The One Direction juggernaut rolls on, preventing Jack White’s solo debut Blunderbuss from reaching the top spot.

Otherwise, it was a pretty poor week for new entries. Damien Leith’s Now & Then came in at number 12, Children Collide’s Monument at16, Birdy’s self-titled debut at 29 and Rufus Wainwright’s Out Of The Game at 38.

Seal cashes in on his Voice celebrity, his Hits album up from 24 to 13, Gotye’s OS success bringing Making Mirrors up to 17 from 31, and a visit from Christina Perri got Lovestrong back into the charts at 37.

After One Direction and Jack White, it’s Adele (still!), Ed Sheeran (still!), Kate Miller-Heidke’s Nightflight holding well after its number two debut last week, The Black Keys, Bob Seger (still!), Chisel, Hilltop, and Skrillex rounding out the top ten.

Train slumped heavily in their second week, going from 14 to 26, and Tony Bennett’s post-Logies run sees Duets II sink from 28 to 40.

There’s action on the Singles Chart, Reece Mastin’s ‘Shut Up & Kiss Me’ shooting in at number two, Maroon 5’s ‘Payphone’ with Wiz Khalifa at seven, and Flo Rida’s ‘Whistle’ at eight. But Carly Rae Jepsen still holds number one with ‘Call Me Maybe’, possibly cemented by a recent lip-synch by buddy Justin Bieber.
