"Only" #12 in Finland, but I'm surprised it managed to beat 13, Think Tank and Plastic Beach (poor #37).

Even if the new songs haven't been played here on the radio, it feels like the press and people (especially record buying folk) are digging Blur once again... The excellent gig at Provinssirock 2013 has got to do something about it.

And what is in the top? Something Finnish or other UK/US bands?

In Russian iTunes Store it is only #31 behind some random Russian dudes, Mumford & Sons and "50 Shades of Grey OST" (seriously?!) - but I think it is pretty good, considering how little radio coverage blur have here

Albums only climb the charts after week 1 if they have a single picking up large amounts of airplay which I'm guessing (might be wrong?) isn't the case in France.

24 in the US isn't bad at all really! For a Blur album. Beat Everyday Robots. And beat Noel's 2nd solo album too. So I hope they realize this is good! :) Now I just wanna see how many it sold here...

#2 in hungary!!!! :D very good position, usually you can't hardly find any normal music (only shitty hungarian x-factor winners, lame metal bands and very mainstream singers like madonna...) on the list.

I'm pretty pleased wiht that. Beat Noel's second album placing too? That's pretty impressive considering the amount of traditional promo Noel did.
