It's been #1 on Amazon's music topsellers for several weeks with the pre-orders so I'm not that surprised. Glad she's doing so well!

Friday - 130k.
Can it clear 200k by the end of the week? I think it's possible. :wink:

I had a quick play of this album last night - it is absolutely fierce! I actually think I may begin to love it.

The title track is amazing. And I'm also growing more into Mercy!

i bought this album on Tuesday and it's terrific. I'm unsure whether it is as good as Back To Black, but it is around that standard. My favourites are Mercy, Rockferry, Delayed Devotion, Stepping Stone & Distant Dreamer...infact the whole album is of a very high standard.
Have a funny feeling this will be taken to the US.

Bought my copy and I think it's an amazing album. This album deserves big success and I think she could be big in the u.s. I think the simplicity to the booklet makes it classy.

My top 3.(for now)

Warwick Avenue
Distant dreamer
Rockferry

I do like it but I don't think its amazing.
Warwick Avenue & Delayed Devotion were the standouts. Nothing comes close to Mercy though.

I think that every song is pretty equal to Mercy, just so different. It may be a little disappointment that Mercy is the only song which is catchy to death. The other tunes are more soothing and a little more laid back. But you certainly can't deny her amazing vocal performances in Stepping Stone or Distant Dreamer. She sings them a hundred times more heartfelt than Mercy. It's incredible!

Delayed Devotion is a great track and I do like the album, but I have to admit that I am a tiny bit disappointed that there aren't more tracks like Mercy, it really shouts out 'single worthy'

This is in almost 52 Years of the UK Album Chart.
(It began on July 28th 1956).

Only 10 Solo Females have managed to Top both
UK Charts in the same Week:,

Barbra Streisand (1980), Madonna (1986, 1989,
& 2005), Whitney Houston (1987), Mariah Carey (1994),
Celine Dion (1995), Kylie Minogue (2001),
Beyonce Knowles (2003), Rihanna (2007), Leona
Lewis (2007), & Duffy (2008).

Madonna is the only one to have done it more than
once - 3 times, & Celine Dion is the only one to
manage it for as long as 5 Weeks in a row....

Thanx for that info! Didn't know Madonna is the only female to do it more than once.

Damn, this album is so awesome!
It grew on me like a pleasent rash!

I couldn't possibly pick a favourite track.
Warwick Avenue, Serious, Holding On Too Long & Delayed Devotion are probably the best.

The only track I skip is Syrup & Honey.
