Fantastic news. the Manics being number one is no surprise.

The Script and Brandon Flowers are getting prime time tv adverts to help sell theirs whereas BCC are word of mouth, internet and Planet Rock. Has any radio station other than them actually played any BCC? i doubt it. it'll be interesting to see if the Beeb play anything of it.

I find it hilarious that Phil Collins Motown covers album, mysteriously goes to number one. As if they didn't fudge the numbers on that one. These charts are all based on pre sales anyway and do not reflect actual album sales. If I wanted to listen to a white guy, sing like a black soul singer - I'd rather listen to Glenn Hughes anyday - not some stocky little bald guy, from Chiswick.


All of that aside. I've been listening to nothing but BCC since Sunday and it only gets better with each listen. I think "The Great Divide" is an absolute work of art. Well done guys!

Its dropped to #49 in the new album charts announced yesterday (3rd Oct)

But its still #2 in the Rock album charts behind Linkin Park and #3 in the Indie album charts
