Week Ending 28th October 2012 / Albums Chart

It’s a very interesting albums chart because there were big new releases last week. And the winner is… Francis Cabrel with “Vise Le Ciel”. It’s not a surprise at all, as his last albums all reached the top spot. In this album, Francis Cabrel sings Bob Dylan‘s songs in French, and we can notice that the first-week sales figures of “Vise Le Ciel” are rather poor (36053) in comparison with the ones of his last studio album “Des Roses & Des Orties” (120385) in April 2008, that album stayed at the top for six non-consecutive weeks.

Florent Pagny is new at two with “Gracias A La Vida” (17487 sales). His last studio album “Tout Et Son Contraire” entered at the top spot in November 2010 with 24864 sales, it was number one for that week only. After three consecutive weeks at the top, Muse‘s “The 2nd Law” falls two at number three in its fourth week in the top 10 (14247 sales, -26%).

“Super Welter” is new at four for Raphaël (12938 sales). It’s a disappointing new entry, as his last three albums all reached the top spot, “Caravane” for 13 weeks from May 2005 to August 2006, “Je Sais Que La Terre Est Plate” for one week in March 2008 with first-week sales of 72248, and “Pacific 231″ for one week in October 2010.

In its fifth week in the top 10, “Opéra Rouge” is back up one place at five for Vincent Niclo & Les Choeurs De L’Armée Rouge (8713 sales, +70%). Stephan Eicher enters at six with  “L’Envolée” (8642 sales), he was number five with his last album “Eldorado” in April 2007.

“Les Grands Moments – Best Of” is a new entry at seven for Michel Sardou (8599 sales), his last studio album “Etre Une Femme 2010″ was number two for three weeks in September 2010. The musical “1789, Les Amants De La Bastille” is up a massive 37 places at number eight (6835 sales), the album reached number seven in April.

“L’Apogée” falls seven at number nine for Sexion D’Assaut in its 32nd week in the top 10 (6132 sales, -32%). In its second week in the top 10, the compilation “Starfloor 2013″ is down three places at ten.

Six albums drop out of the top 10 this week. After four weeks in the top 10, Garou falls eight at 11 with “Rhythm And Blues”, “NRJ Total Hits 2012 Vol. 2″ is also down eight at number 12. Lou Doillon‘s “Places” is down four at 13 and spent seven weeks in the top 10, C2C‘s “Tetra” falls eleven at 16. After three weeks in the top 10, Diana Krall is also down eleven at number 19 with “Glad Rag Doll”. Birdy falls ten at 20, “Birdy” spent 11 weeks in the top 10.

Hubert-Félix Thiéfaine is new at 14 with his new live album “Homo Plebis Ultimae Tour” (4787 sales). Amaury Vassili enters at number 17 with “Una Parte Di Me” (4607 sales), his two albums had reached the top 10, “Vincero” at number nine in April 2009, and “Canterò” at number eight in April and May 2011.

“Until Now” is new at number 41 for Swedish House Mafia, “Until One” was number 66 in October 2010. Kendrick Lamar enters at 57 with “Good Kid, M.A.A.D. City”. “House Of Gold & Bones Part 1″ is new at 58 for Stone Sour, “Audio Secrecy” reached number 29 in September 2010.
