Of course Adele is atop the ARIA Album Chart for yet another week (check out our assessment of whether she can break the all-time record), but the big surprise is Virginian metallers Lamb Of God, whose seventh album Resolution burst into the chart at number three.

Other new entries this week – after none last week – include Celtic Thunder’s Heritage at 30, British rave-core act Enter Shakari at 32, country star Amber Lawrence’s 3 at 41, and indie hipsters Chairlift at 45 with their album Something.

The Big Day Out and triplej‘s Hottest 100 seemingly had an effect this week, with Boy & Bear climbing from 16 to 9 and Kasabian climbing from 45 to 27 and a lot of the singles getting a bump. And Busby Marou’s heavy touring got their album back in the chart at 40.

The biggest drops were Susan Boyle’s Someone To Watch Over Me slipping from 29 to 42 and the Twilight: Breaking Dawn soundtrack slumping from 33 to 48.

As for the singles chart, Flo Rida’s ‘Wild Ones’ still holds the number one slot, although Matt Corby’s ‘Into The Flame’ EP (which, oddly, is on the singles chart, where Skrillex’s ‘Bangarang’ EP is on the albums chart) shot up from 42 to 8 on the back of his third spot for ‘Brother’ in the Hottest 100.
