    How much do you think album is going to sell???

    I'm thinking something around 8 million, anything less than that would be a faliure...

    you may say, "why do you care about the sales that's not important???"

    Well I'm worried because if this doesn't sell as expected, im sure the band would break up, and that kind of suks...

    This album won't go pass Meteora's sales.

    Why? Because it's been four years. And frankly, people might be turned off by their new sound.

    I'm going to say about 5 million as well.

    But it will probably sell a lot in it's first week.

    I agree. I think the number of fans lost will certainly outweight the number gained. Personally, I do want it to be a success, but not that successful. Yesterday, this kid starting playing WID in class for everyone, but it was obvious he didn't really care:

    "I think they got rid of the rapper. Didn't he make that remix cd, and then left for his own thing?"

    5 million it's kind of low i surely hope it goes better than that...

    i mean Meteora sold nearly 11 million, 5 is less than a half of that...

    :lol: I've experienced that one a handful of times and I've heard multiple stories of that as well from my friends. Bothers me for some reason.

    I personally think this album will surpass Meteora in sales. From everything I've read, it just seems to me that "The Little Things Give You Away" will boost sales big time. And although they may lose part of the younger fan base, I believe they will gain a much older fan base. I know my parents will prefer this record because there is less rapping. I'm sure "What I've Done" will start this effect if it already hasn't. Just my opinions.

    What about the cussing? Or will you get the edited version?

    I will never buy an edited album. And I never said anything about that but I think I know what your saying. I can safely assume LP will not swear on most of the tracks and if they do, it wont be a Limp Bizkit "Hot Dog" track so people will not be turned off by it. I kind of look at it like an Audioslave album with a few more curse words here and there. Plus, like you said, there is an edited option for people who want to buy the album but don't want the cursing. So there still may be a sale there.

    I hope they release the CD + DVD version with a clean edition of the cd.

    How the fuck do I know?
    This album might suck big time.
    This album might be the greatest record in this millenium.
    I'll try guessing on May 14th :)

    Im hoping 8-10 million. Realistically, its probably gonna sell around what Meteora sold. I think that while, yes it will turn off some younger fans, MTM will definately bring in an older group. There seems to be a lot of good press going around after that listening party, so I think that that may also boost sales. Also, whoever said that TLTGYA would boost album sales, I do not think that there is even a slight chance that that will be released as a single. Its way to long, and probably has no chance at commercial success.

    This is either going to be absolutely huge, and eclipse Hybrid Theory, or it'll sell well, ie. about 7 million copies.

    Really we still don't know how its gonna sound so its hard to guess.

    I agree. Either it will be bigger than Hybrid Theory because music needs that, or at least like 7 Million at the end of it all. It will probably be one of the bigger music sales successes this year, since LP is good at not letting things leak. Oh, FIRST POST! I rule. (^_^)
