Isn't it sad that in this day and age gold is considered a really big milestone to hit. Back in the early 00's it was only a decent album if all it made it to was gold, to some artists it was considered a failure... the times they are a- changin'.
It makes me wonder if they'll ever revamp the system. Like, would they even consider making 500k the new platinum status? I'm pretty sure this album would have sold a couple million 10 or 15 years ago.
