Probably a bit too late to start this but I'm interested to know what position DD will take in the UK Album charts considering it's amazon success.
Do you think it will place higher than "The Eyes?".
I know it probably WONT set the chart alight and land in the top 10/20 but anything is possible...

Well it ain`t made the top 40 this week.

Not really surprised to be honest but take a look at where DD came in the UK Rock Album Chart

I'm hoping for Top 100 aswell. I just have a feeling DD is going to outsell "The Eyes...".

Even though I don't live in England I'll cast my vote to 50/100 as well.

Usually, the previous albums' success/merit has a knock on effect.Sadly I didn't go a bundle on 'Eyes' - and I know that I'm not the only one here to think so.
So, I haven't got high hopes (but fingers are crossed).

I don't know if these chart position have already been posted for Dirty Diamonds?
Austria 66 France 159 Germany 71 sweden 40
No UK position as of yet, I can only assume it did not chart.
Just for interest, The Eyes Of Alice Cooper did the following:
Austria 72 Germany 78 Sweden 59 UK 112.
Dragontown sales were:
France 142 Germany 54 Sweden 41 Switzerland 98
Brutal Planet sales:
Germany 23 Sweden 31 Switzerland 66 UK 38
Of course chart position don't necessarily relate to actual sales, as album can chart high in its first week and sell for example 30,000 copies and then sale very little there on. Whilst an album that charted low could over a course of a year rack up high sales on gradual basis!

I think that the price of the CD has alot to do with it's sales. If you look at both Eyes and DD they have quite high prices. And palces like HMV constantly have Iron Maiden, Metallica, AC/DC etc etc etc albums on sale for around £5.99. I think that most people are waiting for the CD to come down in price before they buy (at least alot of the people that I know are).

I think between 50-100. I can't see it getting any higher, unfortunately.

It's already charted.. I think it was like 89.
