Kasabian started a second week atop the U.K. album chart yesterday (Sunday) with their third album "West Ryder Pauper Lunatic Asylum" (Columbia/Sony Music Entertainment). Meanwhile, French DJ-artist David Guetta scored his first U.K. No. 1 single with "When Love Takes Over" (Positiva/EMI), featuring Kelly Rowland.
The Kasabian album, the band's third, leads the way again ahead of its predecessor at the chart summit, Paolo Nutini's "Sunny Side Up" (Atlantic/Warner Music). Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band's "Greatest Hits" (Columbia/Sony Music Entertainment) moved up 7-3 and George Harrison's retrospective "Let It Roll" (EMI) debuted at No. 4. Remarkably, that's the late former Beatle's highest solo placing on the U.K. album chart since "Living In The Material World" reached No. 2 in 1973.
In its 39th chart week, Kings Of Leon's "Only By The Night" (Hand Me Down/Sony Music Entertainment) marked the band's latest British visit for live shows by climbing back 16-6. "The Very Best of Jim Reeves" (Sony Music Entertainment), which climbed again 10-7, is the late country legend's highest-charting album in the territory since "40 Golden Greats" climbed to No. 1 late in 1975.
