    Per this article at MTV.com, 4300 copies sold. Considering it is sold out in most places, it doesn't look like many copies made it to stores the first week.

    Yeah, I couldn't find the score anywhere around me. I had to get it off of cduniverse. The score is fantastic, though. It needs a wider release.

    Wow. Think of what it could have done had they actually bothered to ship any out to stores.

    I had to download the Score from iTunes on the day it came out. I could not find it anywhere.

    Yay I got mine in the mail today!!!!!! I bought it off of ePay a couple of weeks ago. Jerks charged me $10 shipping, but it only cost them $1.62 plus a bubble envelope. I haven't got to listen to it yet, but I will when I get home from work tonight.

    Really huh? IIRC they weren't going to release it at all because they thought it wouldn't sell. At least we got it and should make getting a score for TF2 a little easier.

    Got mine on the release date from Hastings.:D  Can you believe they were only shipped two discs.

    The CD would have sold more on the release date if they would have done a better job of producing and distributing.

    The music is absolutely splendid. One of the best Movie Score I have heard.

    BAH. it would be nice if it was actually OUT in stores - then we could buy it and boost it up. Best Buy had it REMOVED from their system - they don't even get in the stores anymore, though i think you can order it online...

    I'd better get mine online, then. At least I have the DVD. I'll listen to the score that way until I get the CD.

    Just posted about it on my blog with a shout-out to TFW2005 :) 

    Haven't posted much about the score CD in the past few days but I have heard that the Warners guys are still very much amazed that it has been selling so well. Let us pray that they will soon act accordingly, and get this thing out in as many stores as possible!

    And thanks y'all for helping to get this out :thumb

    Spent 20 minutes looking for the score today at Best Buy, and when I finally found the soundtrack, it was in the wrong area. No score for me..:mad
