The Frames top a pack of album new entries


Brian McFadden makes it 3 weeks at No1 with 'Real To Me', chased at No2 by Eric Prydz 'Call On Me' up from No8. The rest of the Top 10 is remarkably static this week with just a few titles swapping positions, and this week's highest new entry is Groove Armada's re-released 'I See You Baby' at No16.

Unlike the Singles Chart, the Albums Chart has a turbulent week with 4 new entries in the Top 5. The Frames 'Burn The Maps' leads the pack, debuting at No1 with the second highest weekly sales tally for any album so far this year (behind Norah Jones 'Feels Like Home'). It's their fifth studio album and the first to hit the top spot, although their live 'Set List' debuted at No1 in May 2003. Green Day's 'American Idiot' comes in at No2, ahead of Maroon 5's 'Songs About Jane' at No3, down from No2. Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds have this week's third new entry at No4 with double album 'Abattoir Blues/The Lyre Of Orpheus' and Paul Weller debuts at No5 with 'Studio 150'.
