Another rather quiet week sees Sam Smith hang on uneventfully. I know, I’m really building this one up, aren’t I? Perhaps the most interesting announcement this week is the official confirmation that the chart is shifting to Fridays, where Radio 1 will grudgingly accommodate it in a reduced two hour slot. To be honest, that’s probably for the good of the chart show, as three hours of statistically-determined play listing is a bit much for most people. (Even I don’t actually listen to it live.)

This is the annual chart that follows on the Brit Awards, hence a bunch of odd re-entries. The awards themselves seem to have some short-term sales effect, and the primetime TV coverage is always good for shifting a few downloads to people who aren’t regular audience members. Without the Brits this would be another rather quiet chart.

I did think about doing a post for WWE Fast Lane but, well, the undercard is hardly a source of inspiration to anyone, is it? So let’s do the charts instead. This would have been an almost completely dead week were it not for a couple of late new entries.

Alright, then. We’ll get back to a reviewing schedule at the weekend, when we’ll start catching up on Wolverines vol 1, the final X-Force arc, All-New‘s trip to the Ultimate Universe, and Uncanny‘s curious decision to whack the reset button only a handful of months away from the universe-wide whacking of the reset button.
But in the meantime, let’s run through this week’s chart while it’s still vaguely topical.

So, yeah, still no time to write any reviews this week. Wolverines vol 1 is next in the queue. But let’s get the chart post done, since it’s another short one (and largely written already). So much for last week’s burst of new releases…

Our run of exceedingly dull charts finally comes to an end… next week. This week, though, there’s virtually nothing happening at all. Not on the singles chart, at any rate – the album release schedules are at least back in business.
