March saw limited movement on the charts, with The Future Sound of London close to claiming half a year at the top spot on the album chart. Hopefully as the lockdown ends, things will start to liven up again, but here are the albums from the last week in March:
The Future Sound of London – Cascade 2020
Front Line Assembly – WarMech
Goldfrapp – Seventh Tree
Pet Shop Boys – Battleship Potemkin (OST)
Étienne de Crécy – Super Discount 3
Deep Forest – Essence of the Forest
The Radiophonic Workshop – Burials in Several Earths
This may change soon, but the charts were a little slow during 2020, probably due to the seemingly never-ending lockdowns. Since January is always slow, so it was at the start of this year, but the albums are still a little different to how they looked the last time you saw them:
November saw The Future Sound of London firmly lodged at the top of the single and album charts for stowaways with their wonderful Cascade 2020 album and track. The rest of the chart saw relatively little movement, but here are the albums from the third week in the month:
Both charts in October was dominated by the return of The Future Sound of London, with Cascade 2020 holding the top spot on the album chart for the whole month, and the single Cascade finally knocking Pet Shop Boys‘ West End girls off the top of the singles half way through the month.
There was some back catalogue drama on the albums meanwhile, as demonstrated by this top ten from October 24th:
September started with Pet Shop Boys retaking the top of the singles chart with their lockdown version of West End girls, who then held onto the top slot for the whole of the month. The albums, meanwhile, belonged again to The Beloved, who held the top with their reissued Happiness for the whole month too.
