From UKMIX, a breakdown of the Thursday update:

47 (63) GOLDEN
Sales: 2,432
Yesterday: 411
Sales WoW: +25%

CD: 1,904
Digital: 233
Streaming: 189
Vinyl: 106


Compared with the breakdown for last Friday's official chart placing:

63 (42) GOLDEN
Sales: 2,307
Total sales: 124,706
Sales WoW: -13%

CD: 1,891
Digital: 132
Streaming: 242
Vinyl: 39


Streaming will likely be about the same week-on-week but everything else is up


Great increase in vinyl - a shame they didn’t extend the Black Friday deals on her official store, Deluxe Vinyl is still half price on Amazon though cheer.gif

Really hoping it can stay top 75 this week just to get that extra week to move up the list of longest chart weeks for an album by kylie. Also I wonder is Christmas kylie showing any signs of coming back to the chart.

Kylie Christmas is only £3.87 on Amazon and is at #1400+ on their overall chart so can’t see it troubling the charts anytime soon.

Hoping it might appear in the buy any item and get X album for £2.99 campaign at HMV during December.

I had thought it might make the top 100 this year but if it doesnt it means golden is in a great position to overtake it in total sales which is good as so much better as an album.

Holding nicely at 54 on UK Itunes

its always a good sign and as it is 2 for £10 in HMV and £5 everywhere else i feel it could hold again top 75 this week and probably another 2.5k sold.

Not too bad.

There are few albums she could overtake during the week.

Ann-Marie has had loads of coverage recently and even she is only a few places ahead

Rita Ora flopping

Such an amazing result for Kylie.... especially when newer and more radio/streaming friendly artists like Rita Ora and Jess Glynne haven't exactly made a massive splash with their 2nd albums (yes, I'm aware Jess started at #1 but for her profile and hits, I thought the album would be a bigger seller and stay longer in the upper reaches of the chart than it has).

I recall being sick (from work) the day Dancing leaked, and I heard it on youtube. I didn't hate it, but I definitely didn't love it. And I thought, oh well.... fingers crossed for a top 10 album. Whoever imagined the album would not only debut at #1 with close to 50K first week sales...but that we would be tracking its position during the Dec timeframe?! So happy for and proud of her. This also bodes well in terms of the record label having confidence in her for a follow up album. And who knows, she may get more budget too! wink.gif And nicer promo slots.

My only 2 regrets with the campaign so far is wrong choice of song for X Factor (she could've just done Stop Me From Falling, again), and no promo slot on Dancing with the Stars.

This likely means it will fall short to stay in the Top 75 region, but, Top 100 looks safe.
2000-2300 sales looks possible.

Golden ranks #23 on Albumism's 50 Best Albums of 2018.

Full album review below:

QUOTE
Behind the many mirrorball anthems that Kylie Minogue has effortlessly produced for years, there has been something more to tune into. “Tightrope,” “Loving Days,” “Cosmic,” “Flower,” “If Only”—to name some—were typically tucked away as album fare or B-sides. Sometimes, the lyrics could be more personal, but the musical canvases for these compositions were always adventurous. And in a post-Impossibe Princess (1997) world, these types of entries attested to the fact that Minogue had mastered her own form of creative subversiveness.

This provides clarity and context for Golden, Minogue's fourteenth studio album in her thirtieth year of recording. For the first time in a long time, here is a Kylie Minogue album that wears its art—and heart—on its sleeve publicly and is the better for it. Though the gap of two decades is substantial, it's hard not to see a connection between Impossible Princess and Golden. The long players are linked by their unique sonic and lyrical shapes, both largely informed by the age of their creator at the time of each album's respective births. The darker emotional walkabout of Impossible Princess saw Minogue facing the uncertainty of her thirties with an unblinking confidence and curiosity, whereas Golden proves the well-worn convention true that with age comes wisdom, now that Minogue is readying to enter her fifties.

As that applies to the record making process, Minogue juggles imagination and pragmatism on this venture. She doesn't abandon hooks, and the set's first single “Dancing” attests to this. This song is as much an earworm as any of her past evergreens. But there's a beautiful blend of joy and melancholy at work on “Dancing” too, a vulnerability that operates at the center of some of her best works.

This intersection of music and words comes from Minogue herself, present and accounted for again as a songwriter within every entry on Golden. Her earnestness puts the new LP light years away from the focus-group feel of Kiss Me Once (2014), a project hampered by its engineered mood. Minogue's keenness for the specifics of song construction and the music needed to bring them to life was encouraged—and made possible—by a diverse collective of producers, co-writers and collaborators she enlisted to help her.

Much is being made of the “country colors” Minogue is painting with on Golden. Minogue has not “gone country,” what she has done is what any pop act should do—experiment. So Golden takes up with a bit of guitar pop, in country, acoustic and AOR accents, sometimes within the same pieces, such as “Stop Me From Falling” and “Shelby '68.” What's more exciting is that Minogue is willing to part with the supposed necessity to maintain a standard “BPM” for the album overall.

Tempos are not rangebound on Golden. Ballads (“Sincerely Yours”), midtempos (“Golden”) and tracks with a bit of dancefloor blush (“Raining Glitter”) all thrive in one space, together. Repeat listens will quickly reveal that underneath the guitar aesthetic, there are other musical elements to be found too—particularly in the cheeky UK soul pastiche of “Low Blow” and the wistful French pop posture “Music's Too Sad Without You,” a duet with Jack Savoretti.

As it is with any new Kylie Minogue record, the critical and commercial hubbub of the moment can slightly obscure what Golden's long reaching effects are to be on the artist herself and her canon. But time will likely be gracious to Golden, a stylish, sensitive totem that eschews stagnation and embraces continued artistic growth. In short, Golden is unequivocally something that Minogue can be proud of.

Notable Tracks: “Dancing” | “Music’s Too Sad Without You” | “Raining Glitter” | “Shelby ‘68”

I agree with the noteable tracks and it's a great and very reflective write up.Not a bad mid week position either.

May be a slight indication it will remain Top 75 in the mid week chart today.
