Re: Is there any possibility for a Number 1 album? Look at the list of releases

I wonder how much difference their promotion efforts have really made? They have a fan base who are going to buy the album without all the promotion. I suspect that the promotion created minimal sales and that have not changed the chart position. Spot on. Looking at the album sales from Elysium onw...

Re: Is there any possibility for a Number 1 album? Look at the list of releases

Any record company would snatch em up with the record sales and media interest generated in the last 2 weeks. I don't think so, honestly. They were "dropped" by Parlophone for a reason. They always sold "a lot" of records in the first week. A record company, however, is interested in selling record...

Re: Is there any possibility for a Number 1 album? Look at the list of releases

There are rumours that Hotspot is number one in Germany. Was it confirmed? It's a bit complicated (and ironic) in Germany. Hotspot has entered the official German album charts at #3. However, the official German album charts are nowadays based on revenue and not "units sold". Hotspot is #1 in Germa...

Electric #3
Super #3
Hotspot #3

Will be interesting to see the gap to Eminem. Can't be too many copies. What a shame :)

Re: Is there any possibility for a Number 1 album? Look at the list of releases

I unfortunately doubt that #1 is possible anymore. Even though they climbed a bit on iTunes and are still on amazon, they basically were both of that all week, while already losing about 2000 copies every day compared to J Hus. Unlikely that this will suddenly change. But holding on to #2 might stil...

Re: Is there any possibility for a Number 1 album? Look at the list of releases

I agree, even though its a „disadvantage“ for the PSB. Millions of songs are being streamed every day and customers pay for it (if only on a monthly basis). It wouldn‘t make sense to not include millions of song/album consumptions every day if that‘s the way „we all“ legally listen to music to these...

yeah, and what is the Twitter demographic? Doesn't matter. Twitter was raving about Glastonbury 2010 and, more recently, Hyde Park for example. Its actually a fair question as the people watching that tonight are completely different to those actually tuning into a concert. The performance was real...

Good god, Twitter is basically 97% somewhere between "utter shite", "wtf was that", "I thought they were dead", "cringe" and "please call it a day once and for all".

Re: The Problems With Hotspot

If we are ranking Hotspot, for me it is the worst of the 3 Stuart Price albums. One first listen I thought it was the worst album that they have made but with a few listens I would say it is better than Please, Introspective and a Elysium at least. The difference in taste is quite astonishing, real...

Re: You Are The One - Birds

"Driving down to Zehlendorf
Lie by the lake
on a summer afternoon"

Neil mentioned in a couple of interviews that they love Berlin in the summer, that it is very green (especially for a big city, and that it has lots of parks and lakes there. Bird sounds belong to that in the summer :)
