On The Charts: Manson, Gallagher Crack Top Ten


On The Charts: Manson, Gallagher Crack Top Ten

For the second straight week, Ed Sheeran has been kept at #3 on the ARIA album chart by a pair of debut entries, with the thirteenth instalment of Triple J's Like a Version covers compilation grabbing the top spot and Jessica Mauboy's new LP of music from the latest season of The Secret Daughter debuting at #2.

For the rest of the top: some stability. Last week's chart-topper — Shania Twain's Now — slips only as far as five, Macklemore holds steady at six, Foo Fighters' latest, Concrete and Gold, continues to hang around, moving just two spots to #7, while The Killers go from #4 to #8 in their third week on the charts.

Amongst which, just two other new entries — Marilyn Manson's tenth studio LP, Heaven Upside Down, starting at #4 and As You Were, the solo debut from Liam Gallagher, lands at #9. The Oasis vocalist making his first top ten appearance in nine years — Oasis' final LP, 2008's Dig Out Your Soul, got as hight as #5, while his post-Oasis project, Beady Eye, peaked at #18 in 2011.

Further back, Alex Lahey's debut LP, I Love You Like A Brother, lands at #15, two spots ahead of veteran comedy-rockers The Darkness and their fifth full-length Pinewood Smile.

This week, expect a huge shake-up in one of the last weeks of big releases for the calendar year. New ones from Pink, Beck, St. Vincent and Courtney Barnett's collaboration with Kurt Vile are all set to fight it out for the top spots.
