Karise Eden’s “My Journey” album stays on top of the ARIA Albums Chart for a fifth consecutive week, now equaling Damien Leith’s “The Winners Journey” (from 18-Dec-2006) five week stretch at the top for ‘Reality Show Winners (local) Longest No.1 Albums’.

Gavin Ryan reports that Guy Sebastian is still second with his four week run at the top with his debut set “Just as I Am” (from 15-Dec-03). And other than Adele’s nine weeks at the top this year with “21”, Karise now joins One Direction as the second longest running No.1 album this year, both having racked up five weeks apiece.

Justin Bieber’s recent promo tour helps his “Believe” album to climb back up two places to No.2, swapping places with last weeks No.2 debut “Broken Brights” for Angus Stone, now down to No.4, but wedged in between and holding steady at No.3 is Darren Percival’s “Happy Home”.

After two weeks at No.11, fun jump up six places to land at No.5 with their album “Some Nights”, whilst also up is Missy Higgins, whose “The Ol’ Razzle Dazzle” climbs four places to No.6. One Direction climbs two places to No.7 with “Up All Night”, “Teenage Dream” for Katy Perry drops two spots to No.8, Maroon 5 return to the Top 10 at No.9 with “Overexposed” (up three places), and Keith Urban’s “The Story So Far” drops two places to No.10, giving us half of the Top 10 with Australian artists.

NEW PEAKS & MOVERS: With his tour upon us, Ed Sheeran climbs a little this week, up five places to No.13 with “+”, but expect it to jump back into the Top 10 next week. Jack White toured Australia last week, and that helps his “Blunderbuss” (HP-2) album back up eleven places to No.34. Nickelback tickets are on sale now, and their “Here and Now” album is back up ten places to No.36. The Bee Gees return to the Top 50 at No.42 (up from 77) with “Live – One Night Only”, and with the stage show opening in Brisbane recently, the ‘Jersey Boys’ cast recording returns to the Top 100 at No.49 this week.

DOWN DOWN: Of the four Top 10 Aussie debuting acts last week, two don’t survive this week, as Rachael Leahcar is down six places to No.11 and Sarah De Bono drops thirteen places to No.20, both with their debut albums. Chris Brown’s “Fortune” drops six places to No.21 this week, as too does Flo Rida’s “Wild Ones”, down to No.23. “Cornerstone” for Hillsong Live is down nine places to No.28, and after debuting at No.27 last week, Nas drops thirteen places to No.40 with “Life is Good”.

House vs. Hurricane drop twenty-seven places to No.47 with “Crooked Teeth”; Hellyeah is down nineteen spots to No.51 with their third album “Band of Brothers”, and Icehouse returned with three albums last week, two of which drop out of the Top 100, the only one surviving this week is “Man of Colours”, down twenty-two places to No.52.

US band Passion Pit score the highest new entry of the week with their second album entitled “Gossamer”, coming in at No.12. Their first album “Manners” debuted and peaked at No.19 in May 2009, with Australia being its highest charting country. And another US band debut at No.14, The Gaslight Anthem and their fourth album “Handwritten”. This is their second chart entry here, as their third album “American Slang” made it to No.67 in July of 2010, making this new album their best chart effort here so far. And after four studio albums, US heavy metal band Slipknot release their first best of set entitled “Antennas to Hell”, which comes in at No.16, giving all five of their releases here a Top 40 peak or higher.

The third Christopher Nolan Batman film entitled “The Dark Knight Rises” sees its soundtrack debut at No.19 this week. Below is a look at the previous six Batman soundtracks and how well they performed in Australia…
Entry Date|HP|Titles
24-July-89| 4 | Batman (Prince performed the music)
25-Sept-89|47| Batman – The Score
The second film’s soundtrack (Batman Returns) did not score a chart entry

30-July-12 |19| The Dark Knight Rises

The last Top 50 debut of the week comes from local country singer Paul Costa with his album “Wheels & Steel”, his first ARIA Albums chart entry.

Lower 50: Returning this week at No.63 are The xx with their self-titled (HP-40) album; Michael Kiwanuka is back in at No.67 (a new peak also) with his “Home Again” album. The Shins are back in at No.74 with “Port of Morrow” (HP-4), and at No.95 Of Monsters and Men are back with “My Head is an Animal” (HP-89).
