Just been announced on Radio 1 it has gone straight in at number 5 on the album chart.

Surprise surprise, Metallica is still number 1.

Wow, #5? I'm impressed!! :) After C-Leb peaking at #33, I didn't expect the album to do so well.

I think it could be #3 after Metallica and Oasis.
But even #5 is very good!!!

Well, #1 on the rock singles chart is nothing to sneeze at, especially considering the crap that dominates the pop singles chart these days, but really, who buys singles anymore? BEsides obsessive fans, obviously. *ahem*

I know. I'm not criticising the song, neither blaming it. I'm just pointing out I'd expect Queen not to do so well in the charts, exactly because nowadays people seem to prefer crap like The Pussycat Dolls, Britney Spears...

i'm happy for them...but for how long will it stay charted ?

i'm waiting for my copy to give a full opinion of the LP.

i wonder if it will have any air-wave in canada ? or the states even...

all seems concentrated for U.K. & europe.

but that is fully normal ;-)

I wouldn't expect it to be concentrated anywhere besides the UK and Europe, since its not being released in North America til October 28th. Assuming Hollywood is planning any kind of promotional push, it certainly won't be this week. I doubt they've even serviced a single to radio yet, assuming they're going to.

Everybody has to put this whole project in a context - the music business has changed a LOT in the 17 years since Innuendo, or even in the 13 years since Made in Heaven. The music business is even more youth-oriented than it used to be, fewer new acts are having long careers, and there's much less crossover for artists than there used to be. And in light of all that, how many bands made up of guys in their early 60s are charting albums in the top five? How many are charting singles on the pop charts at all? Not too damn many. How well did The Who's last project chart? And McCartney's? When was the last time the Stones had a single on the pop charts? Its astonishing to me that they're having this much success.

Hey folks,

"C-Lebrity" entered the German charts at position 67.

The album "The Cosmos Rocks" is not in the Top 20 yet.

@Double-U

What do you expect??

We're living in a country where it's possible to hold the peak position for weeks with something highly qualitative like a 'Burger Dance' oder moronic kids-songs about crocodiles...

C-lebrity went out to radio on September 9th in the US, although according to Entertainment Tonight it does not actually come out until tomorrow.

new album in top 5 is great! especially when we know that they are all (almost all) 60 year old men and that they're missing half of the original band including most loved member which is by far queen best known for. i really don't think who else could've done that! i don't think stones would make top 5 without jagger. qpr deserve that recognition!

Shame the single didn't do a bit better. I'm surprised the album has debuted so high as I wasn't expecting much in the way of public response given the low key advertising. I wonder will it climb next week or fall off the edge of the cliff?
