Just saw the vids on youtube of her GAY show. She looked pretty good and sounded amazing. Love Porcelin Heart.

I'm fast coming around to thinking this is the best GA solo album yet... I know that's not really a hard feat, but I quite liked the Cheryl albums lol. You go, Nicola!

I think Messy Little Raindrops is the best, followed closely by Insatiable. I really can't get in to CInderella's Eyes, apart from Beat of My Drum and Porcelain Heart :(

For me I think Cinderella's Eyes is indeed the best solo Girls Aloud album, especially when looking at it as a whole body of work. Though I love both Cheryl's albums (FFTL is one of my favorite songs ever) and I quite liked Nadine's as well, I think this one is just so unique and i love it.

Love the picture Jamie!! :)

She did far better than I anticipated, I thought she'd be Top 50

The big question now is will it drop fast or stick around?

at least it is a top20 album.

To me this album is not only better than the other Girls Aloud solo albums, it is much better than some Girls Aloud albums like Sound of The Underground, Chemistry and Out of Control (and I love those last 2 to death). Cinderella's Eyes is the best album of the year to me, maybe the best I've heard in a few years actually.

I am pleased it made top 20 but it should really be top 10 because its a fantastic album. On some songs, she reminds me of Gwen Stefani in particular on the song Gladiator. Not sure if any of you agree? x

I'm just pleased she made the Top 20... prior to release I was fully prepared to face the disappointment of it missing the Top 40! I doubt the album will hang around, unfortunately. I expect quite a drop this week. :(

Here are the UK peak positions of all the Girls Aloud related albums:

#01 Girls Aloud - The Sound Of Girls Aloud The Greatest Hits [2006]
#01 Girls Aloud - Out Of Control [2008]
#01 Cheryl Cole - 3 Words [2009]
#01 Cheryl Cole - Messy Little Raindrops [2010]
#02 Girls Aloud - Sound Of The Underground [2003]
#04 Girls Aloud - Tangled Up [2007]
#06 Girls Aloud - What Will The Neighbours Say? [2004]
#11 Girls Aloud - Chemistry [2005]
#17 Nicola Roberts - Cinderella's Eyes [2011]
#29 Girls Aloud - Girls A Live [2008] *
#47 Nadine Coyle - Insatiable [2010]
#56 Girls Aloud - Mixed Up [2007] **

* Girls A Live - Exclusive Live Album sold in Woolworths, alongside Out Of Control.
** Mixed Up - Exclusive Remix Album sold in Woolworths, alongside Tangled Up.

Nicola sold 8473 copies to debut at #17. She needed perhaps 14,000 to get into the Top 10, so she fell someway short of the mark unfortunately.

I was always very happy/surprised that Girls A Live charted so highly.
Shame it didn't help Woolworths :(

Bet Nadine loves that a live album beat her album to a higher position...

I wonder if she's even aware of that fact? :D Both Girls A Live and Mixed Up sold more than Insatiable. :oops:

Insatiable probaly would have performed better had she released it around this time of year same as Nicola instead of November time which is a tough time to release a new album.

Oh well Nadine may have the lowest charting album but not lowest charting single from the group :$
