Don't know why exactly but I thought they'd sell more this week, maybe due to all the hype surrounding this record.

I hate hearing AP users complain in general because they're "musical elitists"

TWFM Vinyl is like $26. Not that much better. Couple that with the $50 they charge for all their concert tickets and its like, I'll pay I'm just glad not every band I like charges that much.

College student here. Maybe it's because I've never been huge into Daft Punk and, other than "Get Lucky" and a few other songs on the record, I really can't do a full album of generic, cheesy disco/pop-funk songs.

Also, never listened to Avicii in my life.

Absolutely this. Yeezus will deliver though, let's not kid ourselves.
