'Tranquility Base Hotel And Casino' tops the chart...
'Tranquility Base Hotel + Casino'

Arctic Monkeys notched up the UK's biggest selling vinyl album in 2018, it has been revealed.

The Official Chart Company have compiled a list of the country's favourite vinyl releases, and it makes for interesting reading.

Arctic Monkeys are out front, with their divisive-but-fascinating return 'Tranquility Base Hotel And Casino' fighting off competition from the all-conquering Greatest Showman soundtrack.

Sadly, there are only three new releases in the 2018 chart - with George Ezra's album 'Staying At Tamara's' hitting No. 6.

The rest of the chart is dominated by classic releases, with Fleetwood Mac's 'Rumours', Queen's 'Greatest Hits' and Pink Floyd's 'Dark Side Of The Moon' all hitting the Top Five.

The reason? Well, they're stocked by large supermarkets, and hence gain a higher profile.

Back in 2016 Clash probed the vinyl charts, and asked if they were a real representation of what you've been listening to - spoiler alert, they aren't...
