Damien Dempsey debuts at No1 on the Albums Chart with his third album 'Shots', improving on his debut album 'They Don't Teach This Shit In School' (2000) which peaked at No47 and his second album 'Seize The Day' which debuted and peaked at No5 in May 2003.
50 Cent's 'Massacre' drops one place to No2 while The Killers hold for a second week at No3. Moby has the next new entry at No6 with 'Hotel': his last album '18' debuted at No1 in May 2002, and previous to that 'Play' debuted at No32 before going on to spend 13 weeks at No1. After debuting at No3 on the Singles Chart last week, McFly claim their first Irish No1 with 'All About You/You've Got A Friend' - the official release of Red Nose Day 2005 in support of Comic Relief. Gwen Stefani and Eve's 'Rich Girl' is this week's highest new entry at No2, missing out on the top spot by the narrowest of sales margins. Nelly and Tim McGraw drop from No1 to No3 with 'Over and Over', ahead of Jennifer Lopez 'Get Right', down from No2 to No4. Tony Christie and Peter Kay have the next highest new entry at No8 with their re-working of 'Amarillo', this year's second official Comic Relief single.
