'21' onslaught continues

Adele has returned to number one, with her album '21' pushing Foo Fighters back down the charts.

2011 has undoubtedly belonged to Adele. The British singer released her new album '21' back in January and has watched as the collection smashes through every challenge put in front of it. Remaining at number one for a record breaking twelve weeks, '21' was only halted by the rock frame of Dave Grohl.

Foo Fighters returned with their new album 'Wasting Light' last week, their first blast of new material in four years. Fans snapped up the collection in droves, sending Adele tumbling from pole position.

Now the singer has seized back her crown. The Official Chart Company revealed this week's countdown last night (April 24th) and once again '21' was sitting pretty at the top of the charts.

Returning to pole position, '21' sent Foo Fighters stumbling down to number two. 'Wasting Light' is still selling strongly, and was able to beat off competition from Adele's debut album '19' which sits at number three.

There were no major newcomers in the Top Ten this week, although Katy B was able to celebrate her third week in the upper echelons of the chart with her Rinse FM released debut album 'On A Mission'.

Elbow fell to number eleven with 'Build A Rocket Boys!' while bass inflected songwriter Jamie Woon reached fifteen with his debut album 'mirrorwriting'. Splitting critics, the involvement of Burial places a warm bed of sub-bass below Woon's slick yet emotive R&B derived songwriting.
