. Some Nights is such a great album. I am a little disappointed by AAR's numbers because I think their new album is a pretty solid pop record. The Used is just not my cup of tea, so I can't really comment on their new album.
I feel that part of the reason the AAR album didn't do so well is because of lack of marketing and not having a strong single out before release. Im enjoying it though, and really loved When The World Come Down. oh well, hope the best for the band.
Wow... The Used outsold AAR by 10,000!?!? Guess I underestimated the amount of people that are still into this band out there... But still, kind of shocking considering AAR had a pretty big hit on their previous album.
Shame, cause the AAR album is pretty great, and The Used's is pretty shit from the previews I've heard.
Happy that fun. are still sticking in there though.
