The Coral’s Coral Island (Modern Sky) is also new at #2 today while live album Celebrate the Music of Peter Green (BMG)—a tribute to Fleetwood Mac’s founding guitarist—enters at #3.

Young Heart (Atlantic) by Birdy is new at #4 and Fortitude (Roadrunner) from French heavy-metal act Gojira lands at #6.
