Not in this day and age it isn't, I suppose.

The album is good enough, but sometimes it's hard to believe the band that created A Rush... (good lyrics, perfect balance between melancholic and anthemic) and VLV (good lyrics, great intricacies, lots of experimentation and diversity, yet it flows exceptionally well) is the same of the other four records. They have their moments, but as a whole they are so much weaker...

I don't think that anything they put out will ever come close to X&Y, but this album is definitely better than Mylo Xyloto. My favorite tracks are "Ink", "Midnight", and "A Sky Full of Stars".

I didn't think they would sell that many in the first week.

Still haven't heard it cos of Spotify. It's impossible to gauge this but I wonder how many more copies if any they sold because of the Spotify embargo. I know they did this for Mylo at first, as well.

Even as the best first week sales of 2014, I still thought these were dissapointing numbers. Viva La Vida sold like 800,000 copies in the first week, and I feel like this album had much more promotion going for it.
Also, its a great record.
