    Oh I'm surprised the XX is out after they released I See You this year, but good riddance to the others.

  4. This looks like fun! Awwww, poor Take That.
  5. The top 10 is going to be loads of fun, indeed! I can't wait for Edele Edkins to crush the competition again!

    III has grown on me a lot and didn't really deserve the scathing reviews at the time. Sure, the album is far from perfect and their worst track ever is on it (Get Ready For It), but I do like most of the songs now. Do It All For Love is one of the greatest things they've ever done and These Days and Hey Boy are up there with their feel-good classics of the old days.

    100. DO YOU WANT THE TRUTH OR SOMETHING BEAUTIFUL- Paloma Faith (42-64-73-63-67-80-86-100) 616,800 (T/S 747,000)
    99. GREATEST HITS- Westlife (50-51-65-73-90-93-99) 621,100
    98. THE GIFT- Susan Boyle (13-32-40-55-65-79-88-98) 622,800
    97. ONLY REVOLUTIONS- Biffy Clyro (26-39-49-59-71-87-92-97) 627,800 (T/S 751,600)
    96. MERRY CHRISTMAS BABY- Rod Stewart (71-62-68-81-91-96) 629,000

    Seven acts on the rundown have 3 albums on this list Paloma Faith being the first though this is probably her last year to claim that tally as her debut album is the biggest faller this year- 14 places. Otherwise it’s fallers all around with Susan Boyle biggest album of the decade down a hefty 11 spots.

    95. HOME- Rudimental (78-83-89-95) 629,500
    94. RED- Taylor Swift (80-81-88-90-94) 638,500
    93. TOGETHER- Alfie Boe & Michael Ball (NEW) 640,400
    92. TURN IT UP- Pixie Lott (17-33-41-53-62-73-84-92) 642,500 (T/S 890,700)
    91. A DECADE IN THE SUN- THE BEST OF- The Stereophonics (85-93-91-96-91) 642,700 (T/S 1,380,600)

    We get the first of 5 new albums on the rundown at No 93 with the successful teaming of Alfie Boe & Michael Ball whose Christmas 2016 chart topper just steals a spot here. How Pixie Lott is still here is somewhat incredible but a very good year for the Stereophonics- the new album didn’t quite make No 1 but their best of remains a good seller and the first of 16 climbers!

    90. SEASONS OF MY SOUL- Rumer (36-36-43-54-61-71-82-90) 650,100
    89. FOUR- One Direction (92-76-83-89) 651,100
    88. IF YOU WAIT- London Grammar (85-85-87-88) 670,300
    87. THE MARSHALL MATHERS LP 2- Eminem (91-74-82-85-87) 677,200
    86. HEAVEN- Rebecca Ferguson (60-39-48-59-67-77-86) 680,400

    Big hitters Eminem and One Direction appear here with the first of their albums, Eminem has three and One Direction the first of four with “Four”. Everything is slipping though- have they done enough to make the end of the decade top 100?

    85. GHOST STORIES- Coldplay (77-77-79-85) 682,400
    84. ONLY BY THE NIGHT- Kings Of Leon (31-44-50-60-66-78-78-84) 694,000 (T/S 2,954,200)
    83. OUTTA THIS WORLD- JLS (18-28-37-47-56-63-74-83) 695,900
    82. NO MORE IDOLS- Chase & Status (43-44-49-58-64-75-82) 697,300
    81. 4- Beyonce (48-45-56-61-69-73-81) 709,400

    A bunch of more fallers, Coldplay have another 2 albums to come and KOL another one though they look unlikely to ever sell in those quantities again. Yesterday’s boyband JLS continue a swift descent and surprisingly “4” is the only Beyonce album to make the list.

  10. I’m surprised there’s only one Beyoncé album here, I’d have thought Lemonade would have sold reasonably well given that it exclusive to one streaming service (that’s absolutely why I went out and bought it physically).

    Just shows how important promo is I guess, there was so much buzz around her after that Glastonbury set.

    Eyes Wide Shut is such a bop! And keep slaying a tad, Pixie!

    80. CAUSTIC LOVE- Paolo Nutini (75-68-72-80) 710,800
    79. NUMBER ONES- Michael Jackson (xx-xx-xx-xx-xx-100-95-79) 718,800 (T/S 2,547,800)
    78. FALL TO GRACE- Paloma Faith (62-58-63-62-68-78) 719,200
    77. UNAPOLOGETIC- Rihanna (58-46-55-61-70-77) 727,600
    76. CURTAIN CALLS: THE GREATEST HITS- Eminem (NEW) 734,100 (T/S 2,020,100)

    Three woman have 3 albums on this list, Paloma who pops up again at No 78, and Rihanna are two of them. Eminem now also manages to have three on the list with “Curtain Call” a new entry at No 76 after a great year never leaving the top 100 all year and selling its 2 millionth copy! The ever present Michael Jackson also continues to sell under the radar and is the biggest climber of 16 places.

    75. EVERY KINGDOM- Ben Howard (97-61-64-65-71-75) 737,300
    74. GOLD- GREATEST HITS- Abba (xx-xx-xx-98-96-89-80-74) 739,000 (T/S 5,594,200)
    73. SINCE I SAW YOU LAST- Gary Barlow (76-52-60-64-73) 740,100
    72. IN AND OUT OF CONSCIOUSNESS- GREATEST HITS 1990-2010- Robbie Williams (14-29-36-43-51-57-65-72) 743,900
    71. SWINGS BOTH WAYS- Robbie Williams (52-50-58-63-71) 749,900

    With another “Mamma Mia” film out this year the future looks good for sales of “Gold” which should continue to advance up the charts. Former band mates Gary Barlow and Robbie Williams continue to battle here with Robbie’s GH set overtaking Barlow.

    70. GET WEIRD- Little Mix (76-70) 758,100
    69. LADY KILLER- Cee-Lo Green (23-28-37-45-54-59-69) 772,900
    68. JAKE BUGG- Jake Bugg (57-53-59-62-68) 773,700
    67. A PERFECT CONTRADICTION- Paloma Faith (82-56-58-67) 774,100
    66. LEGEND- Bob Marley & The Wailers (81-66) 781,100 (T/S 4,337,100)

    Little Mix had no albums on the list 2 years ago but now “Get Weird” is the first of two albums from them here. Paloma Faith’s best showing so far clocks in at No 67 but the real star is Bob Marley & The Wailers climbing an impressive 15 places.

  16. I had no idea Paloma Faith was that big in the UK, I'm kind of baffled to be honest.

    65. CEREMONIALS- Florence + The Machine (54-38-44-54-55-57-65) 783,000
    64. MY WORLD- Justin Bieber (12-22-29-40-47-52-56-64) 799,200
    63. SCIENCE AND FAITH- The Script (19-27-30-39-44-50-54-63) 804,200
    62. CHAOS AND THE CALM- James Bay (98-61-62) 806,300
    61. TO BE LOVED- Michael Buble (50-48-51-55-61) 814,700

    First outings here for Florence + The Machine, Justin Bieber, and Michael Buble but all have better to come. James Bay can’t quite maintain his climb of his last year but does move over the 800,000 mark.

    I'm baffled at lots of those. I don't even know what a Jake Bugg is and he sold more albums than Gary Barlow and Robbie Williams in the same period.

  20. I wonder why Bob Marley and The Wailers have climbed so much this year? Has there been an anniversary or something?
