For a seventh consecutive week it’s all change at the top of the Album Chart: this week The Scissor Sisters enter at No1 with their second album ‘Ta-Dah’. Their self-titled debut album took 6 months to climb to the top back in August 2004 and has spent 70 weeks in the Top 40.
Justin Timberlake drops to No2 after a week at No1 with ‘Futuresex/Lovesounds’, ahead of Snow Patrol ‘Eyes Open’, down to No3 after 8 weeks in the Top 3. Rod Stewart’s price-promoted ‘Best Of’ moves up two places to No4, climbing ahead of The Kooks who slip from No3 to No5 with ‘Inside In/Inside Out’. In contrast with the Album Chart, there’s no change to the Top 3 singles for a third consecutive week: Justin Timberlake has a fourth week at No1 with ‘Sexyback’, ahead of Cascada ‘Everytime We Touch’ at No2 and Scissor Sisters ‘I Don’t Feel Like Dancin’ at No3. This week’s highest new entry is at No5 for Charity You’re A Star winner John Aldridge with ‘Lily The Pink’ – No3 on physical sales, but not available on download: it’s 38 years since The Scaffold took their original version to No1 in 1968.
