Montreal rocker Sam Roberts was feeling the love on the Canadian album charts this week.

His new album, "Love at the End of the World," came in at No. 1 on the Canadian charts, pushing nearly 9,000 copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan figures.

It marks Roberts' first No. 1 disc -- his last album, 2006's "Chemical City," entered in at No. 3 with 10,000 in sales, while his first full-length, "We Were Born in a Flame," debuted at No. 2 in June of 2003.

Close behind was Madonna's "Hard Candy" (8,000), which remained at No. 2 for a second straight week.

Three Doors Down had the second best debut of the week, coming in at No. 3 with their self-titled effort (6,000), Duffy's "Rockferry" slipped one spot to No. 4, and last week's No. 1, Death Cab For Cutie's "Narrow Stairs," got knocked down to No. 5.

Rounding out the top 10 was Leona Lewis' "Spirit" No. 6, The Lost Fingers' "Lost in the 80's" at No. 7, Sarah McLachlan's "Rarities, B-Sides and Other Stuff Vol. 2" at No. 8, Garou's "Piece of My Soul" at No. 9, and Ariane Moffatt's "Tous Les Sens" at No. 10.

Other notable first week entries included the Green Day side project Foxboro Hot Tubs and their debut effort "Stop Drop and Roll!!!" at No. 13, the compilation "Reggae 2008" at No. 25, Jesse McCartney's "Departure" at No. 37, Scarlett Johansson's "Anywhere I Lay My Head" at No. 39, and the collection "More Country Heat 2008" at No. 48.

In the U.S., Three Doors Down hit the top spot, followed by rapper Bub B's "II Trill" in second, Julianne Hough's self-titled debut in third, the Frank Sinatra compilation "Nothing But the Best" in fourth, and Death Cab For Cutie in fifth.
