It's as you were at the top of the Irish Album Chart this week as Les Misérables Original Motion Picture Cast holds off Emile Sande's Our Version Of Events to keep the number one title for another week.
Scottish rockers Biffy Clyro enter the chart this week at No.3 with their awesome sixth studio album Opposites. Justin Bieber is another new entry in the top five; his Believe Acoustic record charts at No. 4, with Villagers Awayland falling two places to No. 5.
The rest of the top ten has a familiar look to it, with Lumineers, Rihanna, One Direction, Ed Sheeran and Bruno Mars all proving their staying power and ability to shift astonishing amounts of records.
There are further new entries for Italian tenór Andrea Bocelli, US indie stalwarts Local Natives, fellow American singer-songwriter Matthew E. White, and country music royalty Don Williams.
