I don't think it really matters. HTDAAB has held the # 1 position in Amazon music sales since a couple of weeks before it's release.

The funny thing about all those "negative" reviews is that I guarantee you that these people will be fighting for concert tickets and then singing along with all the new songs at the top of their voices. Negativity gets more attention and it seems a lot of people need attention.
