Will they actually sign the front cover or just the booklet? (cause I know I'm odd about this but I don't want any scribbling on my cover)
 
Is it possible to buy The Platinum Collection vinyl unsigned? It doesn't seem to be on their store and Amazon only has a picture disc. I'd like to frame it on the wall but don't want all the signatures on the front... Bizarre how unsigned Steps items are rarer than signed these days!
 
Won't it just be some random employee writing 'To Blah' on an already signed CD?
I shall be conducting a thorough handwriting analysis to discover which band member has written my name on my personalised cd.

I see everyone's pessimism about the writing of someones name but let's chose to believe it's actually Steps writing the name and that it's a great chance for the people who can't get to a signing to get a personalised copy. More to the point - at least they're trying to cater for all and flog more copies to get that #1.
Aitch spray painted (!?) 500 copies of his album yesterday so would we prefer copies with LSL stamping a glitter heart on Claire's face instead? (not gonna lie, I'd buy one)

Is anyone here optimistic that they'll get that No.1 album?
Yeah I am. Is Aitch expected to pull out big sales? I admittedly don't know much about him at all. He got a bit of bad press this week after his album advert was put up over a mural of Ian Curtis in Manchester, but he appears to have recognised it and is correcting it. But it's so difficult to read the market nowadays. He might really take off with strong streaming. That's what will potentially decide it. Steps are strong on physical sales but non-existent elsewhere.

Madonna is releasing a new compilation too, but it's a remix collection, so wouldn't be doing big business I wouldn't have thought. Her last album was a relative bomb.

Yeah, the last few Steps albums have sold more than Madonna's recent efforts in week one.

Aitch is hard to tell as he hasn't released an album/ep for 2 years but has done loads of singles since... but if his album sales are similar to his last two, then Steps should be in with a shot of #1. Especially if they drop the Steve Anderson download format next week and it generates triple platinum sales... haha

Aitch will definitely have an advantage on streaming for sure. Madonna's is a really niche release so I can't see it being lapped up by anyone bar absolute stans. We just really need Steps to have something ready for release week that can either be downloaded or shipped during that week.
