Damn you Adele, only midweek though I guess!

Nice going though!
Its great to see a genre-busting, risk-taking band like Elbow finally getting the recognition they deserve. There is hope for modern music after all! Very Happy

Damn right. Hey, going in at no 2 is none too shabby. And at least it's not being held off the no 1 spot by something naff like Joe Dolce!

Great chart placing - tbh, rather genuine talent like Adele is keeping the elboys off the summit, than Tinie Todger, Chipmunk or N-Dubz n all that trash.

Couldn't agree more MBV, it is a shame though when an album that deserves top spot is kept off just by when it was released. if BARB was released a few weeks prior or latter it could well get to number one. I cant see them moving up to no.1 by sunday unfortunately.

Wonderful to see it at no. 2!

Adele is quite marvellous tbh so she can be forgiven! Smile A lot of the rest of the "competition" quite obviously doesn't measure up though so good on the elboys! Very Happy

I agree with everyone, I love those two are battling it out, rather than the other shizer! Plus her debut from three years ago is still at number 4.

I'm surprised Noah & The Whale aren't a bit closer considering how comfortably L.I.F.E.G.O.E.S.O.N. outsold Neat Little Rows last week.

Well, when you consider that TSSK only spent one week on the Billboard charts here in the US (!), and the position was #109(!!), which was their highest ever showing on that chart (!!!), then #2 ain't so very bad for a first week, is it? Laughing

Hmm, I don't disagree that Adele is a lot more credible than the rest of the **** that is usually in the charts but she's been up there for weeks now, surely its Elbow's time now?! No.2 is still very good I have to say. Hopefully they'll get no.1 next album seeing as though they've charted higher each release Smile

Maybe it'll hang around like Mika's Life in Cartoon Motion or Back to Black. That was in the top ten for a whole year. Laughing

I'm relieved to see so much love for Adele. I myself think she's quite brilliant. Smile

On that note, though, I do hope Elbow will attain a #1 spot eventually.

Well done Elbow for getting to 2. Seemingly Adele sold twice the amount of albums than Elbow! http://www.digitalspy.co.uk/music/news/a308720/adele-scores-seventh-week-atop-album-chart.html

Well done boys!

As an aside - Adele seems to be unstoppable at the moment, let's hope her album's slightly more interesting than Rolling In The Deep (which is duller than John Major's underpants imho)
