Just like the nerd I am to chime in on the subject of grammar...! :roll:
you've just provided him with a brilliant explanation to cover his back there
Ha ha; I doubt Frank needs my help. Whether or not he decides to explain, I'm sure there *is* a reason because he seems to be an extremely intentional lyricist (and speaker).

Actually, I wasn't even going to reply, but then a much simpler explanation occurred to me (while continuing to do anything BUT work on the project I'm MEANT to be working on right now)-- "Any" has two syllables while "no" only has one, so maybe it was just a matter of timing and he just didn't want to have to spit out "There never was any God" in a rush. (Think "If you've got soul, darling, then show it me", which probably would have been a mouthful with the "to" left in.)

Right. Enough textual analysis for me for today. This is starting to feel like university again...!
yes, but the more obvious 'a' only has 1 syllable.
and drive all night 'till the break of dawn

According to wiki Poetry made 36 ... higher or lower?? I'm going higher. The Road was getting a lot of airplay around the time of Poetry's release which no doubt help the sales, but there's a bigger fan base this time around I guess.
Kingston - 680, SBE - 730, Union Chapel - 770, Kingston 10 - 772, Glastonbury 2010 (Queens Head - 870 / Strummerville - 871), Roundhouse (iTunes 2010) - 881, Strummerville - 1000, Kingston 11 - 1031.

Definitely higher. He did say he was close to Arctic Monkeys on presales.

i'm guessing it's going to be pretty high up. a lot of the chart albums seem to have been around for a while. surprising it's only ranked 6th in the amazon releases for 6 june though :?

i'm going for 8 or 9.
Shows? nowhere near enough of 'em!

I give it a number 10 spot, not really big enough to hit higher. Shame, really.

Don't we normally have a separate sweepstake thread for this with the 40 positions available? Can someone less lazy than me set up?!

I think there's certainly a chance of top 10 (at the very least top 20)....everyone I know seems to be talking about the album, so I think it's going to do pretty good!...but can't count our metaphorical chickens before they hatch!

Ah that double negative was annoying me too and (almost) making me not enjoy that brilliant song. I'm just taking it as an colloquialism to add emphasis to his point.
