Adele Tops A Huge New Release Week

Adele still reigns supreme on the charts but twelve new entries break into the top 25 in this week’s chart.

While Adele’s 21 is still on top of the ARIA album chart, the real story of the week is a massive onslaught of new releases in the top half of the chart.

Blink-182’s comeback album Neighborhoods ramps right up to number two, Tony Bennett’s Duets II comes in at number three, the Nirvana Nevermind re-release hits five, Kasabian’s Velociraptor! comes in at eight, and Machine Head’s Unto The Locust rounds out a fresh top ten.

But it doesn’t stop there. Jason Derulo’s Future History hit eleven, Alice Cooper’s sequel Welcome 2 My Nightmare came in at 16 on the back of a tour, Mastodon’s The Hunter hit 18, Demi Lovato’s Unbroken at 20, Kasey Chambers’ Storybook at 21, the Dark Side Of The Moon re-release at 22 and Wilco’s The Whole Love at 23.

And, yes, there are another couple of new releases. Tori Amos’ Night Of Hunters came in at 42, rock supergroup Chickenfoot have III at 46, local metalcore band Confession debut at 47 with The Long Way Home and, while we’re at it, Seeker Lover Keeper’s album came back into the chart at number 49.

It’s heartening to see people are buying new music again after some tedious chart reshufflings over the last couple of months. Fifteen new entries. Fifteen new reasons to care. But we have to wait even longer for a giant-killer to remove Adele from the top.

There were a couple of inevitable second-week drops, specifically from cult acts Opeth (12 to 30) and Funkoars (11 to 38).

The Singles Chart remains bunkered down, apart from a big number three debut for Rihanna’s ‘We Found Love’ featuring Calvin Harris. ‘Somebody That I Used To Know’ still holds the number one position there.
