Elsewhere in the Top 10 there is a new entry for X Factor winner Matt Cardle's latest album 'Porcelain', which arrives at Number Two in its first week on sale. Meanwhile, albums from London Grammar, Arctic Monkeys, Darkside and Polica stay strong in the Top Ten alongside 'Moon Landing' by James Blunt and William Onyeabbor's 'World Psychedelic Classics 5'
