The occasionally reliable NME is reporting that Britney Spears’ Circus has so far sold 24,000 copies, leaving the album in third place out of the gate. The Killers are hanging on to second place n their second week out, but the real success story is the new Take That disc—titled The Circus—which has the biggest first-day sales of 2008. Yes, even more than Coldplay. Those figures are courtesy of the band’s management, so it should be taken with a grain of salt, but the idea that Take That might possibly have England’s biggest album of 2008 on their hands is surely something to behold.

    I admit I never thought that Take That would end up having more career longevity at this point than Robbie Williams.

    Do you mean England or Britain or the United Kingdom?

    Could it be magic?

    If that album has a single as good as “Shine” from the last album – perhaps my favourite song of 2007 – those sales could be entirely deserved.

    Got to remember their massive sales with the comeback album in 2006 – if anything they’ve got bigger since. The official figures are indeed running around 12k higher than Coldplay at the same stage.
