- The unlikely pairing of Led Zeppelin golden god Robert Plant with bluegrass warbler and fiddler Alison Krauss has placed at an equally unlikely No. 2 the debut of their vocal-harmony-drenched album, 'Raising Sand.' Shouldn't Plant really be resting his pipes for the big Zep reunion? Bad Alison! Bad, bad Alison!
- Serj Tankian's release of his first solo album, the expectedly polemical 'Elect the Dead,' resulted in a robust No. 4 showing in its first week. With the System of a Down frontman's burgeoning solo success, we're guessing there are three Armenian-American musicians in L.A. right now putting off making any big purchases for the time being.
- Neil Young's 'Chrome Dreams II' (yes, leave it to rock's greatest contrarian to release a sequel to an album he never bothered to put out in the first place) debuted at No. 11, selling 54,000 copies -- which, natch, is 54,000 more than the original ever sold.
- 'Carnival Ride,' Carrie Underwood (528,000 in 1st week)
- 'Raising Sand,' Robert Plant & Alison Krauss (113,000 in 1st week)
- 'Living Hard,' Gary Allan (69,000 in 1st week)
- 'Elect the Dead,' Serj Tankian (66,000 in 1st week)
- 'Noel,' Josh Groban (65,000 in 3rd week; 192,000 total)
