Even if an album gets popluar like that deosn't meen its a great record for everyone or a great record at all and just because a record didn't get big it doesnt mean it isnt good. I'm just saying that theres a point when it gets so big like that, that there must have been something good on the album that people liked. Honestly triple platinum is very big! I can't name any other album off the top of my head that did so good. But you gotta understand what i mean right?
A couple things: One, triple platinum is a great distinction, but it's not "very big." Two, if you can't name any other album on earth that has sold more than three million copies, that's very odd to me, because Pink Floyd has had a couple that sold far more than 3 million copies. The Dark Side of the Moon has sold well over 45 million copies to date. The Wall is over 30 million. Wish You Were Here is over 10 million the last time I checked. I know Animals has sold close to 5 million, I think.
Not to mention the literally hundreds of albums that have been released in the last 50 years that have sold well over 3 million copies since their release.
