That's pretty cool. It's neat to see an artist who doesn't suck reach this milestone.

Agreed. 3.4 million copies is an incredible milestone in this day and age.

I mean, I only buy female artists' CDs if they have an average-woman body type.

I make rational and informed purchasing choices because I am a man.

I read from a reliable source once that U2 sold more albums when Bono had long hair.

I only buy albums with pink colors on the cover. How else am I supposed to know if the content is female-appropriate or not?

I'm still waiting for my copy of Songs of Innocence ... For Her!

U2 sold more albums when Bono was slim!

That's a great number in ANY day and age.

Concerning "blandness" and album sales, it was noted in a few articles on her record that her buyers tend to skew older (practically the only people that still purchase music in the first place) and most of her album sales were CDs, so that would explain a lot...the year '21' came out, it actually gave the entire industry a huge boost as so many people purchased the album in brick-and-mortar stores while also picking up other titles in that same trip, thus another ten million or so CDs may have been sold simply because Adele got people into the stores.

So, older folks prefer buying CD's with "blandness" and might purchase more CD's while inside those buildings called stores? The horror!

Yeah, bland.

"A lot of people bought it" doesn't exactly dissuade me from thinking that either. Every band wants to sell as many records as Adele did, but thankfully most great bands make records that are more interesting than 25. Even as somebody that enjoyed 21's singles, I think 25 is way too conservative.

Also, I don't think BigMac is saying anything negative about Adele's effect on the music industry. I think we can all agree it's a good thing that musicians are selling records. I'm glad that Adele is around, I just wish she would use her platform as an excuse to stretch out artistically. Like, at all.

I've listened to the album several times and I wouldn't use the word "bland" to describe it. Maybe "simple". Maybe "understated". Probably a little conservative. She's selling records which is great considering there are numerous artists who can only sell singles and not entire albums. Actually, the only thing I was disappointed with was that the 25 CD booklet doesn't contain the lyrics. Just a lot of pictures of Adele.

I hope by the next album she expands things a little. Not just a piano and her singing with the band just in the background. Yes, her voice should be out front, but the other instruments should be a little more prominent. She said she doesn't want to be a pop star, so perhaps she can juice things up with a more rock type sound. Plus, get some pictures of the people who helped make the album.
