    HSM 3 soundtrack - Disappointing album sales?

    Many of you might not care about High School Musical, but I still think this is an interesting discussion.

    The "High School Musical 3: Senior Year" soundtrack sold 297,000 copies in it's first week. That's a pretty good number considering the state of the music industry right now, but it pales in comparison to HSM 2's first week sales of 615,000 just a year ago.

    There has been a lot of hype around HSM 3 and the film has performed very well so far in theaters, so I'm curious as to why the soundtrack sales aren't more robust. Even on iTunes, it's the #5 album currently, whereas the HSM 1 and HSM 2 albums were at the top for weeks, if I remember correctly.

    Perhaps given the current economy, parents just aren't willing to spend $15-$20 on discretionary items like music albums for their kids. Then again, that didn't stop them from taking their kids to see the movie in theaters.

    Either you see the movie or you buy the soundtrack.

    I used Pepsi Points to download the entire soundtrack from amazon.com and burned it to a CD myself.

    I did buy the HSM 2 soundtrack on the day it was released.
    It's actually "Cars Land", not "Carsland".
