ARIA Albums: Disturbed Immortalized Back At No 1

For the previous eight weeks the ARIA Albums Chart have had an album debuting at the top of the charts (we’ve had eleven in total this year so far), but this week something unique occurs, a former No.1 album climbs back to the top spot in the country.

“Immortalized” by Disturbed is back up three spots to reclaim the top of the ARIA Albums Chart for a second broken week, it first appeared in the No.1 spot 35 weeks ago (31st August, 2015) when it debut at the top, and this week its back at the top thanks to their current Top 10 cover of “The Sound of Silence” (TW-8, HP-4), plus the album receives a Gold (●) sales certification as well as Warner (again) having the top of both the singles and album charts.

The 590th No.1 album in the country becomes one of the rare albums to climb back to the top, the last long return occurred for Ed Sheeran and his “x” (TW-4) album which had a 21 week break between No.1 berths, but the biggest gap goes to another Reprise label act in Michael Buble, who saw his album “Crazy Love” spend three weeks at the top during October 2009, then when Michael toured here in February 2011 the album returned to the top for three weeks, 68 weeks later.

Adele is back up one spot to No.2 with her “25” set and thanks to their current national tour The Hilltop Hoods are back up four spots to No.3 with “Drinking from the Sun, Walking Under Stars: Restrung”, and the tour also helps their non-restrung albums to climb this week too, with “Drinking…” re-entering at No.65 and “Walking’…” up three to No.33. Ed Sheeran is up two spots to No.4 with “x” and blasting back into the Top 5, up twenty-six spots to No.5 is the former No.1 album “Bloom” for RuFus, helped by them playing Coachella this past week in the US and their national tour here starts April 29th in Adelaide and will run through until the end of May before the boys play such festivals as Big Pineapple Festival, Lollapalooza and a show at Red Rocks.

Down one spot to No.6 is the TV Soundtrack for “Molly” after which the two Top 10 debuts for this week occur, the highest being the No.7 entry for PJ Harvey with her eleventh studio album entitled “The Hope Six Demolition Project” which becomes her eighth album to chart here and her second Top 10 placing after her last set “Let England Shake” debuted and peaked at No.6 in late February of 2011.

With Mother’s Day in Australia occurring in a few weeks time, we are going to see some albums climb and debut with slight leanings towards your Mum, and this weeks No.8 debut fits perfectly into the category, “Together” by local classical and musical performers Marina Prior and Mark Vincent. This becomes Marina’s sixth albums chart entry, BUT her first ever Top 10 placing, whilst for Mark it becomes his seventh albums chart entry (all Top 20 or higher; 6 studios, 1 best of) and his fourth Top 10 entry and debut. Returning to the Top 10 for the first time since late February is Sia and “This is Acting”, up five to No.9 for a fifth week within the ten, and down two to No.10 is the self-titled second album for Lukas Graham, meaning we go back down to eight (from nine) former or current No.1 albums within the Top 10 this week. Next week we will see an influx of Prince titles, as he passed the morning after the chart week finished (Friday morning here).

UP: twenty one pilots started their national tour here this week and their album “Blurryface” (HP-11) is back up one to No.12 and it could enter the Top 10 for the first time next week. The newly re-packaged “Stages (Live)” album for Josh Groban leaps fifty-nine spots to land at No.17 and “Title” for Meghan Trainor is back up to No.20 this week. Iron Maiden kick-off their “Book of Souls” (HP-2) national tour here on May 4th in Brisbane, which is why their album returns at No.29 this week and back up seven to No.38 is David Bowie with “Blackstar”. “Nine Track Mind” for Charlie Puth is back up eight to No.40 and “Anti” by Rihanna rises six to No.43 whilst “To Pimp a Butterfly” by Kendrick Lamar returns to the Top 50, up twelve to No.47.

DOWN: The four albums leaving the Top 10 this week all fall into the Top 20 with Matt Corby down five to No.14 with “Telluric” (HP-1×1, WI10-4), last weeks No.1 debut for Deftones and “Gore” (HP-1×1,WI10-1) falls fourteen places to No.15 and leaving the Top 10 for only the second time is Justin Bieber and “Purpose” (HP-1×1, WI10-21) falling six to No.16, whilst the No.2 debut from last week in “Cleopatra” by The Lumineers is down sixteen spots to No.18. “Mind of Mine” for Zayn falls eight to No.23 and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis see their set “This Unruly Mess I’ve Made” fall seven to No.27, but with a national tour just announced for August the album could rise again next week. M83 fall twenty spots to No.32 with “Junk” and down eleven to No.35 is Ed Sheeran and his first album “+”, with Babymetal and “Metal Resistance” down fourteen to No.44 and last weeks No.11 debut for Ben Harper of “Call it What it is”, tumbles this week down thirty-eight to No.49. Falling into the lower fifty are Adele with “21” (40 to 52), Last Shadow Puppets (28 to 54), Fleetwood Mac and “Rumours” (42 to 60), One Direction (50 to 61), Jon English (27 to 62), Alison Wonderland (41 to 72) and Nathaniel Rateliff (38 to 96) with two albums dropping out of the Top 100 from last weeks fifty in “Zakk Wylde (#44) and In Stereo (#46), plus Pet Shop Boys’ “Super” left from #51.

The 24th studio album for Santana enters at No.11 entitled “Santana IV”, with the album reuniting the early 1970s classic lineup of Carlos Santana, Gregg Rolie, Neal Schon, Mike Carabello and Michael Shrieve and marks the first time in 45 years (since 1971’s multi-platinum classic Santana III {HP-4, peaked Jan 1972}) that the quintet has recorded together. It’s also the highest charting album for Santana since his 2010 release and 21st album “Guitar Heaven” (HP-5, peaked late September).

Local opera singer Mirusia debuts at No.21 with “This Time Tomorrow”, her third chart entry and second solo album, her last was “Always and Forever” (HP-17, Oct 2010), her first being the No.1 set “Waltzing Matilda” with Andre Rieu, and speaking of Andre he also debuts this week at No.41 with “Magic of the Waltz” with the Johann Strauss Orchestra. The final Top 50 entry this week is the 2016 Eurovision album, which is to be held in May in Stockholm, Sweden, and this now becomes the fifth year in a row that the compilation from the song contest has hit the charts, last years Vienna album becoming the first to hit the Top 10, peaking at No.4.

Lower 50: INXS’ “The Very Best” jumps back up nineteen to No.53 and returning to the chart at No.59 is James Bay with “Chaos & the Calm” (HP-3), and back up twenty-three to No.63 is Vance Joy with “Dream Your Life Away”. “Direct Hits” for The Killers snuck back in at #100 last week, but this week its up thirty-four spots to No.66 and “Like a Version Vol.11” rises eighteen to No.69 and “So Far So Good” by Bryan Adams is up twenty-two to No.71. “Rage Against the Machine” is up twenty-four to No.74 and Sia with “1000 Forms of Fear” is back up sixteen to No.75, whilst “The Essential Billy Joel” is down nine to No.76 but now 3x▲Platinum in sales. L.R.B. see “The Definitive Collection” jump up twenty-one to No.78 and further returning albums this week come from Red Hot Chili Peppers’ “Greatest Hits” (#80), Conrad Sewell and his “All I Know” EP (#87), the self-titled debut album for The 1975 (#89), the recently released DVD and Blu-Ray for “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” sees its soundtrack back in at No.93 whilst “Back in Black” for AC/DC returns at #94, plus the recently re-issued Cold Chisel album “Live Tapes Vol.2” (HP-19) is back at #98 and The Wiggles best of “Hot Potatoes” sneaks back in at #100.

A new entry to the ARIA Albums chart is the fourth studio album for David Bowie entitled “The Man Who Sold the World” (originally released in 1971), which made it to No.44 back in the first half of 1973 on the AMR/Kent charts. The only other lower fifty new entry this week is from Sydney based Church group C3 Music who come in at No.79 with “Abide”, the C3 standing for Christian City Church International.
