Hello, Matt Brown here returning to bring you the charts once again. Well, mostly. It’s another week where we’ve only got sales numbers to display. But good lord do we have along list of debuts, fifteen to be exact. I’m sure you don’t need me to tell you that with less than three months to go in 2017 we’re going to be seeing some big albums storming the charts, and that’s not counting any last minute releases we might not know about yet.
