                                            Seems like the Wikipedia page sums up their recent chart activities quite nicely. But I'll do the next chapter soon - just for the sake of completeness (and because Wiki doesn't have all the chart positions)

                                                Most of all, not a single certitification from Norway is shown. of all 9 a-has studio albums all have sold Platina expect Memoriacl Beach, at least Gold.
