Vancouver crooner Michael Buble led a triple play of debuts on the Canadian album charts this week.

Buble's eighth full-length disc "Crazy Love" checked in at No. 1 with 37,000 in sales, according to figures compiled by Nielsen SoundScan.

It marks the second straight time he's debuted on top, and the first week numbers are the best this year since Billy Talent's "Billy Talent III" rang up 40,000 back in July.

Buble also snagged the No. 1 spot south of the border, selling an impressive 132,000 copies of "Crazy Love" in the U.S. (The release only had three days to compile sales, since it was bumped from Oct. 13 to Oct. 9.)

Back here, Matthew Good's brand new effort, "Vancouver," checked in at No. 2 with 11,000 in sales, followed by the premiere of the Backstreet Boys' (yes, they are still around) "This is Us" (9,000) at No. 3.

All the movement up top forced Barbra Streisand's "Love is the Answer" from No. 2 to No. 4, and Madonna's "Celebration" fell out of No. 1 last week down to No. 5.

Teisto's "Kaleidoscope" came in at No. 6, the Black Eyed Peas rebounded three positions to No. 7, and the final debut came from Boom Desjardins' "Rock le Quebec" at No. 8.

Rounding out the top 10 was Three Days Grace's "Life Starts Now" at No. 9, and the French compilation "Generation Passe-Partout" at No. 10.

In the U.S., Kiss's "Sonic Boom" entered in second, followed by Toby Keith's "American Ride" in third, Barbra Streisand in fourth, and Jay-Z's "The Blueprint 3" in fifth.
