Wow I can't believe Lamb of God is that high on the list. I had made a thread a few weeks ago recommending the album based off an advance I had received and got a bunch of people talking shit.

It's good to see I'm not the only one that thinks this band has some talent.

Paris Hilton sold what?

Congrats to Cartel for breaking 100k and still going strong (steady 5k)!! Anyone thinking 150k???
HGB showing lots of life at 3rd week of release 10k is a great figure. Looks as if HGB is going to eclipse the ep.
TEN, ugh down to 2k but I am sure things will rev up soon once they hit up the NFG tour.
Halifax finally over the 31k mark, sure to hit 40k and hopefully w/some good tours/support they will clear 50k which isnt bad at all for a 1st full release.

paris hilton is fucking famous and had an incredibly marketed and anticipated album in pop. so if you don't understand why, you're retarded.

Too bad they are downright awful and dont deserve any of it. Its a tragedy when shitty generic radio rock it outselling good bands like Thursday and Saves the Day who are sadly absent from the list.
