Alica Keys' "As I Am" skips back to No. 1 on the Billboard 200 with a small gain, pushing last week's chart-topper, the "Juno" soundtrack, to No. 2 ... the Mars Volta and Bullet for My Valentine arrive in the top five, as does the latest "Grammy Nominees" compilation ... A "Hannah Montana 2" dance remix album plants itself in the top 10 as well ... Other high debuts on the Billboard 200 come from Sarah Brightman, Andrea Bocelli, Vampire Weekend, Shelby Lynne, Willie Nelson and Idina Menzel ... In Progress Reports, we've got updates on Radiohead, Panic! at the Disco, the B-52's and Michael McDonald.
If you were looking to catch a quality freak show this Halloween, you could have looked no further than the Roseland in midtown Manhattan, where the B-52's played a rare New York show in front of a sold-out crowd glammed up to the max in a strange parade of holiday regalia.
