The boss returned to record stores last week with his partners in music, The E Street Band and it seemed that they delivered just what some fans were looking for because when the dust settled they beat out a new CD from last year’s top selling rock act Linkin Park for the honor of holding the number one spot on The Billboard 200. 

Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band's first album together in 18 years, “The Rising” tallied 524,976 units sold last week landing them in the No 1 position on the charts in America.  They also topped the charts in an impressive 10 additional countries including Canada, the UK, Germany, Italy, Spain, Sweden, Belgium, Finland, Denmark, and Norway.  

Sales of “Reanimation”, Linkin Park’s rehashing or rather remixing of their top selling “Hybrid Theory” sold a less than expected 270,198 units it’s first week out. But that was enough to place them at No. 2 on Billboard. 

Other debuts that made the charts include Amerie’s “All I Have” which came in at No. 9. Def Leppard’s voyage into middle of the road Michael Bolton territory “X” didn’t quite make the Top 10 cut with sales at less than 77,000 units which landed them at No 11. Filter's “The Amalgamut” debut at no 32 and far behind in the pack the new solo album from former chart topper Darius Rucker of Hootie and Blowfish fame came it at No 127.
