    Of course if they only assigned it to one album, we'd probably have albums vanishing from say the top 20 and then re-entering it at a similar posiiton 1 or 2 weeks later every few weeks as sales fluctuate between the parent and the greatest hits albuym (as can happen with the Billboard 200).

      Greatest Hits albums could be moved to their own chart after perhaps a year? I think in France they are just classed as compilation albums and are in the same chart as their equivlent of the Now albums.

        • Compilations should not have streams counting towards them period.

          Streaming a project where every single song is prior released music is simply called a playlist.

          The only time streams should count is if a compilation has a brand new song on it.

          A NOW Compilation not having streaming counted is the exact same logic that should be applied to any compilation.

            Imo, streams of songs should only be assigned to the album the song was originally released on. This would solve all problems. Greatest Hits should chart on the album charts but without streaming units (for old songs). That way, Greatest Hits albums people are really buying would still chart but there would be no streaming unites for those albums generated by a huge amount of old songs streamed from random playlists. The US rules with streaming unites assigned to different albums every week are even more ridiculous. I just checked the BB 200 and The Weeknds "The Highlights" just dropped 6-60 with "After Hours" and "Starboy" re-entering at the same time. Next week it could be the other way around again.

              Note that the original post specified Artist compilation and therefore greatest hits packages and not compilations such as the Now series. The latter does not include streams, but as stated before they are doubledipping to include streams for greatest hits compilations.

              • Streams to greatest hits albums should only be assigned if the entire album (or a certain percentage of it) was streamed by an individual streamer so you know they are listening to the Greatest Hits album rather than the individual albums. Of course it is possible that the streaming companies may not provide this much detail to OCC, but you can bet that the streaming companies know it....
                Personally i think the same should be true for all albums, but I guess the downplaying of the two most popular tracks has a similar effect...

                        The record companies have clearly requested that all the streams be counted for the greatest hits as opposed to the specific albums. It doesn't actually matter where they are being streamed from.

                          No, OCC count them twice. They are douple dipping the streams for both the parent album and the best selling greatest hits.

                            Fontaines D.C. outselling closest competition 4:1 with Skinty Fia on road to becoming their first UK Number 1 album

                            Record Store Day 2022 drives midweek sales boost for The Streets, David Bowie and more
                            By Carl Smith
                            Irish rockers Fontaines D.C. are on course to score their first-ever UK Number 1 album with Skinty Fia.

                            The Dublin-born group - comprising Carlos O’Connell, Conor Curley, Conor Deegan III, Grian Chatten and Tom Coll – are currently outselling their closest competition 4:1, with physical sales accounting for over 90% of Skinty Fia’s midweek sales. Previously, the band have claimed two UK Top 10 studio albums; 2019’s Dogrel (9) and 2020 record A Hero’s Death (2). See Fontaines D.C.’s full Official Charts history.

                            Spiritualized’s Everything Was Beautiful rides at Number 2 midweek, if their ninth studio album maintains its position through to Friday, it would see the space rock group claim a career best on the Official Albums Chart. See Spiritualized’s full Official Charts history here.

                            Close behind follows Another World, Brian May’s second solo album, looking to make a Top 3 debut (3), 24 years after its initial 1998 release. Remastered as part of the Queen guitarist’s Gold Series of reissues, the release includes remixes, rarities and live tracks, and if it holds on, it could become Brian May’s first Top 5 placing as a solo artist.

                            Elsewhere in the midweek Top 10, there are new entries from Stone Broken with third studio record Revelation (5), Bob Vylan and their unique fusion of punk and grime with Bob Vylan Presents: The Price of Life (6) and Bronx-born rapper Pusha T, who could manage his highest-charting UK album to date with It’s Almost Dry (7).

                            The Streets’ seminal debut Original Pirate Material (9) could reach a new peak thanks to its limited edition Record Store Day 2022 vinyl release, the record originally peaked at Number 10 in 2002. A condensed EP release of David Bowie’s Number 5-charting album Toy, also exclusive to Record Store Day 2022, sees the record vault back into the Top 10 midweek (10).

                            Record Store Day’s impact could also see Childish Gambino’s 2014 mixtape Kauai make its UK chart debut, after the record became available on vinyl for the first time (16).

                            Almost 60 years after they first played together, Taj Mahal & Ry Cooder’s Get on Board – an album of covers by blues icons Sonny Terry and Brownie McGhee - currently sits at Number 18 after a weekend of sales.

                            Elsewhere in the Top 40, Record Store Day releases see the possibility of Blur’s 1998 album Bustin’ + Dronin’ making its UK Official Albums Chart debut (21), T-Rex’s 1972 record The Slider re-entering the chart (26) and David Bowie claiming his second new entry of the week with Brilliant Adventure (27).

                            More vinyl reissues propel midweek chart movement for Slipknot’s eponymous 1999 debut (30), The Cure’s Pornography, which benefitted from an RSD picture disc edition vaults up the chart (34) and Frightened Rabbit’s 2013 LP Pedestrian Verse (36).

                            Nothing But Thieves’ combined release of Moral Panic and Moral Panic II as The Complete Edition is on track to make the Top 40 (38), and finally Blues legend Bonnie Raitt sits at Number 39 midweek with Just Like That…

                            • That Bowie EP is surely a completely different release to the album Toy? Only has 6 tracks on it. Other release that charted before is a box set. https://www.discogs.com/release/2297...h-All-The-Toys

                                • Upon further inspection it should be noted that the Bowie release at 27 should not be included. It is a 4-track EP. I had it listed as a mini-album on the release schedule as i thought it had more than 4 tracks. I suspect both the Bowie releases will be sorted out by Friday if not sooner. https://www.discogs.com/release/2297...t-Adventure-EP

                                  • Music Week:

                                    As It Was posts a strong 36,680 sales, heading for its fourth week at the top of an almost entirely unmoving singles Top 10. At No.2 is Jack Harlow's First Class (26,070 sales), while at No.3 is Cat Burns' Go (23,496 sales), which has climbed two places from last week. Dave's Starlight (20,663 sales) holds its position at No.4, and Aitch & Ashanti's Baby completes the Top 5 with 20,227 sales.

                                    In the albums chart, Fontaines DC are clear frontrunners, their third album Skinty Fia posting 17,722 sales (the bulk of those – 15,839 – coming from physical). Ed Sheeran's = is at No.2 (4,649 sales) with a new entry from Spiritualized, Everything Was Beautiful, closely behind at No.3 on 4,281 sales. Also new this week is Brian May's Another World (3,295 sales) at No.4, while Little Mix's Between Us (2,937 sales) completes the Top 5.

                                            • #1 for Rammstein would have been such a fantastic achievement! #2 is obviously still so good - their highest peak ever.

                                              • Seems the Kylie vinyl has shipped early. Not meant to be out until Friday.

                                                  Blossoms on course to bag third UK Number 1 album with Ribbon Around the Bomb

                                                  As Rammstein, Thunder, Future and Bloc Party all eye Top 10 entires
                                                  By Carl Smith
                                                  Blossoms look set to score this week’s Number 1 album with Ribbon Around the Bomb.

                                                  The Stockport indie export – comprising Tom Ogden, Charlie Salt, Josh Dewhurst, Joe Donovan and Myles Kellock – currently lead the race midweek. Should it hold on, Ribbon Around the Bomb will become the group’s third UK Number 1 album, joining their 2016 eponymous debut and 2020 record Foolish Loving Spaces. See Blossoms’ full Official Charts history here.



                                                  Just behind Blossoms after the Bank Holiday weekend of sales are German heavy metal outfit Rammstein. Their eighth studio album, Zeit, is on track to provide the group with a career-best Official Albums Chart peak of Number 2. Prior to this, the group boast five UK Top 40 albums. Check out Rammstein’s full Official Charts history.

                                                  British rock quintet Thunder currently sit at Number 3 with their fourteenth studio album Dopamine. The record looks set to become the group’s twelfth UK Top 40 album to date, on course to match the peak of their 2021 release All the Right Noises (3).

                                                  The Weeknd’s Dawn FM – 2022's biggest new release album of the year so far - vaults a staggering 35 places to Number 7 following its multiple collector’s edition vinyl formats.

                                                  Elsewhere in the midweek Top 10, Atlanta-born rapper Future could claim a career best of Number 4 with his ninth album I Never Liked You, Bloc Party sit at Number 6 with their first LP in as many years Alpha Games, and Reef’s sixth album Shoot Me Your Ace looks set to land at Number 8.

                                                  Further down the midweek chart, Let’s Eat Grandma are on track to score their second UK Top 40 album with Two Ribbons (22). Moving Pictures – the 1981 Number 3 album by Canadian rockers Rush – looks set to re-enter the chart this week thanks to a 40th anniversary reissue (23).

                                                  Infinite Disco, a recording of Kylie Minogue’s 2020 livestream concert in support of her Disco album, looks set to give the Aussie star her twenty seventh UK Top 40 record to date (29), with further possible new entries courtesy of Norwegian electro duo Röyksopp’s Profound Mysteries (33) and Miranda Lambert’s Palomino (38).
