it's only release day but it's No1 in the UK, US, Canada and Italy pop charts, and sits at No3 in the main UK and US album charts- whatever happens to it- it's probably eclipsed RCM on day one.

I can't believe it's just the fanbase buying this- will see what happens tomorrow (excuse the pun)- it's a bloody brilliant album that deserves to be heard by a wider audience

Great pic, partygirl!

I downloaded it first thing this morning and listened to it on the way to work. It's really good.

My three favorites were right in a row - Girl Panic, The Man Who Stole a Leopard, and Runaway Runaway.

YAY!

Safe is probably my favorite, but man this album really does harken back. Aside the fact that his voice is impossibly indistinguishable from it's old self, musically I just feel like so many of these tracks wold fit right in with the original albums (and don't get me wrong - I LOVE the last two albums). This one is just an absolute blast to listen to over and over.

I think his voice has been a touch Auto-Toned on this one.

Yeah, I have no doubt that it's being manipulated some to get that perfect pitch for the album, but in terms of range and clarity his voice doesn't seem to have changed, whereas other guys' voices have gotten pretty ravaged over time, understandably.

Anyway, after several listens, the only one that seems a little out of place (though still a nice song) is Leave a Light On. It sounds a little more like a Medazzaland track. I can't wait to hear the remaining three songs.
