Sara Bareilles
Singer/songwriter Sara Bareilles scored the best-selling album in the country this week as her latest work, Kaleidoscope Heart, debuted at #1 by selling 89,500 copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan. Bareilles wrote on her website this morning, "I can't even believe that I'm writing this, but thanks to all of you who bought Kaleidoscope Heart, I had the #1 record this week! I had no idea that the record would be received with such open arms, and I can't thank you enough. I am humbled, and grateful, and a little overwhelmed. I look forward to thanking you all in person."

The second-highest debut this week came from Stone Sour at #6 with Audio Secrecy, which sold 46,000 units. This marks the second consecutive Top 10 debut for the quintet, as the album also claimed the top spot on the iTunes Rock Album Chart. Internationally, the album garnered the highest debuts of Stone Sour's career including Top 5 charts in Germany, Japan and Austria, as well as top 10 in the U.K. and Australia.

Additionally, Interpol debuted at #7 with their new, self-titled album, selling 37,500 copies, and Anberlin bowed at #9 with Dark Is The Way, Light Is A Place, moving 31,300 units.

The rest of the Top 10 this week was filled out by Eminem's Recovery at #2, the NOW 35 compilation at #3, Katy Perry's Teenage Dream at #4 and Disturbed's Asylum at #5. Justin Bieber's My World 2.0 is holding strong at #8, and the soundtrack for Camp Rock 2 is at #10.
