I gave their last album a shot and probably will give this one one too. Somewhere Simon Cowell is laughing in a big pile of money, smart move cashing in before these kids end up like the Jonas Brothers.

That really puts into perspective how crazy Mumford & Sons selling 600,000+ in the first week is to me. I wouldn't have been shocked if you said these guys would have sold closer to the TSwift mark. Aren't these guys everywhere?

EDIT: Shocked Bieber only sold 375,000 in his first week. Guess I had an exaggerated opinion of what these teen heart throbs would sell. Still, ridiculous numbers for this day and age of record sales.

idk why people expected them to sell way more than that. Yeah, they're a popular boy band but Biebz sold less, and Taylor Swift is definitely an exception. Promo for Red was everywhere you looked, and people still discredit boy bands like they're somehow beneath other forms of pop music. That's a great number. Still weeping at Xtina's projected figures

Boy bands in the 80s and 90s were cool. Its somewhat pretty lame now.

No point to complaining about this. Everyone knows the boyband cycle of life.

Baffling that a band like Mumford and Sons could sell more than One Direction. It's nice to see a real band sell more but, 1D have had far more press.
