The sixth studio album from the Sheffield rock band has accumulated 66,000 combined chart sales after just three days on sale, 67% of which is made of physical copies on CD and vinyl.

I'm wondering what love there will be in the long run for their new album. It's certainly not what would be called a classic but it's certainly different. I quite like it but it's not an album I could listen to in one go beyond the first listen as the songs just tend to blend into one after a while. I think "experimental" may sum up the album.

When I first heard 'Four Out Of Five' last week I didn't initially recognise it as them, but thought Turner sounded decidedly mid-1970s Bowie in his vocal inflections; I do suspect they've been listening to the Great Man's wares quite a bit since their last outing (probably since his early 2016 demise). Otherwise, the musical backdrop rather left me wondering where the usual killer chorus line was; it just sounded like a throwaway track from the 'AM' era, with its clunky drum-clap and plectrum-plucked bassline. Still a tower of strength musically compared with a lot of contemporary dross, and it's clear they haven't lost the knack of canny lyricism and artful, thoughtful composition. Maybe it's a grower? But in terms of long-term appeal beyond the AM's large fanbase, who inevitably were going to turn-out in sufficient droves to turn-in what will likely be the biggest seven-day album sale of the year to date, it's hard to see it being as sustained as its predecessors, not just because of the density and lack of immediacy of many of the tracks, but also the nature of the market which has shrunk-down and changed shape noticeably since 2013.

Presumably, we're looking at another bulk batch of 'starred-out' Top 100 entries this coming week, as surely every track of the new AM album will accrue enough units to register a position in the uncompressed tabulation.

We might find out after 6pm tonight. The midweeks top 40 that Music Week publishes on a Wednesday often contains starred out tracks (the recent album release from Post Maolne saw about a dozen of starred out tracks appear inside the top 40 and for many weeks there were 3 or 4 tracks from The Greatest Showman showing as starred out.

I'll check when the midweeks are published at 6pm but there is usually an article that Music Week publishes that also contains the top 40 and that is where the starred out tracks are usually listed. That article isn't behind a paywall so check www.musicweek.com after 6pm and you should be able to read the article.

Music Week haven't published the midweeks article behind the paywall for quite some time now. I'm surprised they stopped making users sign in to view the article.

I think I mentioned being able to view the midweeks article for free in the 2017 Midweeks thread. I can't recall when though, you must have missed the post I made.

Starred out tracks don't normally appear in the Monday midweeks article. I don't know why but one reason could that it's down to a lack of streaming data for the Monday midweeks.

Looking athe current top 40 there are 7 Artcic Monkeys tracks which are starred out of the top 40. The starred out tracks are between numbers 26 and 27 (3 tracks), between 32 and 33 (1 track), between 35 and 36 (2 tracks) and between 37 and 38 (1 track). This means that the number 40 track on the midweeks ('Look Alive' by Blockboy JB featuring Drake) would be placed at number 47 under the previous rules where no restrictions were in place.

Interesting. Such a travesty that they don't allow us the same luxury of seeing what's being arbitrarily overlooked in the full-week chart. Whilst I am pleased that we can at least get some handle on this because they include starred-out entries in the Wednesday midweeks, I am even more annoyed at them for not disclosing the same in the full-week edition; if it's deemed acceptable to do so in midweeks, available to non-subscribers via MW online, then were is the harm in offering them at the end of the week?

I'd like to see them too but Music Week only publish the Friday weekly chart in the Charts section of the website (which is behind a paywall) and that allows no room to include starred out tracks - it's just a straightforward listing of the top 75 imported into the Music Week charts database. Alan Jones has mentioned some starred out tracks at times but the word length of his weekly analysis is restricted in order that it can fit into the published magazine. Though some weeks even the analysis that appears online on a Friday is edited down for space reasons in the printed magazine.

Needless to say there are three versions of the charts published each week. The top 75/100 that is made public and which appears in Music Week / on the OCC site. Then there is the Top 100 the industry gets which is the top 100 published on the OCC website along with starred out tracks in their correct sales order. Finally there is a Top 200 which is compiled under the old rules - no restrictions on how many tracks an artist can chart and no application of ACR. Again this is an industry only chart. I've seen both industry only versions. The top 100 with starred out titles version contains starred out tracks that aren't hard to guess. The top 200 version is full of oldies in the bottom 100 part of the chart (as it was when this was the version of the chart that appeared in UKC+) plus as nothing is on ACR there are no big fallers as on the official top 100 when titles hit ACR. Everything just moves at a much slower pace.

Thank you Robbie. Maybe you won't wish to elaborate, but I have to ask what many of us will be wondering, and that is, how the devil did you get to see either of the 'industry-only' listings? I'm sure you won't get to see them weekly, but even getting to see a one-off example is surely pretty hard, as they're presumably never made public?

So The OCC still compile a Top 200? I thought that they reduced it to only a Top 100, several Months ago.

Or is it that they only let 'The Industry' see the Top 200 now, & not 'ordinary' Chart Fans?

in July 2008 they definitely compiled a Top 1000, as Alan Jones mentioned that 22 ABBA Songs were in it,
in the W/E 19th July 2008 Chart. He also said that 11 ABBA Albums were in the Album Top 1000, that Week.
This was all due to 'Mamma Mia!' being in UK Cinemas, at that time...

The official, publicly available chart, is a top 100 but a top 200 "Comprehensive" chart is still compiled for the industry. The version we see was reduced in size to a top 100 simply as a way of ensuring that the application of the ACR rule could be done as smoothly as possible. As the rule requires a record to have been on the chart for a minimum of 9 weeks the OCC decided to tie weeks on chart to weeks inside the top 100. In the weekly mailout of UKChartsPlus on 4 July 2017 the publisher of the newsletter announced the reduction in chart size by saying:

On Thursday 29th June 2017, I received an e-mail from The Official Chart Company, stating that the Singles chart published from 7th July, will be a Top 100 ONLY, as new chart rules require for weeks on chart to be reflected and it was felt that the best compromise between a Top 200 and Top 40 was a Top 100.
The Comprehensive Top 200 isn't affected by 3 tracks per artist and ACR rules. I assume that the industry still want to have access to a chart that is compiled under the old rules that existed until June 2017. However the OCC have decided to restrict availability of this chart solely to the music industry.

With regard to a larger chart, many years ago Alan Jones indicated that it was possible to "interrogate" (his word) the database to enable the compilation of a top 5,000. Whether the OCC compile a chart to such a large size or whether it requires a user with full access to the database to have to produce a special report I don't know but I'm guessing it's the latter. I notice that in recent years Alan Jones had stopped referencing positions outside of the top 200.

The Half Man Half Biscuit album arrived just in time for the TOTP 1985 episode last Friday when Midge Ure was featured with 'If I Was'. As one of the tracks namechecks Midge Ure several times! The track, 'The Bane Of Constance' features the line "Midge Ure looks like a milk thief" several times... quite bizarre to say the least!

The Paul McCartney album 'Thrillington' was the original demo version of 'Ram', arranged by Richard Hewson (he of the RAH Band). It was rejected by McCartney back in 1971 but finally saw the light of day in 1977. Paul was never happy with Hewson's work back in 1971 and so abandoned the recording session at the time. Hewson is from your part of the world Blondini, he's from Stockton and is a Boro supporter! He also was the engineer who worked on 'Abbey Road' and a couple of other Beatles albums back in the 1960s. Later Hewson had solo hits with 'The Crunch' and 'Clouds Across The Moon' among other tracks.

^Some great info there. Sadly, i don't like the RAH Band singles. I'd like to support the Stocktonians that gain fame. I might give that a listen though. It's very surprising that HMHB are doing great digital sales. If you looked at the iTunes thread Ash have been low but HMHB are higher. You'd think physicals'd be the main draw for both.
