    Well, shit...almost 2 million records worldwide and it hasn't even been out 20 days yet.

    Can we say, go LP?

    Oh..okay each country has different numbers of gold or platinum. I thought it was all the same like 500,00 for gold and 1 mil. for a platinum. Still LP is rocking. They are going to be the best band on this era...

    Could you PLEASE STOP going off-topic in every single thread you enter? This is your final warning. You will not last long if you continue.

    I'm, sorry, but I really don't feel that he was going off topic. I think he was asking about the sales, which is what this is about, technically.

    What part of "Would u guys say MTM is the best album LP made so far?" has anything to do with Minutes To Midnight's sales?

    All he does is run amuck in random threads trying to chat with others about completely irrelevant topics and change the subject.

    I'm convinced he has no idea how a message board works.

    Please enlighten me as to why I'm wrong to say that.

    That could be pretty close. I came up with an estimate of 1.8 million but it was I just used the base numbers for platinum and gold certifications for each country. So I know they sold more in some of the countries. Plus I didn't include any of the countries where it said they debuted at #1 on the charts that were not certified gold or platinum because they didn't give sales numbers.

    Either way. 2 million plus copies sold in the first week is very impressive this day in age with the music industry the way it is and people downloading music without buying it.

    I also did not realize how popular LP was outside of the United States. They seem to be popular everywhere. Lol.

    Anyways. Congrats to LP. I love Minutes to Midnight, but it took me a while ot get used to. And I still think "No Roads Left" should be on the album. It's a great song and shows Mike's vocal range IMO. It's good to know LP are still a force even in 2007. It shows they have staying power. They should be around for a long, long time and I honestly think their next album will be their best ever as they begin to get comfortable with their new sound.

    Ok, I see your point, But I guess he could either be asking about an opinion or the sales, but now I'm Guessing an opinion.

    the only question that remains is "Do the buyers like the album". I'd be willing to bet that 1/2 that bought it don't like it at all. Mainly because of its new style. They thought "oh great, new LP! *runs out and gets it* *comes home* Aw man, wtf is this soft shit?".

    Wow, this is amazing, to get numbers like that all round the world is a huge acheivement. They're proven they're got staying power, thats for sure. We'll be listening to new LP for years by the looks of things.

    Congrats to the band, this is awesome.

    Wow! This album sold very well :p But I had to register just to say that Minutes To Midnight is #1 also in Finland :) I don't know how many copies it sold but...

    EDIT: If it has sold platinium, which I believe it has done then there has been sold more than 30 000 copies here.
