i wouldnt count on it, my personal opinion is we wont get another album i dunno whatever....basically whatever the record company ask for they will get, if jon likes it or not! i know it doesnt make sense for the an album to flop then the company want more of the same but i just wouldnt put it past them

That's right. Also the band have said on several occasions that this is a sort of treat.

I don't think they're that surprised at the sales figures.

But there's something I don't get... When the band releases an album that sells well they're accused of being commercial, and so on. Now, when they release an album that doesn't sell that well, you hear people saying "this will serve them right", etc... What are they supposed to do in order to please the fans????

Making a good rock album and not something boring like TLFR. There is a lot inbetween being commercial and being boring.

I don`t agree theuy will never make an good album again. It often happened to be artists after having soem pop/flopalbums, they return to their roots. After JOn`s midlifecrises is over( mostly it takes about 5 till 10 years) he will return!
We had crush/bounce and tlfr...now he`s had the top of th ecrises..we`ll go back to basisc again!

the top of the crisis was crush imho- not even you had me from hello was as bad as the worst crush songs, bounce for me was a bit better and tlfr is great cause it shows that the boys dare to do things... bj would never come out with a good record when they would work completely on their own- desmond child, bob rock, bruce fairbairn- those are the names behind the bj success- i hope that pat adds himself to that list...

Actually, it climbed a lot last week, until #23. This week it fell to #33.

Even if it would have been a huge success, I would be sure that they won't do it again. And I still believe this is no record company thing at all.

Oh, and non-Rock does not mean boring, simultaneously, just because it's boring for you!

They would not have released it if they'd think or know that it is crap.
