Katy Perry's "Teenage Dream" moved down one to No. 5, the "NOW 16" collection slipped three rungs to No. 6, and Robert Plant's covers album "Band of Joy" landed at No. 7.
Wrapping up the top 10 was Disturbed's "Asylum" at No. 8, Brandon Flowers' first solo effort "Flamingo" at No. 9, and Leonard Cohen's "Songs From the Road" at No. 10.
