  1. So this puts NSYNC at less than half the backstreet boys, which totally makes sense. I always felt their music didn’t quite compare…it had a cheaper sound and seemed like they were just riding the boy band trend rather than leading it.

  2. I’m wondering about a similar comparison between Take That and Robbie Williams, at the moment. Who would have higher CSPC in your opinion?

  3. Hah. I knew right from the very beginning that Nsync was extremely local. I was right. Their sales was nowhere near Britney nor BSB. Justin did the right move by dating Britney. It gave him the opportunity to introduce himself to the world, and is very useful for the build up of his solo career.
