Take That Tops U.K. Chart

TAKE ONE: U.K. group Take That's Progress, on UMG’s Polydor label, remained at #1 after last week’s year-best debut of 518k in sales, adding another 208k, giving it more than 725k in two weeks. That was more than Kings of Leon's 183k first week sales for Come Around Sundown, the year's previous biggest opening sale in the U.K., which was the one climber inside the top 10, moving #12-8. JLS, the group which were runners-up on U.K.'s The X Factor, debuted at #2 with Sony Music’s Outta This World, while Irish band Westlife’s Gravity, on Simon Cowell’s Syco Music label, also on Sony, bowed at #3.
