I've plugged it to my FB friends. Hoping it keeps those banjo-loving dirge merchants off the top spot next week. :)

This is what got Taylor Swift so high up in the chart this week, right? So it's not a bad strategy in terms of keeping the album in the charts (hopefully number 1 again). Says a lot about the value of music these days though...

That's what I thought. I'm just amused that The Magic Whip is now literally a 99. :lol:

The album going to number 1 did seem to generate quite a few news stories, which in turn probably created more sales. 'Reunited Britpop Band with No.1 Album' is probably quite an advantageous position to be in, so why not try and stay there as long as possible :p

Still, this sucks for non-huge bands who simply can't afford to play this kind of game.

Now everything makes sense :mrgreen:

But really. I know nothing about music marketing nowadays, but in my eyes, giving the album FREE just A WEEK after its official release is devaluating it A LOT. I don't know if they will mantain a high position in charts due to that trick, but couldn't they wait a bit to see?

It's not 99p for me when I click the link. I get DKK75 (Danish kroner), which is roughly £7.5. I guess it's only valid in the UK?

It's a Bank Holiday flash sale - I imagine it'll be back to normal tomorrow.

Does this link do the same? https://play.google.com/store/music?hl=en_GB" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

still doesn't work... probably it needs to recognize your devices as ones from the british isles... and your credit card and so on... I tried changing the idiom, but it doesn't seem enough, I will try later under a proxy, see what happens. I will buy a cd, and I'm againts buying mp3s... but just to help the charts if I get to do it, I'll buy
