Personally, I didn't enjoy the album. This may prompt me to give it a second listen, but I don't think it's amazing by any means.

Well I feel dumb. Never heard of this band until now. I'm usually pretty good with whats on billboard and things like that. Good for them though. That's a big number.

Good album. Probably my favorite debut full lenght of the year.

I just listened to the single, not good.

Listen to another song other than the single. Not sure why Its Time was the song that got so much play. Its one of the weakest on the album.

most every band's first album is 1/2 full of old songs from EPs. that's just how it works.

Why do people bother posting just to say they've never heard of the band? Isn't that the whole point of the link and music sites in general...you know, to find new music?

Congrats to them! The newer songs on the album haven't really hit me yet, but the songs from their previous EPs are still awesome. Extremely talented band with a lot of diversity in their sound.

Damn. That's huge! I know I've got my copy! I wish Two Door Cinema Club got a little more attention for their solid album, but solid debut around 18k for them.

your not wrong. It is very common, but at the same time it still doesn't stop from detracting from the album as a whole. Unless your WCAR or something, all their stuff pretty much sounds the same so the EP material that made it onto their debut slotted right in there

They sold more that Melissa Etheridge and Animal Collective, that's something?

Very awesome. Grabbed it for 5 bucks on Amazon.

well at least there will be a 2nd album and it will all be new songs. #2 debut? they will have another album.
