DIFFERENT TO WHAT?: The Rub considers the total CD sales by genre for 2003 and asks "if alternative rock is the second biggest selling subgenre of rock, what exactly is it providing an alternative to?"

For what it's worth, alt rock sales grew by two million of what executives call "units"; Jazz also grew but the largest gains were in the Latin sector - almost four million extra sales over 2002. You didn't think the Latin Grammys were being given all that care and attention out of the kindness of everyone's hearts, did you? Memo to Robbie: If you want to break America - and we know you do, deep in your heart, still - maybe you should try learning Spanish.
