Granted that number is impressive for a band of this genre or any genre these days but I feel with the amount of hype and buzz they have been riding since Challenger, this should've easily pushed 40k or more. I guess that's what happens when you release the most basic/by the numbers album of their genre in quite some time.

I thought this would at least pull in 40K. I thought Rise went a weird way with marketing this album

Good for them, like the new single but other than that and Beneath The Skin, it's boring.

I'm assuming no one cares, but for reference:

Unconditional: #4, 27k
Challenger: #16, 18k
The Hollow: #109, 4k

I like the majority of unconditional more than challenger. Besides Divinity because of the cringe worthy lyrics and the other mid tempo that isn't speechless.

Other than that it rips harder than I expected.

For some reason I thought this would do considerably more than that - especially compared to OM&M (thought it would be around there) and Issues (thought this would be much bigger)
