Re: Australian News Roundup

The Sydney Morning Herald have put Cubism up on smh.tv and it's currently advertised on the site's front page. Not something you see every day!

Re: Australian News Roundup

The other interesting thing to note is that Electric is at #18 on the ARIA digital album chart!

Re: Official chart results

A new entry for "Electric" in Australia at #24 ! http://ariacharts.com.au/chart/albums That's much better than "Elysium" (#50) and also better than "Yes" (#32) :up: That is a lot better than I was expecting, and indeed is their best charting album since Bilingual in 1996. Their album chart history ...

Re: Australian News Roundup

#24 is great news! It's their highest charting album since Bilingual hit #3 way back in 1996. I had no idea the ARIA charts now came out on a Saturday, it's been Sunday for for as long as I can remember.

Elysium is not a patch on Behaviour, not even close! Release perhaps. They're both pretty dreary!

Re: Australian News Roundup

4 Star review from Bernard Zuel in today's Sydney Morning Herald. This is the first local review of Electric that I've seen I think.

Re: Australian News Roundup

Vocal gets another airing on Rage tonight around 4:30am. I've also noticed that Electric is #5 on the JB Hi Fi Best Sellers list, ironically one spot behind Robin Thick. This must be a good sign as JB are about the only retailer selling physical product in Australia these days. I wonder where (or in...

Re: Electric is #2 in the UK midweeks

Apparently the sales figures after Monday were roughly:

Pet Shop Boys 9k
Robin Thicke 8k
Jay-Z 6k

This courtesy of the Haven forum. If Jay-Z is selling a steady 3000 units a day, then it will be tight for #2 come Sunday.

Something called Slant Magazine gives 3 1/2 stars (out of 5) in a fairly positive review: http://www.slantmagazine.com/music/review/pet-shop-boys-electric The Scotsman's Scotland on Sunday is less enthusiastic, offering only 3 stars: http://www.scotsman.com/scotland-on-sunday/scotland/album-review-p...

Re: "Electric" chart position in UK?

Does anyone actually know how the iTunes chart works exactly? I mean it's not that, like the official chart for example, it accumulates all sales for one week and then begins the next week all over again. How often is this chart being updated? I haven't found any information on that so far. On amaz...

These are the ones currently in the top 10: #1 Brazil #1 Czech Republic #1 Finland #1 Hong Kong #1 Israel #1 Russia #1 Spain #1 Sweden #1 Ukraine #2 Chile #2 Lithuania #2 Slovakia #3 Cambodia #3 Th...
