'Glee's' 'Warblers' and 'Lemonade Mouth' crack top five

There’s always Adele: The English vocalist’s “21” retook the No. 1 spot on the U.S. album chart this week as the TV-driven titles “Glee Presents the Warblers” and “Lemonade Mouth” arrived in the top five.

Adele’s soulful Columbia million-seller claimed the pinnacle for a fifth non-consecutive week with sales of 153,000, according to Nielsen SoundScan figures for the frame ended Sunday. Notching a gain of 65%, reflecting Easter holiday sales, the durable title has now bounced back to the top three times since debuting at No. 1 in March.

“Warblers” (Columbia), featuring the Fox show’s Darren Criss and Chris Colfer, debuted at No. 2 with an 86,000-unit week. It’s the 10th “Glee” title to march into the national top 10.

“Lemonade Mouth” (Disney), a musical “Breakfast Club” for millennial teens, moved up 14 rungs to No. 4 with 69,000 shifted in its second chart week. Title’s 222% gain has been fired by repeat airings on the Disney Channel.

Last week’s No. 1, Foo Fighters’ “Wasting Light” (RCA), dipped to No. 3, moving 72,000 (off 69%). Britney Spears’ “Femme Fatale” (Jive), which bowed at No. 1 three weeks ago, gained a notch to reach No. 5 selling 45,000 units.

Rounding out the upper reaches of the chart are Alison Krauss & Union Station’s “Paper Airplanes” (No. 6, 42,000 sold, down 49%), Mumford & Sons’ “Sigh No More” (No. 7, 39,000, up 12%), Paul Simon’s “So Beautiful or So What” (No. 8, 37,000, off 46%), Chris Brown’s “F.A.M.E.” (No. 9, 37,000, up 4%) and Justin Bieber’s “Never Say Never — The Remixes” (No. 10, 36,000, up 85%).

New releases by the Airborne Toxic Event and Emmylou Harris top a thin field of contenders for next week’s top 10.
