Elsewhere Biffy Clyro‘s ‘Only Revolutions’ is back in the top 10 at Number Nine having climbed from 13.

In the Official Compilation Albums Chart ‘Hope For Haiti Now’, the star-studded soundtrack from MTV‘s ‘Hope For Haiti Now: A Global Benefit For Earthquake Relief Telethon’ featuring contributions from Jay-Z, Coldplay and Madonna, has shot straight to the top.
