Recently we've had some truly laughable drop offs from the top 10 in the albums chart, it seems to be becoming a regular occurance now that album sales are so poor. Here are all the albums that have dropped straight out of the top 40 since June.

Britney Spears ~ Glory [2-41-]
Bugzy Malone ~ Facing Time [6-62-x]
A Day To Remember ~ Bad Vibrations [6-71-]
KT Tunstall ~ Kin [7-63-]
Divine Comedy ~ Foreverland [7-77-]
Bat For Lashes ~ The Bride [9-61-]
Wild Beasts ~ Boy King [9-75-]
Twin Atlantic ~ GLA [9-79-]
Teenage Fanclub ~ Here [10-89-]
Dexys ~ Let The Record Show [10-x]
Moose Blood ~ Blush [10-x]

Three of those were top 10 last week.

Share any other examples.

Not a second week drop, but Westlife's debut album dropped 3-37 in January 2001, which I believe was a record drop within the Top 40 at the time (perhaps still is).

Marina's 'Froot' dropped from #10 to #44. Actually she's never spent more than her debut week in the Top 10 with all three of her albums :/ ('The Family Jewels': 5-16 and 'Electra Heart': 1-13).

I remember that, it went 79-3-37 in the space of three weeks, presumably it had been on some special deal for one week only though I can't remember now.

Led Zeppelin dropped from 9 to 59 and 10 to 67 respectively last August with Coda and Presence. Both were re-issues however..

I think this will become increasingly commonplace as sales continue to dwindle in amongst a steady sale for heavily streamed artists which fanbase acts will fall hard behind on week 2.

It was being sold at 3.99 in Woolies for a week (No 3), it was actually midweek No 1 that week so could have been worse!

Dexys 10-111
MB 10-119

David Brent 3-27
Bars & Melody 4- out of T200! (*)
Troye Sivan 5-51

(*) Bars & Melody's 143. a teen duo who came to fame on Britain's Got Talent, achieve the rare and unwanted distinction of dropping from number four to a position just outside the Top 200 with sales off a massive 94.93% week-on-week at 549, 10 fewer than the number 200 album.

At least Xmas albums have a good excuse for it... wink.gif

Saint Raymond's Young Blood dropped from 8 to 97 (89 places down)
Now this has to be the worst drop from the Top 10 for an album on the albums chart (not counting positions below 100)

Iron Maiden had a number of "albums" make big drops down the Albums chart in 1990. However the fact they charted on the Album chart was just on a technicality as they were double 12" singles which were counted for chart purposes as albums rather than singles:

Running Free / Sanctuary: 10-38-58-75
Women In Uniform / Twilight Zone: 10-47-59
Purgatory / Maiden Japan: 5-51-69
Run To the Hills / The Number Of The Beast: 3-50
Flight Of Icarus / The Trooper: 7-53
Running Free / Run To The Hills: 9-55
Wasted Years / Stranger In A Strange Land: 9-57
Can I Play With Madness: 10-46-75

Wait, wait!!

This thread shoulda waited for Joanne to be released for a truly record flop drop.

Omg can't believe that Glory TRASH charted higher than In The Zone and will go down as 'officially' more successful even though ITZ was a Rihanna style chart hit slow burner sad.gif

Joanne won't fall that badly. tongue.gif

Just because Glory charted higher doesn't mean it was more successful than In The Zone tongue.gif "Official" success is based on sales and longevity which ITZ had.

Lol. So an album that dropped from 2 to 41 to 94 will be considered more successful than an album that peaked at 13 yet had huge longevity. Ok then....
