I'm actually slightly impressed by how it's done throughout Europe with basically no promotion at all.

Not sure about other countries but in Germany I have seen some of promotion. Sure, GM is usually not here to promote his albums on TV or radio, his first and last live performance on German TV was Amazing in 2004. but I have seen TV adverts, big flash banner for Symphonica on main online newspapers, on newsTV channel with LHDE as background music to the weather with mentioning of the album and artist, I guess the whole week. Also several contests on major online websites for Symphonica albums, news/reports/reviews on GM / Symphonica in the last two weeks,

I would not say there was no promotion here in Germany but usual pr for GMs albums.

I would say there was even much more promotion than 10-20 years ago caused by the power of the internet (facebook, twitter and co.).

I can't really speak about anything before Patience, but there was a lot more promotion for that album 10 years ago throughout the biggest European markets in comparison to Symphonica (which is a bit of weird album anyway, remember how SOTLC did in a much stronger period for GM). He has been practically unavailable for this campaign (no TV appearances, no radio interviews), the single release was perfunctory at best (no physical format, no b-sides, no nothing), the album is promoting a tour which european part ended in 2011. All of this makes the work Universal has done so far all the more impressive. Compare GM's chart positions with Kylie's to see the massive difference in performance. And her album is a studio effort, not to mention she's been more succesful than him chartwise the last 10-12 years or so.

Don't get me wrong, it's nothing spectacular, but considering the circumstances, i am slightly impressed.

P.S. And Germany is actually the biggest European market, so i expect Universal to put more of an effort there in terms of printed promotion and the likes.
