You've used two opening brackets but only one closing and it's really pestering at my OCD. sad.gif

What a disappointing start to the album. sad.gif

The sales aren't that bad, I think people are over-reacting a bit, fair enough if it was Wordshaker sales all over again, but at least it sold more than that in its first week.

During the time they're on tour, they just need to maintain the publicity (coverage of the tour, good step) and reduce the price of the album to target the casual customer Christmas market.

They wont just simply 'move on' from this era now. They can't afford to. They've put too much into this album to just let it go. A 4th single needs to be sent to radios between now and the end of the year to boost/maintain their airplay (My Heart Takes Over was a radio disaster) followed by the video next year. Then if that fails, a Greatest Hits will be in order.

The next few months will be interesting to say the least. They probably have a contractual agreement to release 5 albums under Polydor (similar/same to Girls Aloud's contract) so If things don't improve when/if they release a Greatest Hits, I can see that being a parting of ways with Polydor.

I think the sales are bad for the time of year we're in. It's all relative, and right now it's only enough for a #23. It seems certain that the album will drop straight out of the Top 40 this coming week, as will the single.

I don't think the label were at all prepared for 'On Your Radar' to flop in this manner, so they're probably not ready to put a new single "out there" yet.

This needs a price cut. Fast. Even if it's down to 5, it should still keep the album in the charts and keep it stocked in stores. I was in HMV again today and there were four Rochelle sleeves and that was it, there was about two "display board" things full of One Direction, Rihanna and Olly Murs.

I'm absolutely dreading seeing the midweeks tomorrow. sad.gif I hope they've somehow got a second week top 40 but even that's doubtful.

I agree, the album already needs a drop in price.
The singles need a price reduction to keep interest in them. However Faster has officially been confirmed as Single 4 so should be sent out to radio's in the next 2 weeks, I would love a tour montage video.

If Pixie Lott couldn't manage two weeks top 40 then I fear for On Your Radar.

I want faster to have a proper video. I always find tour montage videos to be cop outs! I want the colours back as well!!!

I would prefer a tour video.

At least then it's quicker, cheaper and shows what The Saturdays are about and what type of show they put on. It'd be alot more effective in connecting with the public than another video of them posing.

I quite like that idea, that they could connect more with the public by actually using a concert excerpt for one of their videos. Like you said, to show everyone what sort of show they put on.

Only negative thing is, that if the show was shit it ain't gonna help at all.

I hope the Angry Gremlin will go solo after this. The only one worth salvaging.

They are perfectly capable of doing a really fun, spectacular tour video. Something in the line of Rihanna's Cheers would be quite great.

But it could also go all wrong and be boring, so I don't know.

Predictable really! I suppose we won't find out any specific midweek position for this.

If this has fallen to #63 or something by Sunday then I really don't think a fourth single can save it.

You can only really compare this to Sweet 7 which also had three singles released (Get Sexy and About A Girl sold the same as Notorious and All Fired Up, and Wear My Kiss sold more than MHTO) and had a dire chart run (#14 - #43 - #87 - OUT or something).

I knew it wouldn't remain top 40. I think it's gonna be nigh on impossible to save this now, 'Faster' is the best they have but regardless they risk radio not playlisting them after what's happened which can only add another nail in the coffin.

I would say cut their losses and move on to the next, but where do they even go from here? They've evidently tried their hardest and how are they gonna do better?
