ARIA Releases two new charts
Robbie Williams () explodes onto the ARIA Album Chart this week with “Reality Killed The Video Star”, claiming his fourth Australian No.1 album to give him an impressive total of twelve weeks at the top of the chart. The international superstar, who will perform at the ARIA Awards next week, scored a total of nine weeks at number one for his 2004/05 “Greatest Hits” release, along with one week at the top for both “Intensive Care” and “Rude Box” in 2005 and 2006 respectively. He also claims the first chart topper on the new ARIA Digital Album Chart with “Reality Killed The Video Star” and whilst Foo Fighters were number one on the Physical Album Chart, Robbie’s digital sales were extensive enough to ensure him number one overall, as reflected by the ARIA Album Chart. It’s only the second time since digital album sales were included in the album chart some two years ago, that the number one Physical Album and number one on the ARIA Album Chart have been different.

In 1968 The Beatles released one of the most diverse and compelling albums of all time.
Recorded in the months after The Beatles returned disillusioned from India, their manager dead, their break up in sight, and wracked with internal tensions, the double White Album was immediately hailed as one of the most extraordinary, powerful albums in the history of music: a work of unparalleled influence and brilliance.
