I don't think it's that bad sales figures really. Though if there was any justice in the world, he would sell a bajillion times as much. This album is really really solid.

not bad. anyone know where we used to get the Soundscan numbers? I know they sent a letter telling us to stop posting them, but someone had to get them from somewhere. Think a member just worked in the industry and had access, or is there another site that posts them?

I picked it up and love it! I'm not too disappointed in those sales figures... I'm not really sure how Hello, Good Friend sold, so I'm really in the dark when it comes to expectations. I think it'll pick up with his stint on Warped Tour and the fall tour with The Academy Is..., but I think he's got a pretty solid fan base already. Maybe I'm just kind of misled by the times I've seen him, but the crowds were really into him on the tours with The Early November and (surprise) hellogoodbye. I'll never forget the first time he came to Cleveland and put on an amazing show in front of about 40 or 50 people.

there's a site that is password protected. i got the password through a friend at the now defunct columbia records, and soon after receiving it, that certain password was banned due to multiple IP's logging in. they're extremely strict about it.

15k is not too bad for him....I dont know how hard Island has pushed this thing

I think he might have been hoping for a little more but he will be ok....it will be over 100k by the end of the fall i think

He didn't know what to even expect. Island thinks the world of this album, I think they probably expected more.
