Possible. Rumer should do well on physicals but she's not so high on downloads. Paloma has two versions of the album both top 5, Rumer doesn't (one low 20, one low 40).Timmy94 wrote:I think it'll end below Rumer's album in the end...Blondini wrote:Set to be #2 album behind Gary Barlow's 7-track.

I so thought I was going to be the only person in the world to think 'dubstep' when I heard that part of the song!Cactuar wrote:1) The wob wob wob dubsteppy bit in Let Your Love Walk In.
Paloma Faith heading for first Number 1 album with Fall To Grace
By Lauren Kreisler
Hackney starlet Paloma Faith could be on track for her first Official Number 1 album this weekend, as Fall To Grace drops straight into the top spot of today’s Official Albums Chart Update.
The second studio album from the singer/songwriter, produced by Nellee Hooper, looks set to be her highest charting record to date as 2009 debut album Do You Want The Truth Or Something Beautiful peaked at Number 9. The albums features Top 10 single Picking Up The Pieces.
Paloma Faith (1) leads a flurry of 13 new entries on today’s Official Albums Chart Update, the rest of the Top 5 separated only by a few thousand copies.
Gary Barlow & The Commonwealth Band are new in at Number 2 with Diamond Jubilee release Sing, while New York glam pop outfit Scissor Sisters are on track for Number 3 with Magic Hour. Rumer’s Boys Don’t Cry and Russell Watson’s Anthems complete the Top 5.
Elsewhere Iceland’s Sigur Ros are back with new album Valtari (6), Melody Gardot’s The Absence (8), Ultravox’s Brilliant (9) Alt-J’s An Awesome Wave (13), Regina Spektor’s What We Saw From The Cheap Seats (14), Architect’s Daybreaker (22) and Laura Wright’s Glorious (30) are all new entries on today’s Update.
And finally, completing this week’s Official Albums Chart Update Top 40 is Public Image Limited with new release This Is PiL (39). In a recent interview with OfficialCharts.com, PiL and Sex Pistols frontman John Lydon, AKA Johnny Rotten, let slip that he actually had no idea the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee was coming up this weekend.
The singer, who caused wide-spread public outrage with his band’s single God Save The Queen during Her Majesty Elizabeth II’s Silver Jubilee 35 years ago, was asked what he was planning to do to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee, he replied: “I wasn’t actually aware it was coming up! And I’m not joking, this is the actual truth.”
Lydon added that he didn’t remember much of Her Majesty’s Silver Jubilee, either. “When the Sex Pistols did the Jubilee Boat Tour, I was in no fit condition to be aware that was happening either.”
I don't think so, on Wednesday a full 6,000 ahead of Scissor Sisters and Rumer. I guess the Barlow might sell more over the weekend but more likely next week though? And that was 3.5k behind.Blondini wrote:Busy chart!
I think she'll be overtaken by the weekend.
