wub.gif Thank you for the update!

The Sound of Girls Aloud and Tangled Up were robbed of some weeks in the Top 40 because of the annoying Budget price rule in place at the time! cry.gif TSOGA would most likely have managed 28 weeks instead of 20, tut!

First week sales for the two "other" Girls Aloud albums:

6,147 - Mixed Up
9,637 - Girls A Live

Kind of interesting that Mixed Up sold more copies in total, even though Girls A Live had a significantly better first week! Maybe less copies of Girls A Live were made unsure.gif

tearsmile.gif at both of them selling more copies than Kimberley and Nadine's solo albums. A shame that Nadine's is the only Girls Aloud related studio album to miss the Top 20, but being independent and having Tesco exclusivity didn't help matters. I suppose in some respects it was impressive she even sold 5,000 albums in week 1! Not to mention that a November release was certainly brave.

Does the budget chart rule apply now or was it like a 00s thing?

Did the budget chart sales count to overall totals they just weren’t chart eligible kinda like say if you’re #26 on the chart technically but it’s your fourth most popular track so you can’t chart but the sales are added to overall totals.

If we really get a reunion for the 20th anniversary Ten should get to platinum from the back of that and potentially get some more weeks top 40 too. They really did have great album sales despite their chart runs particularly for their first three studio albums looking similar to how 00s singles used to perform. Tangled Up and Out Of Control managed better longevity particularly within the top 40! But it’s also amazing to see how strong their opening sales were for their albums!

Not sure if the budget chart still exists but it's kinda redundant now that most albums chart due to streaming (I remember the budget chart only took into account physical sales, so an album could still chart if sold enough downloads - think it might have happened with their 2006 GH actually). I think all sales were included when it came to total sales but Jay should be able to provide more info than I can.

Thankfully all its sales still counted towards its total! wub.gif

This portion of the GH's run:

RE (08/02/2009) | 187-x
RE (22/02/2009) | 175-x

... was on the strength of download sales only! While the CD was at #1 in the Budget chart.

The Budget Album chart still exists - the last one I saw was the 10th April chart (Bill Withers - Greatest Hits was at #1).

Obviously I wish it were under better circumstances but it's nice to see Ten back, even if it's only a handful of sales.
