I posted this over at alterbridgeband, but I thought it was worth posting here as well.

From what I've been able to track down, as of last week, total US sales for ODR was 291,500 and as of right now, ODR is at #200 on the Billboard Top 200 *ouch*

What concerns me is that if the label/riaa has them certified Gold based on albums shipped, then the expectation was that they would hit that 500,000 sales mark...sooner, rather than later. A pessimist at heart, I can't help but wonder...underneath it all, was there too high of an expectation out of the gate?

I think the biggest selling album ever is like Eagles Greatest Hits at like 30,000,000 sold worldwide.

I'm . Way back when ODR came out, some of you said it had already been certified gold because that's how many were shipped and the president of Wind-Up gave the plaques to the guys and Myles cried and so forth. So, certification was based on shipments. Now, it's been certified for that many sales as well?

Yes, I do believe we had too high expectations, but 500,000 in 3 mos. equals, hopefully 1,000,000 in half a year and 2,000,000 in a year. Of course, sales will speed up for Christmas, slow down afterwards and such, but, hey, there not doin' too bad for a debut album.

If Wind Up had advertised a little for the band and the album in USA and the rest of the world, then they would be getting a platinum record now! Screw you, Wind Up!!
