Can we say it's one of the biggest eras since Adele's 25?

In terms of chart success, 'Divide' was even bigger than Adele's '25' - with the only exception being the US.

Examples (peak / weeks in the top 10):
Germany: Adele - 1 for 3 weeks / 20 weeks // Ed Sheeran - 1 for 7 weeks / 47 weeks
UK: 1 for 13 weeks - 43 weeks // 1 for 20 weeks / 78 weeks
Australia: 1 for 8 weeks - 71 weeks // 1 for 27 weeks / 89 weeks
France: 1 for 7 weeks - 15 weeks // 2 for 8 weeks / 32 weeks (up to August 2018)
Canada: 1 for 12 weeks / 38 weeks // 1 for 9 weeks / 78 weeks

Ireland:

Back in the top 10. Could the album make it to 2 years in the top 10 the way 'X' (which has actually even spend 3 years in there) did?

Austria:
7 (16) Divide 94 weeks (No. 1 for 5 weeks)

Denmark:
4 (11) Divide 96 weeks (No. 1 for 36 weeks)

It's great that the album keeps returning to the top 10 in so many countries despite being out for so long now and active promo having stopped a while ago. Not many albums achieve that...

Since Japan is the only major music market among all those countries, is that country known for Western acts experiencing notable tour effects with their albums on the Albums Chart? 'Divide' will be 2 years old by then but has more room for growth in terms of popularity in Japan than let's say Ireland or NZ, where the album already spent months at No. 1 and was a huge hit.

Ireland:
6 (7) Divide 97 weeks (No. 1 for 28 weeks)

Yet another week in the top 10. The album has the potential to spend its 104th charting week in the top 10 in at least Ireland and NZ, which would be a really huge achievement.
