Adele’s previously indomitable run at the top of the ARIA Album Chart has been broken by Foster The People’s Torches album, which wrested the number one slot from her almost nine months after it was released.

With the hype surrounding last week’s Lana Del Rey debut (we’ll find out where it ranks next week) and the forthcoming Hilltop Hoods album, Adele’s crack at the all-time record of weeks at number one is looking shaky.

Festival visits and the Hottest 100 again influenced the charts: the Black Keys up to number three, 360 up to four, Boy & Bear up to five, and Gotye’s Making Mirrors up to number seven.

The Wombats jumped from 46 to 31, Nero re-entered at 32, as did Kanye’s MBDTF at 43, with Watch The Throne climbing from 44 to 35. And M83 popped back in at 42.

The highest charting new release is Tim McGraw’s Emotional Traffic at 14, followed closely by John Williamson’s The Big Red at 15.

Metallica’s offcuts EP Beyond Magnetic debuted at 19, Rod Stewart’s Storyteller anthology debuted at 24 and Swedish folky duo First Aid Kit’s Lion’s Roar album came in at a disappointing 36.

It’s a big relief to see some movement on the Album Chart, but Flo Rida still holds the top slot on the Singles Chart.

The next three spots are solid ascents: Black Keys’ ‘Lonely Boy’ up from 15, Matt Corby’s ‘Into The Flame’ EP (now featuring a “feat. Brother” addendum in the title), and 360 and Gossling’s ‘Boys Like You’ into number four, up from 19.

There were also a bunch of festival/Hottest 100 movements in the bottom half of the chart from San Cisco, Grouplove, M83, Foster The People, Boy & Bear and The Jezabels.
