The animated film “Trolls” sees its soundtrack climb back to the top of the ARIA Albums Chart for a third accumulated week at the top.

“Trolls” is the first soundtrack to reclaim the No.1 Albums Chart spot since the first “Bridget Jones’s Diary” album returned for a fifth and final week at the top in mid-September of 2001. Plus we could also be seeing another big-time soundtrack jump in or claim a No.1 spot in “50 Shades Darker”, with the original “Fifty Shades of Grey” becoming the first ever soundtrack to debut at No.1 back in mid-February of 2015. Talking of Soundtracks we still have four of them within the Top 10 again this week, with ‘Moana’ returning to its former peak of No.3, up one this week, and down a spot to No.4 is the ‘Sing’ soundtrack, whilst the new UK No.1 album is our No.9 this week in the “La La Land” soundtrack, down a single spot here.

Last weeks No.1 debut in “Dragonfly” for Kasey Chambers is down a spot to No.2 this week, helped by her 2CD bonus edition coming out this past week possibly. After the soundtracks we see the highest new entry of the week in the form of the tenth studio album for US rock band Train entitled “A Girl, A Bottle, A Boat”, coming in at No.5, and becoming the band’s fourth Top 10 album in Australia, and now second highest charted set after their first chart entry here, the bands second album,”Drops of Jupiter”, which peaked at No.3 for three broken weeks in September of 2001.

Adele is down one spot to No.6 with her “25” album, whilst the second debut within the ten is new at No.7, Brian and Jenn Johnson with their first entry and third studio album “After All These Years”, the pair originally a major part of the Bethel Music Church group, and their first re-teaming in over ten years too. The third entry (but not a new one) to the Top 10 is spending its first week within the ten after several factors, first its lead single “Jungle” was the #3 song on the Triple J Hottest 100 for 2016, and is up a massive 44 spots to No.39 this week, plus the physical CD was issued the past week, which all helps Tash Sultana see her “Notion” EP bullet up sixty-six places this week to land at a new peak of No.8. The third and final Australian artist within the Top 10 this week is a stable Keith Urban with his “Ripcord” set at No.10.

* The 2000 Avalanches debut set “Since I Left You” originally peaked at No.21 in late October of 2001, and last year when they finally issued their second album “Wildflower” (HP-1×1, returns this week at No.79) it got as high as No.25, but now this week the set returns to the Top 100 at a new peak of No.15 thanks to a limited edition vinyl release last week.
* Human Nature started touring the country this past week, which helps their current album “Gimme Some Lovin’: Jukebox Vol.II” to leap back up twenty-five spots to No.17.
* Guns N’ Roses start their national tour here next week, and their “Greatest Hits” set is back up four this week to No.24.
* “Blurryface” for twenty one pilots rebounds twenty-seven places to No.31 this week.
* Thanks to their recent tour, the Panic! At the Disco album “Death of a Bachelor” is back up twenty places to No.48, whilst their older album “Too Weird to Live, Too Rare to Die!” returns to the chart at No.98.
* Also touring at the moment are local group Tame Impala, which helps their “Currents” album to rebound forty-five spots to No.49.
* The rock band I Prevail just announced a late-March and early April national tour, which in turn helps their “Lifelines” album to rise back up twenty places to No.53 this week.
* And current tourists QSP {Suzi Quatro (the Q), Andy Scott (the S) from The Sweet and Don Powell (the P) from Slade} see their self-titled set jump up twenty spots to a new peak of No.58.
* Amongst the many returning albums this week are “Frogstomp” for Silverchair (#57), “Born in the USA” for current mega-tourist Bruce Springsteen (#65), “Romanza” by Andrea Bocelli (#71), another current tourist in Aurora with “My Demons Greeting Me as a Friend” (#72), and Halsey is back in with “Badlands” (#87).
* Last week was Country Music Week in Tamworth, and the winner for Album of the Year was “Things I Carry Around” by Troy Cassar-Daley, which is back in at No.84.
* The Roy Orbison “Ultimate Collection” jumps back up twenty spots to No.63.
* The soundtrack for “Frozen” is back up seventeen places to No.80.
Not only do the singles fly this week, but their parent albums also get a lift from the annual survey of Triple J’s Hottest 100 Singles.
* Flume snatched the #1 and #8 songs in the countdown, which helps his second album “Skin” to leap back up thirteen places to No.12.
* Violent Soho landed five songs within the hundred, which sees their “WACO” set rise again this week, up eighteen spots to No.36.
* The second Glass Animals album “How To Be a Human Being” returns to the chart at No.50, thanks to three songs from the album landing position within the hundred.
* RuFuS scored two entries in the J 100, and their “Bloom” album rises twelve places to No.51.
* The Hilltop Hoods also landed two J songs for 2016, and their parent album “Drinking… Walking… Restrung” is up fourteen spots to No.52.
* Catfish and the Bottlemen (3 entries) with “The Ride” (HP-6) returned at No.92 last week, and now this week it is up fourteen spots to No.78.
* The final returning album of the week this week is “Hills End” by DMA’s at No.96, the act scoring two songs within the hundred, including the No.6 spot for their ‘Like a Version’ of “Believe”.

* The three albums leaving the Top 10 all do so for the first time, with “Blue & Lonesome” (HP-1×1, WI10-8) for The Rolling Stones down four to No.13.
* “Endless” (HP-3, WI10-2) for The McClymonts drops eight to No.14 and the final album leaving the ten also debuted the same week at the country sister act, The xx with “I See You” (HP-1×1, WI10-2), which tumbles sixteen places to No.23 this week.
* The soundtrack for “Suicide Squad” is down nine spots to No.27.
* Both of the George Michael compilations drop this week, with “Ladies & Gentlemen” down fourteen spots to No.29 and “Twenty-Five” falling twelve to No.39.
* Little Mix might have risen with their new single “Touch” (32 to 21), but their album “Glory Days” drops fourteen spots to No.33 this week.
* Metallica falls thirteen to No.35 with “Hardwired… to Self-Destruct”.
* Now that their national tour is finished for Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds, their rise last week for “Skeleton Tree” reverses this week, dropping twenty-one spots to No.37.
* Sia might have four singles within the Top 100 from “This is Acting” (with a new one debuting this week), but the set drops sixteen spots this week to No.42 on the albums chart.
* After resurges last week for collections from The Wiggles (TW-31 to 40), Cold Chisel (TW-30 to 44), INXS (TW-32 to 59) and Play School (TW-35 to 46), they all fall down this week.
* James Arthur leaves the Top 50 for the first time with his second album “Back from the Edge”, which drops fourteen places to No.55.
* The self-titled third album for Run the Jewels falls twenty-one spots this week to No.60.
* The self-titled tenth album for AFI (The Blood Album) plummets thirty-nine spots to No.61 after debuting at No.12 last week.
* It might have gone gold last week, but this week the last Leonard Cohen studio album “You Want it Darker” drops twenty places to No.67.
* Queen’s 1982 “Greatest Hits” collection falls twenty-two spots to No.73, whilst collections for Phil Collins (64 to 75), David Bowie in “Legacy” (55 to 76) and Michael Jackson (79 to 85) also drop.
* Michael Buble leaves the Top 50 for this first time with his “Nobody But Me” set, down twenty-six spots to land at No.74 this week.

* Robbie Williams’ “The Heavy Entertainment Show” falls twenty-seven places to No.86.
* Bonobo halves his position from last week, falling forty-four places to No.88 with “Migration”.
* But falling the hardest within the Top 100 is the Dolly Parton, Emmylou Harris and Linda Ronstadt compile “My Dear Companion”, which descends fifty-four places to land at No.91 this week.
* Carrie Underwood sees her “Storyteller” album drop thirty-one spots to No.93.

* #25 (LP#3) – More Than Meets the Eyes by Aleyce Simmonds is the third studio album for the Port Macquarie based and former Golden Guitar winner, whose country albums have won her five GG’s so far, and this is her first albums chart entry, helped by the festival over the past two weeks in Tamworth.
* #26 (LP#2) – C U L T U R E by Migos is the second studio album and first entry here for the US hip hop trio, who currently have the No.1 single in the USA, and here “Bad and Boujee” is down a spot to No.37.
* #30 (LP#14) – Gods of Violence by Kreator is the German thrash-metal bands first ever ARIA Albums Chart entry, and their first to hit No.1 in their home country.
* #32 (LP#1) – SexySweetSavage by Kehlani is the debut set for this California singer whose full name is Kehlani Ashley Parrish, and who first got into the music industry when she and her friends got onto America’s Got Talent as the act Poplyfe in 2015, whilst she was nominated for a Grammy for her second mixtape “You Should Be Here” in 2016.
* #34 (LP#4) – The Devil Don’t Sleep by Brantley Gilbert becomes the US country singers’ second ARIA Albums Chart entry in Australia, as his third set “Just As I am” debuted and peaked at No.87 in June 2014, so by entering within the Top 40 this becomes his highest charted album here, and this weeks info was from digital sales only, with the physical CD released on Friday (3rd Feb), so it could rise next week.
* #92 (LP#2) – Warpath by Boris the Blade is the second album for the Melbourne heavy metal act, and first to make the charts Top 100.
