    The X Factor is a masterpiece compared to No Prayer For The Dying. Unpopular opinion?

    I'd say yes.

    I don't think so, at least not around here.

    I'm with Perun on this one. The X Factor is a masterpiece compared to every album ever.

    The only song I like on TXF is SOTC. But the production blows away NPFTD.

    Metallica has an estimated 110 million WW sales. Estimated around 30-40 million in the states... almost 20 million of those are The Black Album alone lolololol

    Bruce seems to have stated The Book of Souls went platinum in the USA which means it has sold in excess of 1 million copies. I'll be adjusting the list to reflect

    Here are the changes..

    Dance of Death … 1,165,000
    A Matter of Life and Death … 1,401,000
    The Book of Souls … 1,728, 046

    These numbers are World wide sales. RIAA is only tracking USA sales

    I was referring to the comment about TBOS going platinum in the US, which definitely hasn't happened.

    Bruce made the claim in a concert video that they informed him TBOS went platinum in the usa

    Weird. I'm very suspicious of that claim because comparatively few albums go platinum in the US these days, and Maiden hasn't been a big album seller since the 80s (and even then other artists sold far more), and the RIAA database seems to be otherwise up to date. So I'm unsure where that could've come from.

    I really doubt TBOS sold over 500k in the US (gold). Only a couple albums go platinum a year here.

    again, based solely on Bruce's claims..... I have tracked "officially" 466,152 copies sold outside the USA and 320,800 in the USA for a total of confirmed by records total of 786,952 and that was closing tracking from the end of 2016. Nothing found from 2017 and 2018 sales
     
  17. Why is Bruce being held up as a reliable source here, SirRobbins?
     
  18. Mosh

    Well just use basic logic. The album sold 320k in its first year. For it to go platinum in 2017 it would need to sell more than twice as much in one year alone. That doesn't make any sense.

    I'll be tracking digital downloads soon as well as singles sold from iTunes. I've got to go and adjust a few DVD sales I found recently that had little to no information
