    Been listening to it all week. I think its the best album of their career by a fairly long way.

    Surprised that "Blur" sold more than "Parklife" or "The Great Escape". I'd love to see the breakdowns. I know it did better in the US but that increase was negated by how much poorer it did in the UK than the previous 2 albums.

    Musicweek:
    Back in harness after a protracted absence, Brit-pop legends Blur return in triumph, with eighth studio album The Magic Whip debuting atop the chart on sales of 43,746 copies (including 1,093 streaming sales).

    The much-belated follow-up to Think Tank - which opened at number one on sales of 64,803 copies 12 years ago next week - The Magic Whip is the band's sixth straight number one studio album, in a sequence that stretches back more than 20 years and also includes Parklife (1994), The Great Escape (1995), Blur (1997), 13 (1999) and the aforementioned Think Tank (2003). They are the 15th group and 30th act in all to have six number one albums.

    The Magic Whip is doing very well WW so far, in some countries it's the best peak for an album, I'm very happy with that because I love the album

    btw the album is discounted today in UK (google play 99p) so a solid second week is coming

    Hasn't been posted yet, so here goes:
    The Netherlands Top 100

    4 [NE] - The Magic Whip

    Their highest-charting record here- and by FAR. They've never even made the top twenty, the Great Escape only reached #28 and Parklife didn't even chart at all
