Take That - Greatest Day for The Circus

Take That have scored the biggest first day sale of the year with their new album, The Circus.

The album sold 133,000 copies on its launch day on Monday, according to Official Charts Company sales data.

The figure puts the album easily on course to be number one in Sunday's album chart.

The year's previous fastest-selling album was Coldplay's Viva La Vida Or death And All His Friends, which sold 125,000 copies on its first day.

Despite netting the biggest first day sale title, sales of the album had actually been hit due to the collapse of major CD distributor Entertainment UK last week.

Several key retailers including Woolworths, Zavvi and W H Smith were left without the album on shelves and online on Monday.

How is the album? I loved a Beautiful World, I'll have to track it down and preview it on amazon.
