Increasing sales does not necessarily mean getting popular.

I think it's pretty much a given. Whatever dude, Circle II Circle is half-assed radio rock (direct from an 80's time-warp no less) if I've ever heard half-assed radio rock, so I don't really know what your problem is.

It's seriously common sense. You can do something that increases your sales, without making you popular.

I could sell 1,000 albums instead of 300 and still not be "popular" - right?

Ummm, Now I can understand someone not liking the band... but what you said seriously makes no sense.

I don't dislike them, but what doesn't make sense? It's radio-friendly unoriginal material if I ever heard any before. That doesn't make it bad (same with Lacuna Coil) but it's sure hard to deny...

I see what you mean, but I'm just naturally resisting it because of how much I like it.

As soon as I get a chance to hear some Burden of Truth I'll decide whether to pick it up or not. Zakk's a good vocalist. I really hope the 'Tage anniversary stuff Caffery was talking about the other week happens... a show with a lot of old members, a DVD and all that whatnot.
