Come Around Sundown goes straight to the top of the Irish Album Chart
Kings Of Leon continue their extraordinary success this week - their fifth studio album Come Around Sundown has gone straight in at No. 1 on the Irish Album Chart. Despite lead singer Caleb Followill's recent protests that their new songs are in no way 'stadium-friendly', it looks as if the Tennessee rockers are going to have to be playing them for some time.
They have the distinction of being the first act to dislodge The Script's second album from the Album Chart summit. Science & Faith slips down to No. 2 this week. Elsewhere, the after effects of Michael Buble's gig at the Aviva Stadium are sill quite clearly being felt - his album Crazy Love is at No. 3, rising twelve places.
Surely buoyed by his recent reunion with Take That, Robbie Williams sees his greatest hits In And Out Of Consciousness take the No. 4 spot, whilst Imelda May's Mayhem completes the top five. The Irish rockabilly star continues to be a big hit - her Love Tattoo album sits at No. 6.
As for new entries, a coupe of older artists are still proving a big draw. Bob Dylan's Bootleg Series Volume 9: Witmark Demos goes in at No. 13 whilst The Beatles' 19621970: The Red & Blue Albums is at No. 17. The Beatles and Dylan also have re-releases debuting at No. 45 and No. 52 respectively.
With Chris DeBurgh's Moonfleet & Other Stories going in at No. 33, you may start to wonder what century you're living in. Thank goodness, then, for Hannah Montana and her album Forever, debuting at No. 25. We think...
