Chinese Democracy Not Exactly Flying Off the Shelves

For curiosity's sake, Rocks Off drove over to the Galleria-area Best Buy at 5133 Richmond yesterday afternoon to see if Guns 'N' Roses' new album, Chinese Democracy, was flying off the shelves. This record has taken over thirteen years to come out. Thirteen years ago I myself was about to enter the seventh grade and was almost religiously into MTV's Singled Out.
It seems that Kanye West's new 808s & Heartbreak and the obligatory (read: record-label obligation) Linkin Park live record were beating Axl out the door.The store seemingly had hundreds of copies waiting for imaginary eager ears' purchase; no one was biting while we were there, though. But we did pick up a copy of the Mamma Mia! soundtrack. We aren't made of stone. - Craig Hlavaty
