    Evanescence enjoyed their second No. 1 album on the Billboard Top 200 this week! Their third album, a self-titled affair, landed at No. 1 with 127,000 copies sold. The band's last album The Open Door was released in 2006 and debuted No. 1 with 447,000 copies sold. That's a big difference, but it is what it is, in terms of record sales and CD sales in 2011, due to attrition in favor of digital music.

    Congrats to the Amy Lee- fronted band on this second run atop the charts.
