From Music Week
ALBUMS: Marina & The Diamonds' second album Electra Hearts beats faster than its rivals to debut atop the album chart on sales of 21,358 copies. Undoubtedly helped by the success of second single, Primadonna, which bounces 13-11 this week (29,896 sales), the album eclipses the top position of Marina's first album, The Family Jewels, which debuted and peaked at number five although it fails to equal its first week sales of 27,618 copies.
The Family Jewels fell out of the Top 10 after just one week, never to return, and has thus far sold 177,268 copies. Electra Heart's chart-topping debut comes just days after Marina had to postpone her UK tour due to throat problems, and has been given overwhelmingly favourable reviews.
