Other movers included Lang Lang's recording of Rachmininoff's Piano Concerto No. 2, which moved from number six to seven, and Richard James's As in a Dream, which jumped from number 14 to number 11, reaching its highest point.

The string quartet Bond's Classified moved from number nine to number six, while Luca Micarelli's Music From a Further Room dropped from number five to number nine.
