Definitely 100k+, maybe even more than that, I won't be surprised by 200k+ at all. And surely a #1.

It would be a bit of a disappointment if this doesn't crack 100k first week given their past form, although the lack of a lead single isn't going to help. I'll go with 100-150k but definitely wouldn't be surprised if they go a bit higher than that.

I can't see it being under 100k given their past performance, let alone how well some of their previous albums like AM have continued to sell.

Whether it does much more than that, I am not so sure. No lead single and streaming being so prominent (taking away former CD/download buyers) could be detrimental to its initial numbers. Their back catalogue seems to be doing well with streaming, so I am sure in the long run it will be a consistent streamer hit.

This album is getting bad reviews everywhere.

I’ll be surprised to see it pass 100k.

As many as 4 people thinking this will miss no.1?

I plumped for 75-100k because I’m really not sure sales wise. Yes the last album was a huge success and is still high up in the charts but the albums market has taken an even bigger battering in the past 5 years, there’s no lead single and the reviews haven’t been great.

I've only seen one 'bad' review from a critic, most of them are positive or saying it's average.

It is taking a flogging over social media though, and sometimes that can have influence on more casual ‘fans’. I’ve actually quite enjoyed the album after a few listens. But I liked Humbug and Suck It And See which some consider to be poor.

Critically, it's actually getting good reviews mostly! My friends are kind of 50:50, like some LOVE the album but some dislike it.
