Kanye could do it, but there's probably not enough time by 2011.

If Speak Now were out just as long, it would totally break 3 million also.

Not that there are a ton of musicians that put out albums that are worth buying nowadays, but the problem is that there are musicians that do put out albums worth buying, and not enough people buy them or know about them and are willing to fork over the 10-15 dollars for a disc.

It's not the way it was in 2005 where albums were 20 bucks a week after they were released. They're tops 13 or 14, so it's a shame and I'm not saying I'm innocent either, but I definitely think more labels and artists should be more selective about what they put out.

As per Recovery, it's a really great album that's extraordinarily heartfelt and I'm sold on it. Even if Em is just trying to cash in on sounding like he means it, he played the part super well and convinced the hell out of me. Good for him.

There are so many albums I don't buy because of the sticker price...

For example, I was going to buy Plans by Death Cab a week or so ago and it's $21.99 - what the hell?

I could just buy it on iTunes, but I want a physical CD...

This is the same thing I was thinking. Maybe if he had an extra 2 months.
