The Killers continue to dominate the Album Chart, taking a fifth week at No1 with ‘Sam’s Town’, chased by Vertigo label-mates Razorlight who climb from No4 to No2 after 16 weeks on chart with their self-titled second album.
Snow Patrol hold at No3 with ‘Eyes Open’, ahead of this week’s highest new entry: Mullingar’s The Blizzards at No4 with their debut album ‘A Public Display Of Affection’, fuelled by four Top 30 singles over the past 18 months. On his major-label debut Tommy Fleming is this week’s highest climber, up from No14 to No5 with ‘A Life Like Mine’ – approaching his previous best on this chart, No3 for both ‘The Contender’ (2000) and ‘Voice Of Hope’ (2005). Aerosmith have the next new entry at No6 with ‘Devil’s Got A New Disguise – The Very Best Of’, their first greatest hits CD to span the entire Columbia & Universal years. Beyoncé has a second week at No1 on the Singles Chart with ‘Irreplaceable’ with an increased lead over Cascada who holds at No2 with ‘Everytime We Touch’. Fedde le Grand climbs from No5 to No3 with ‘Put Your Hands Up For Detroit’, just ahead of Bob Sinclar & Cutee B’s ‘Rock This Party’, a non-mover at No4. Razorlight climb back to No6 after slipping to No10 last week with ‘America’, and this remains the most downloaded song in Ireland for a fourth consecutive week. The Game (featuring Junior Reid) has this week’s highest new entry at No16 with ‘It’s Okay (One Blood)’, the lead single from his forthcoming second album ‘Doctor’s Advocate’ and his fourth Top 20 single in Ireland.
