So why are we receiving so many of these CDs? We’ve had a little bit of a guess below…
Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What I’m Not – Arctic Monkeys
Alex Turner & Co have changed their sound a fair bit since their breakthrough debut – perhaps people prefer the heavier, moodier sound of AM?
Sunny Side Up – Paolo Nutini
Sunny Side Up was one of the biggest selling albums of 2009 and marked a big step forward for the young Nutini. He’s since released Caustic Love, which is better in almost every way – a pretty good reason to sell this, then.
19 – Adele
While it wasn’t quite the inescapable success 21 was, even the most ardent of Adele fans is probably a little bit sick of Hometown Glory by now…
Best of Bowie – David Bowie
Bowie’s music has spanned so many styles that the only realistic place for newcomers to start is his greatest hits. From there, you can decide your favourite Bowie era then sell this to buy all of the albums from said era (and Hunky Dory, because it’s his best!).
Now That’s What I Call Music! 80
A new Now That’s What I Call Music compilation seems to come out every other week, so it’s understandable that fans of series are selling old copies to make space for new ones.
Jake Bugg – Jake Bugg
Jake Bugg’s 2nd album Shangri-La didn’t do quite as well as his 1st, which suggests the public might be suffering from a bit of Bugg-overload (it was released just over a year after his debut) and consequently selling a few copies of his debut too…
Master of Puppets – Metallica
Master of Puppets is possibly the greatest rock album of all time, so it’s a bit surprising to see it on our chart. Only one explanation really: people bought it before Glastonbury and are selling it after.
Sigh No More – Mumford & Sons
Mumford & Sons announced that they were going on a ‘considerable’ break late last year, which is why we’re probably receiving so many of these from heartbroken fans. That, or people are sick of the banjo.
Lungs – Florence + The Machine
Lungs came out 5 years ago, which is surprising considering You’ve Got The Love is still all over the radio and TV. The band is currently working on their much-anticipated 3rd album, which might explain why so many of you are selling this.
I Brought You My Bullets, You Brought Me Your Love – My Chemical Romance
The debut album from the crown princes of Emo remains one of their best albums. Like Mumford, though, their heartbroken fans are probably selling up and moving on after the band’s recent split.
