James Arthur starts a fifth week at No. 1 on Australia’s new singles chart with "Say You Won't Let Go" (Columbia/Sony) while Bon Jovi’s This House is Not For Sale (Island/Universal) finds a home at the top spot of the latest albums chart.  

But it’s another house -- Crowded House -- which is attracting attention as the folk-rock favorites land all eight of its albums in the top 100 just days out from the band's induction into the ARIA Hall of Fame.  

Bon Jovi’s 13th studio set House earns the American rock legends their 10th No. 1 on the ARIA Albums Chart

The New Jersey outfit’s LP ends the chart-topping streak of Jessica Mauboy’s The Secret Daughter (Songs From The Original TV Series) (via Sony Music) at three weeks. Perth alternative rock band Birds Of Tokyo flies into the chart at No. 3 with Brace (via Eleven/EMI), while Robbie Williams’ U.K.-chart topping set The Heavy Entertainment Show (Columbia/Sony) opens at No. 4 and Michael Buble's Nobody But Me (Reprise/Warner) slips 2-5. 

New albums by Melbourne rapper Pez (Don’t Look Down at No. 7 via EMI); U.S. singer-songwriter Alicia Keys (Here at No. 14) and homegrown retro-electronic outfit Client Liaison (Diplomatic Immunity at No. 15 via Dot Dash/Inertia) enjoy strong starts. 

Crowded House sees its entire back catalogue return to the albums chart ahead of next Wednesday’s (Nov. 23) ARIA Awards in Sydney, where the Neil Finn-led band will be inducted into the national record industry's hall of fame. 

The veteran band crowds the charts with eight albums: The Very Very Best Of Crowded House (No. 39) and Woodface (No. 45), Crowded House (No. 46), Temple Of Low Men (No .53), Together Alone (No. 54), Afterglow (No. 61), Intriguer (No. 66) and Time On Earth (No. 96).

Meanwhile, James Arthur’s "Say You Won't Let Go" retains top spot on the ARIA Singles Chart, consigning The Weeknd featuring Daft Punk’s “Starboy” (Republic/Universal) to the runners-up position for another week. “Starboy” is, however, the leader on the ARIA Streaming Tracks chart.

The top five on the ARIA Singles Chart is completed by The Chainsmokers feat. Halsey’s “Closer” (unchanged at No. 3 via Columbia/Sony), Calum Scott’s "Dancing on My Own” (up 5-4 via Capitol/EMI) and Little Mix’s "Shout Out To My Ex" (down 4-5 via Syco/Sony), respectively.
