With some good promotion here in the UK this compilation had a really good chance to be Queen's 10th No1 Album, BUT the idiots at EMI have decided to release it the same week as Robbie Williams. Unbelievable really as both artist are on the same label (EMI).
So unfortunately Absolute Greatest will be totally overshadowed by Robbie as his promotion will be fantastic, I'd expect Queen to go Top 3 at best. If released the week before or week after Robbie I would have thought a No1.
UK Sales 300,000+ / Worldwide 500,000+
