Then again, that also depends on what type of material is presented to the record companies when they start shopping around. If you go by the stuff they released previously, that could be put into an era. Thing is, there is new stuff coming out. What it sounds like is anybody's guess. Presentation is going to be everything in this situation, and publicity, as it always is. The more advertising you do, the more people you reach, hence more sales and such.

Just my little ringer into things..
